Yes, it's the last day of March and the last thing on your mind is probably Christmas, but I have a holiday finish to share! One of the projects on my selfish sewing list for this year (and for this quarter of the Finish Along) were some micro-quilted holiday ornaments.
I got the inspiration to make these from Leanne over at the Devoted Quilter. She posted a tutorial during the holidays this past season and I knew that I wanted to make some for next year. While I think they'd make great little gifts, I plan on keeping these for myself. We have a 2nd Christmas tree that will only be decorated with handmade ornaments.
They were very fun to make and great practice with flow quilting which is something that I need to get better at, especially now that I have long arm machine. Making smooth transitions from one motif to another takes practice and this allows me to do it without getting overwhelmed. I'm hoping to make at least 4 more throughout the year to add to our tree by next December.
