Christmas complete...

Wouldn't that be nice if I actually could say "Christmas complete".. as in all the shopping done? Wishful thinking on my part.. I've barely begun.

But I did finished the Christmas Wall hanging and wanted to share some of the completed pictures.

I quilted this one by hand and couldn’t be happier with the results.



I also added buttons as the holly berries to give it dimension.

The fabrics for the main body are from the "12 days of Christmas" group by Henry Glass. The binding is from the line “Fruitcake” by Basic Grey for Moda.

I wasn’t sure about my binding choice – I had initially planned on going with a green binding. But I’m glad I went with what I did.

Next – I plan on making a Mantle Quilt that coordinates with this wall hanging. Let’s hope it looks as good on the mantle as it does on paper!

Oh how sweet! And I'm so (selfishly) glad it didn't mean all your shopping was done -- I'd have been terribly jealous! LOL! Happy Thanksgiving, Heidi! :)

Your wallhanging is gorgeous - I love the text fabric you used in the tree and the buttons work great.

Yep - not even started my Christmas shopping yet and it's like a month today! YIKES!
