Christmas

It’s almost Christmas.  My Christmas wall hangings are on the walls.

One of my favorite wall hangings is one that was three boring green and white trees.  After it was pieced, The designer told me that the pieces were twisted in the instructions.  It was not a pretty wall hanging.  I was not going to take the pieces apart and redo the piece. There had to be a way to fix it.

I decided to decorate the trees.  Using the built in embroideries, I added garland with gold thread.  Then I added “balls” with a close zig zag stitch.  Still not satisfied, I added “tinsel” with silver thread.  Now, it was getting better.

At the time, I was making folded fabric ornaments.  I gave instructions for one of them in the last blog.  I added several ornaments and it was finally done.

No matter how bad a piece is, it can be changed to something that is much better.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
