The long Thanksgiving weekend allowed a lot of sewing time and There was enough Nordic Nature by Island Batik left in these great Christmas colors to pair with their Custard fabric. The first project I made was in May for the Ultimate home decor blog hop.
First I cut all my patches using AccuQuilt hst dies.
Started stitching them in rows and using large patches of Custard where I could.
Although you can’t tell in the photo, the red patches are puffed blocks for ornaments. That’s why the quilt hangs funny. See my oops?
A Christmas Tree wouldn’t be a Christmas Tree without gifts. Using a fusible I added 2 presents on the left. The truck is a new die from AccuQuilt which I had to modify, I used larger circles for the tires to create big boy tires.
Here it is on the frame, you can see the puffed blocks. To my amazement this was the squarest quilt I have ever made. The puffed blocks were a real concern for me.
Here it is quilted and bound. For batting I used black Hobbs Batting. Red and white print from Nordic Nature for the binding. Kinda looks like a candy cane.
