This holiday tree is modern looking with green spirals used to form a tree shape.
I originally was going to use silver and gold fabric for the ornaments on the tree. I cut out the ornaments and star and placed them on the tree but they didn’t “pop” on the white background. So I put the prefused ornaments and star in my prefused fabric box to use on another day. I then found some holiday fabric in my Christmas fabric box that looked good on the tree. I used a yellow shimmer fabric (Northcott fabric), a Christmas stripe, and red fabric for the different sized ornaments on the tree. After I fused the green spirals for the tree shape and the pot on the background fabric, I used free motion quilting to quilt the background. Then I added the star and the ornaments and machine appliqued them to the quilt using the blanket stitch.
I used 2 shades of green shimmer fabric for the outer border and binding. The finished quilt wall hanging is about 32″ x 44″.
Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
