Joy to the World

This 40" X 40" wallhanging is from a Nancy Halvorsen ART TO HEART pattern titled Joy to the World.  It is machine appliqued and quilted.   This was a fun  project to match up and use lots of leftover fabric.  I made the complete project but it could be easily broken down into smaller scenes if desired.

Christmas Placemats

After making 3 placemats for the Guild's recent charity placemat project for Meals on Wheels, I decided this  year I would do placemats for Christmas presents and also make a set for me.  I made my set reversible with two different looks.  The more casual side on top was made with a Charm Pack while the reverse side has a fancy cardinal fabric strip.  The fabrics are more "wintery" than "Christmas" so the placemats can be used after Christmas is over.
