Christmas Panel.

Posted on | November 27, 2013 | 14 Comments

This wall hanging is another little finish. I had done all the quilting on it several months ago, but when I went to bind it I couldn’t find the fabric I had set aside.  I put the quilt away knowing that the fabric would turn up somewhere. Obviously it did. It turned out it was folded in with another project I had prepared and turned up when I was sorting out some project boxes.

The centre is a panel and then there are two added borders – narrow stripes and then wider star fabric.

I quilted wavy lines below the village and pebbles above it.

And some echo quilting around the trees.

In the border there are loops and stars. And stripes cut on the diagonal for the binding – once I found it!

It was a very simple little wall hanging to make. And I have enough to make a second one.

And now for something different. Here is a little dilly bag I have crocheted as a gift.

Hope you have a lovely weekend planned. Our US family is enjoying an extended weekend. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

This sweet little pattern can be found at Groovy textiles.
