What materials did you use? Cotton fabric, metallic fabrics, sequins, beads, braid, thin cotton wadding, buttons etc.

What are you most proud of? Being able to give something original and unique to my best friends and my family that they can keep from year to year (if they want to). It's difficult to know when to stop when embellishing with beads, sequins, braid etc, and I have to try not to go over the top, although I don't really suppose it would matter much if I did "gild the lily" too much - they are festive decorations, after all! I was particularly pleased to find some ribbon in a cake decoration shop with "Merry Christmas" printed on it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Let your imagination run riot. I intend to abandon Christmas trees now, and go on to to make other pictures - perhaps snowmen, bells, candles - there's no limit to what can be done. After last Christmas a friend's son loved the Christmas one I made for his Mum and asked me to make one of these little quilts with an owl on it - a photo of it is among my projects.

Thank you - they're so easy and quick to make. I haven't started this year's yet because I'm so embroiled in quilting the BOM. Will have to abandon that for a bit, I think, or it'll be New Year and too late before I know it!

Yeah I Know what u mean. We left home for Arizona - brought my machine and the quilt BOM and I enrolled in Leah Day's class. Still not done the BOM's yet. I also have last year's Christmas Quilt I am finishing and my Fairy of Fire which is almost done. No Christmas Trees here this year - left them all in Alberta.

Never mind - I expect you'll find time before the next Christmas comes around. Is it warm in Arizona now?

It is 80 degrees here this week - very nice and HOT by the pool!

Oh - I'm glad you can't see me - I've just turned lime green with envy! I'm sitting here under a quilt, in front of the TV, with a hot water bottle behind me! The joys of an English Autumn!

What a great idea. Many thanks for sharing. I think I will try this for next Christmas. Can you believe I am already planning for next year.

They're very easy and quick to make - and you can embellish them as much (or as little) as you like. Having said that, I haven't found the time to do much more this year, so will start a lot earlier next year. I blame the BOM course!

Lovely! A great idea. Much better then the boring postcards or mails

Thank you - they are such fun to do! I didn't get around to making any new ones last Christmas (2012) but I intend to make lots for Christmas this year. It's a long way off, so I will have no excuse for not starting early!
