In the spirit of the season here is a crazy quilted Christmas wall hanging made many years ago. Again, it is a very early work (Sept, 1996). I bring it out every year to celebrate the season. Some day I would like to do another Christmas themed crazy quilt as my skills have improved slightly since the construction of this one. First photo, the whole wall hanging;
Here is a close up of the wreath block and a close up of the silk ribbon wreath.
Next, close up of the candle block and a close up of the candle itself.
Here is the stocking block with the close up of the stocking. The buttons on the top of the stocking are from Mill Hill beads. And the stocking itself is woven 4mm silk ribbon.
And finally the pointsetta block. The flowers were made using 13mm YLI silk ribbon.
All the silk ribbon work on this quilt I designed myself. The silk ribbon used is all YLI silk ribbon except for the flame on the candle. I believe that is Petals hand dyed silk ribbon. All the fabric in this wall hanging is 100% cotton fabric except one piece. Don't know why that happened but not really important. I actually like to work with cotton fabrics in my crazy quilting. Its just plain easier to work with.
Here is also a cute little tree I made.
It has a cone shaped styrofoam underneath and many yards of green ruffled lace wrapped around the cone pinned in place. I then beaded a long stand of different beads for the garland. This tree was fun and easy to make. However I was never real comfortable with how the top of the tree was finished off but recently I saw a tree very similar to this one on Pintrest and the maker had put a star on the top of their tree.....how clever...why didn't I think of that. Now looking for a star for the top of my tree...lol
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
