Wreathed in Christmas Wishes
Topic: Quilting

I made this wreath quilt over a month ago but saved it to show until after the recipient would have opened it. I quavered to make a quilt for this person as she, herself, has been quilting as long as I can remember. I figured that, by making something for the holiday season, she would only have it out for a short time every year. Therefore, not so much time to compare my efforts to her own!

This is actually a wall hanging and smaller than my usual projects, at only 33 inches square. It is made up entirely of half-square triangles and matching squares.


I quilted a bow in the center of the wreath with thread matching the background.


Then I quilted holly leaves in all the spaces and edges of the wreath, thereby rounding its shape.


You can also see that I added 24 round red buttons to serve as holly berries. The red binding ties in with the color of the berries, too.

A very clever wreath--especially adapting the Friendship Star block into a wreath and using the red buttons for berries and integrating the quilting.
