Christmas Ornaments - Quilt-y


These are the ornaments I made for my siblings and my niece and her hubby. The pictures aren't great, I was taking them in a hurry before I packaged them all up. The pattern called for a generic back with the date (if you wanted to) but I made my own backs. IF you look at them, the backs look just like the fronts but with a block that says 2008 replacing the center.

These were a very easy stitch....the assembly took a little bit of time (about an hour per ornament) but my family seemed to enjoy them. We don't really exchange gifts with one another (we do a gift exchange similar to what you might do at work instead - there are just too many of us) but I am the only crafty one, so I enjoy making a little something for everyone.

Very nice, maybe you should consider doing a tutorial on how to finish these. I bet there would be a lot of interest.

They are beautiful. I can't imagine how long they took to put together.
You have a beautiful family. You have a lot of people in your family.
