Entering the Land of Blog

Blogging seems like such a great way to create a journal of progress and what better time to start than the beginning of the year. On Dec. 31st, I created a list of WIP and a list of quilts I would like to start. Each list contains 10 items. It's a little daunting to see all the projects recorded in black and white. I keep reminding myself that many of the WIP just need quilting and binding. Not so bad.

I've been promising my mother a Christmas Tree wall hanging with buttons attached so that she can hang ornaments on the wall hanging rather than put up a tree in limited space. I finally started it just before Christmas and had hoped to finish it in time to give to her for a present. I'm going to be a little late ... or maybe early for next year.

I decided to use a simple design for the tree shape so that the ornaments would be the main focus. After completing the tree, I didn't really like it much. It looked too plain. I added the ribbon border and felt a lot better.
Now ... onto the quilting.

  1. I think your tree wall hanging is such a great idea! Maybe I'll move that way myself when I get older. It would also make a great advent calendar. And it turned out beautifully -- I expecially like the ribbon border. Your mom is sure lucky! She's probably used to great gifts from your hands.
