Christmas Trees Wall Hanging

Just in time for the holidays, and as a gift to a special friend, my newest creation, a Christmas Tree wall hanging.

Snow capped trees made of Christmas prints - what a wonderful way to set the mood for the holiday season! 


Christmas Trees by QuiltFabrication


Created just in time for Christmas and the Stitch It and Gift It Blog Hop hosted by Carla at Creatin' In the Sticks, my friend is getting an early present. I'm so pleased with how this turned out, I'll have to stitch up one for myself.

Made with both easy fusible applique and piecing, a beginning quilter would have no problem putting this together. The hard part is choosing from all the fabulous Christmas prints available!

Wondering how I got all those tree pieces to be identical? Check out the Creating Identical Fussy Cut Fusible Pieces tutorial for an easy way to do that.

And can you tell I had fun quilting this?

Full of falling snowflakes and snowballs on a string, it's a modified ruler design from my current Book of the Month feature, Ruler Work Quilting (affiliate link) - see page 111 of the book for circle quilting ideas. This is just one fill idea for the tree background, as there's so many to choose from!

Desiring trees and snowflakes yet? For the rest of the week, the Christmas Tree wall hanging pattern is available at Etsy at an introductory special price. Or maybe you'd like to take a chance to win one of two copies I'm giving away - after all, this is a 'gift it' hop!

  49. Hi Susan! I swear I commented on this yesterday but I sure don't see it. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for linking up today. I love this whole project, especially the trees. They kind of remind me of a soft-serve ice cream cone. It's such a fun and happy looking wall hanging. I do love to applique and I do it often - both hand and machine. ~smile~ Roseanne
