Being me, and my moods lately, I remembered I have some patchwork fabrics in my stash. Well, the one I picked happened to have the squares on the diagonal so didn't have to worry about that. Did some diagonally stitching between the patchwork and I double stacked buttons for embellishments. Still have to pick up some cloth ribbon to add and it'll be done.
The backing fabric I chose looks like toys scattered amongst an Xmas tree. Now the tree is reversible. Did a little outline quilting around some of the toys and it looks good.
I'm making them for the DGSs bedrooms.

Hmmmmm buttons didn't show up so well but there are red and green buttons with white pearlized shirt buttons in the centers, sewn on with silver thread.
Oops, used some silver cording as the hanger at the top.This message has been edited. Last edited by: paus4quilts,

That's a festive little tree and you did a great job. I'd rather hang that on my door instead of a wreath.

with all those buttons you could find some small ornaments and hang them on the buttons.. as long as the kids are not too young for smaller items..

God bless you all and may sunshine always be in your lives to brighten your days..

Thank you, San. Thought of that, tried it and because the fabric is so busy I lost the ornaments. What I did find in my craft supplies scrounging was a couple of Mardi Gras necklaces that made perfect garlands so added those.

A really nice little Chr*stmas tree. Might have to give it a try. Nice job and thanks for sharing that site.
