Now that Thanksgiving is upon us, it's time to think about Christmas, and Christmas decorations.
Last year I created a life-size Christmas Tree wall hanging for my son's home. They don't have room for an actual tree, so they have a full size quilted one. With real ornaments. *
This project was part of last year's 12 Days of Christmas in July hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
It was so popular that I wrote a tutorial for making it. You can find the tutorial here. It has been my most popular post ever.
There's still time to make a Christmas Tree wall hanging like this before Christmas. If you know anyone, such as a student or a nursing home resident, who doesn't have space for an actual Christmas tree, this two-dimensional one would be ideal. And a lovely way to display their collection of treasured ornaments.
Before we jump into the Christmas season, though, I want to wish all my readers a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you get to enjoy time with friends and family, and lots of good food.
Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts and My Quilt Infatuation
*Pardon the magnets holding the quilt to the metal door. The quilt has a standard hanging sleeve for hanging it in the usual way on a wall, but I needed to use the door for photos.
