Tree, Quilted

Whoo-hoo, the quilting is finished! This is not bound yet, and it's just stuck to the door here with visible magnets, but you get the idea.

The original plan was for it to hang on the back of a door, but my son decided it would be safer for the real ornaments if it hangs on a wall. I'll add sleeves top and bottom before I bind it, so the sleeves will be caught in the binding seams. Then after it's bound I'll add the thread loops for hanging the ornaments.

The tree itself is quilted along the seams, and the background is horizontal lines, presser foot-width apart. These triangles and rows finish 3" high. I'll add the thread loops at the triangle intersections so there will be lots of places where they can hang ornaments.

Come back on July 18 for my post on the 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop sponsored by Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict, to see the finished tree. No more posts about this Christmas tree until then. 😉

Linking up with Sarah's Whoop Whoop Friday - check out what everyone else is celebrating over there.


  1. Can't wait to see!!!! I love this tree

  2. You got it done! It looks great and is the perfect size for the back of a door. I completely understand hanging it on a wall to protect the ornaments, though.

  3. Congrats on a fun finish! It's a perfect tree for someone without a lot of space.

  4. What a great idea! I can't wait to see what it looks like with ornaments!
