Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree...




Hi, all!

It's starting to feel a bit more like Christmas here - gifts are piling up, the weather is cooling off, and some of the Christmas crafting is finally completed!!



I showed you this teaser on Monday - the top of the appliqued Christmas tree, which shows some detail of the quilting.  This wall hanging is only about 20 x 24, but it took six bobbins to do the quilting!  Whew!!



Here it is in all of its glory - isn't it pretty?  I don't know if you can see it, but there are some crystal snowflakes scattered in the white background...


What seems to be a design feature is actually a desperate attempt to cover up a smudge on the white fabric, but it worked pretty well!


More detail of the quilting and applique...


And one more shot, just for fun!!

The wall hanging was made by this pattern, called Swirled Christmas, that I purchased on Craftsy.  I highly recommend it - it was simple, well written, and helped me make a wonderful Christmas keepsake for my in-laws!

*%*%*%*%*%*%*%*

So that's my whoop whoop for the week!

What are you whooping about?

What has set your heart and feet to dancing this week?

Share with us - we want to cheer you on!!

The linky party will stay open until Sunday at midnight.

Be there or be square!

Hugs and have a very merry Christmas!

  19. Nothing for me to share - it just seems to be all cookies, all the time, right now, but that wall hanging is lovely! Can't believe it took 6 bobbins - worth every stitch.

  22. Oh, I love the blog title. :) Anyway, I too must confess that I am an "almost" fabric addict. I just think that it is one of those materials that you can use to do with it almost anything. The potential is limitless. That's why Printing to Fabric is getting much more common these days.
