Christmas Tree Quilt - Ornaments

Christmas Tree Quilt - Ornaments, take 4...

First Try
I've used my originally purchased silver rope trim to try and secure the mini ornaments to the tree. However, I can't find a needle big enough to handle the cording that won't tear up the material of the quilt.

Second Try
I went out and purchased another type of Silver trim. This kind turned out to be stretchy ( I bought it in the beading section) and if you pull enough, it starts to unravel. Unraveling wont work but then again, I can't find a large eye needle to accommodate them. I did purchase a whole package of large eye needles.

Third Try
OK, third try. I figured, forget this. I got out some metallic thread. Outcome: Way to thin for the process and with just a little nudge, the ornaments broke the thread. Ugh....

Back to the drawing board. Or in my case, you start two unrelated other craft projects.

Thanks for stopping by

  1. Mmmmm, forget the little decorations, arrange the silver stuff and call it quits! Maybe use your silver thread and make little embroidered stars as decorations!
