I have made tutorials… but not tried to make them into patterns...so I am a bit nervous!!!

And the good news… its free for you to download… Woot woot!! 😉

An idea came to me during a walk with my dog Molly

resulted in a quick and Modern Christmas wallhanging

oh it’s so great when creativity struck you!!

I hope you will like it as much as I do…

I was in need of some new wallhangings.. with a more modern look

and a colour change

so here you go…

Modern Christmas Tree

KqCwy6XphShpSjAg.jpg

Its made in mostly solids except for the baubles and the foot that have prints

I used a light to medium grey as background and made a white tree with pastel colored baubles…

(for those who remembers… I bought a white tree last year…

and I so love the light it gave.. and hopefully will give this year too… 😉 )

and I like a little bit of fun

so this tree is even on one side and a bit more playful on the other half..

Who has a perfect tree??

Well I don’t!!

think it adds playfulness to the tree… :)

and of course when I am about to quilt.. I just need to test out something new

so I quilted rows of stars… like a star garland

ohhh.. they are definitely not perfect… I call them playful as well … 😉

Learn while doing that’s my motto!

Added a white and light blue striped binding …loved the result of that!!

Perfect frame to the quilt!

Ikea fabric for backing also a perfect match…

Happy to have a new quilt for the holidays!!!

Happy Holidays to you!!
