Hark the Herald Angels Sing

I hope your holiday season has been a good one however you celebrate it.  I am sharing with you a small angel piece I made and gifted.  I found an image of old sheet music for "Hark the Herald Angels Sing".  I printed it onto an inkjet fabric sheet from Electric Quilt.  The angel is from an older Jill Kemp pattern.  Simple machine quilting.

Another gift that I made is the snowman doorstop.  The pattern I used is by Birdbrain Designs.  Click here to see the pattern.  The snowman is weighted with a pocket of crushed walnut shells.  I doubt it will be used as a doorstop but the weight does help it to stand upright.  There is also a Santa pattern made in the same way.

I used a pillow ticking type stripe for the back of the snowman.

I also made some basket  fillers from Cheri Saffiote patterns.  I reduced the pattern size.

And last, I made a small wool angel wall hanging.  I used the small angel wall hangings in place of sending a Christmas card.  I enjoyed doing them and think I will make more for the next Christmas season.

Catch-Up After Thanksgiving

My hopes of having a turkey wall hanging finished before Thanksgiving vanished but I have kept working on them.  First up is a quilt top made from Jan Patek's "Blessings" pattern.  The pattern is in her book "When Wild Geese Fly".  The applique is done needle turn method.

The second top completed is from Cheri Payne's "Ever Thankful" pattern which is one of her newer patterns on her website.  Done in wool applique on cotton.

I have two blocks of four done for a third turkey wall hanging.  The design I am using is by Buttermilk Basin.  The pattern is "Give Thanks".  I am making a smaller size version of the pattern.  Wool applique on cotton.

I have been making some Christmas gifts and cannot share those just yet.  Busy, busy, busy!

Michelle have left me some very nice comments but you are a no-reply blogger.  Would love to reply to you.
