Donna and I have started on our Christmas in July quilt projects.
Here is my Celtic Christmas Convergence quilt/wall hanging. As you know, my 1st attempt at a convergence quilt was a disaster. But no fear… I wanted to try again but with a Christmas theme. This time I made sure to use my 1/4″ foot to make sure all my seams were accurate.
After I made the converged background I decided it needed some sort of applique. So I cut out different style Christmas trees out of white paper to audition different options.
While straightening up my workspace, I came across a Celtic Christmas Tree pattern that I bought while in Ireland. I loved the Celtic knot style tree. So I used fusible bias tape to make the tree and then used a decorative stitch to adhere it to the background. The end result is this modern Christmas wall hanging.
I love it. These photos do not do it justice and my quilting is cool too.
I can’t wait to start on my next Christmas in July project.
