Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

A Christmas Project Before Thanksgiving!

In my quest to knock out the last few UFOs on my Brandon Quilter’s UFO List, not only have I finished a Christmas Project before Christmas, I finished it before Thanksgiving!  My SIL and I both bought this fabric when she was visiting us in July 2018.  I drove down after Thanksgiving to show her how to make flying geese, as it simply wasn’t working over the phone. I think she had her top done by the time I left to go home.  Due to my husbands death the week after I got back, my top languished.

This past April I finally made a decision on how I was going to make my wall hanging (it’s different from my SILs) and I finally figured out how to quilt it.  I found a Christmas Tree decorated in holly on my machine.  I morphed it to fit the space.  For the border, I pulled out a June Tailor wavy ruler and marked the wave on the top and used one of my curved rulers to guide the machine for a straight line.  At the top/bottom of each wave I put in a circle using the smallest hole on the largest swiss cheese ruler by Handi-Quilter. The pieced blocks was done in continuous curves with a “curly-q” in the corner squares and flying geese.  Suzi’s Magic binding finished the wall hanging.

To hang it, I cut square and folded them in half. I have a piece of lattice which I picked up at the hardware store to hold it up.  It measures approximately 16″ x 52″. I used Glide 40wt in Basil.
