I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
Clockwise from right:
- Quilt panel
- Button-hole foot
- Christmas lights
- Quilting cotton
- Polka dot print
The print is a large Christmas tree, decorated with teddies, cats, dolls and what-not. The plan is to make a quilt and add 30 machined buttonholes across the tree. The lights can then be fed through the button-holes, to "decorate" the tree (an idea borrowed from an example at our local Spotlight store).
The kids are excited about the wall hanging. They helped choose the red backing and the polka dot binding. I drew the line when they tried to select the batting ... but then again they know about as much as I do about quilting (zero).
Mr HB has been watching proceedings from afar. He seems oblivious to the fact that there could be significant furniture moves needed to create a Christmas feature wall.
But as I make no secret of how slow my craft is, the furniture is probably the least of the worries. I am either starting this project quite early or very, very late. Mr HB might be safe until Christmas 2010.
