Christmas Tree Quilt - Next Up

The Fall "Amish Pumpkin" quilt was completed envelop style and finished by sewing down the applique with invisible thread. I have already replaced the Halloween quilt on the front door with the Fall wall hanging. Now it's time to move on to finishing the Christmas Tree Quilt.

Christmas Tree Quilt

The last status of the Christmas Tree Quilt was that I finished piecing the top. This wall hanging is too large for the front door so I may do a wreath or something for the front door. However, I do want to finish this quilt to hang in the house.

Things to finish on this quilt...

1. I think I'm going to finish this quilt envelope style. Place the front and back right sides together and stitch all around the quilt except for a few inches and then turn the quilt right sides out.

2. I don't think I am going to add a border to it since it so large already.

3. I will however be adding embellishments to make it look as though the tree is decorated. I'm leaning towards hot fix rhinestones to look like colored bulbs.

We'll see.....Stay tuned and thanks for stopping by
