Christmas Project

I'm making these Ornaments, they are fairly big, 15". So, they make good place mats, or the can be sewn together to make a wall hanging or table runner. I've got 6 made so far, I'm not sure I like some of the fabric choices, but I try. A quilting friend jbk65 from the HGTV message board board gave me a link to the pattern. Hers turned out so pretty I had to give them a try. I'm making these for the family. Do you think they will like them? I haven't got these sewn together yet I'm waitng until I have more finished to see what looks best together. You can click for a close up view . I appreciate any suggestions as I'm not too good at choose fabrics that look good together.

  1. Very cute. I made an asian table runner with this pattern. You just add the small top to the bottom and you have a chinese lantern.

    They are great just the way they are but I might have used solid greens, blues & reds to break up the busy fabric, like you did with top & bottom ones in the top photo.

  3. I think the fabric looks so cute together...will be a nice table runner. I was thinking they would look good as a candle mat with a nice big candle in the center. Love your last two quilts, they will be beautiful gifts.

  5. Great idea! I think as ornaments they look great. Of course you would have to have a big tree for them. And what's this about picking fabric! That's me , not you!
