Made by my wonderful friend Shirley with the blog
(Click the link to read about her modern tree)
Shirley was one of my proof readers for this free pattern
(You can find the pattern at my sidebar or at my header..
or click the link above…)
When making this pattern I so wanted to make a background
with low volume fabrics…because I just love them…
but it wouldn’t work with a white tree… 😉
So I am so happy to see a tree made with these
warm low volume fabrics…and I must say …
I love it VERY much…
perfect in so many ways…
Gorgeous warm Christmassy colours
and look at her genius quilting…
Wood grain !
And combined with narrow straight stitching…
Looks fantastic!
Love the choice of binding too…pink stripes!!!
So Thankyou Shirley for sharing this tree with me today…
It gives me such pleasure to see how others interpreters the pattern
and make their own tree…
So…if anyone else out there is making this tree…
Please share…
It would make me very happy!!
What a happy day!
See you!!

I have made tutorials… but not tried to make them into 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


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!!!

So if you want to make an easy little quilt for Christmas…

you can either download it here.. or go to my pattern page at the top or

click the modern christmas tree picture in my sidebar…

Happy Holidays to you!!

And oh.. if you decide to make it…

please share.. I have added info on that in the pattern!!

See you!!
