I'm finally done! I love this Christmas wall hanging! So bright! Cheery and RED, my favorite color! I machined quilted it using swirls of wind and snow reminding me of my IL winters.
Finding fabric that I liked was more of a chore then I thought that it should have been. But now I know of a couple more fabric stores to go to. I embroidered the santa and trees in a brighter red then normal redwork is done. Then came upon fabric at a far away shop, without the pattern notes on me, I bought 1/2 yd of each fabric. Which was a good thing because when I pieced together the log cabin the directions were wrong?! (Has this ever happened to any of you?? Not to me, until now) I thought that I cut, pieced, sewed wrong, so I redid them again, only to find out that yes the directions were WRONG. After swearing and complaining to my sister (thanks for listening Michelle) I figured out the math (yuck) and ended up trimming to fit the santa circle. So without further a due here is my very much loved Christmas wall hanging (done just before mom and dad come :)
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
