Yeah I finally actually got something finished. I made these Christmas ornaments for each family member that we will be spending Christmas with this year. I had fun once again combining my two loves; quilting and stamping!
The tree pattern is a design by Carol Doak. It is paper piecing which is a block piecing technique which I really enjoy for its ease and precision. Rather than stuffing the ornament I choose to do it like I do my fabric postcards using a stiff fusible interfacing. I stamped the back with year and a sentiment and decorated the front with Swarovski crystals and metallic thread. The edges are overcast with a heavy thread and then I hot glued the star on top with a gold cord hanger. The only problem is I forgot to make myself one!
