What materials did you use? 100% cotton quilting fabrics, Heat n Bond Lite, Pellon Select poly batting, Connecting Threads Essential Pro longarm thread. Because the red and green fabrics had Christmas words printed in gold, I searched for a contrasting fabric that also contained flecks of gold. I found a Holiday Inspirations fabric, cream with gold stars which was a perfect backdrop for my Swirly Christmas Tree. I used Heat n Bond Lite for the swirls and stitched them down using Superior Threads Mono Poly monofilament thread and a narrow blind hem stitch. I quilted it with my longarm.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use Heat n Bond Ultra or other non sew-able fusible to eliminate the need to stitch down the shapes.

A unique and creative way to make the Holidays pretty! It's nice to see something different.. There are so many creative people here.
