O Tannenbaum Revisited

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.

*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.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  2. That is such a fun and practical Christmas Tree. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving right back to you!

  4. Too cute! I should make one of these for my sewing room. I'm sharing this over on my FB page, Nakeytoes Quilting, so that other's can admire it, too. :)

  6. I know this is awfully late but I still have the quilted tannenbaum on my door that was inspired by reading your blog back in 2017. I made this as a door quilt because my door is metal and not well insulated, so every time I come down the stairs I get this burst of cold air when I walk by. Thank you for the inspiration. I'm thinking of making a few more so I can change them bbn out as the temps rise. I'd love to send a picture but can't figure it out.
