Nancy’s Tree Part 2 Dec 2017

Update 11.50pm Wednesday 6th Dec 2017 Part 2 of Nancy’s Xmas Tree wall art and how to make it for beginners.  Happy sewing every one Cheers Glenda


MY day is one mad dash as I try to go faster so I can squeeze some sewing in here and there LOL

3rd day at working on Nancy’s Xmas Tree.  Photo below in the right hand bottom corner you can see where Ive cut in to the fabric for some applique pieces, how am I going to fix this problem?




First I cut this fabric and added iron on fussing to it.


Next I added the dark green Thai silk fabric


So I need 4 triangles to make this work!


I then added a 1/4 inch black bias strip to either side of the coloured fabrics as a frame and it now looks like its part of the quilt not covering up holes LOL


Before and




Here I have some more fabric cut out for applique?????  Plus I want to make the top a little higher so I can work my star????


Added 4inchs extra fabric plus triangle.


Now we have a a Christmas Tree wall quilt coming alive.


Looks a bit like a dancing  Lady Tree now LOL  She is called Nancy!


Monday evening I have been appliqueing more drops down only 9 to go, and I sliced up my star fabric to iron down Nancy’s crown for machine Applique Im having so much fun.


Tuesday. Daylight photo taken as the sun creeps in to the room, it does show the true colours of the fabric up much nicer than night lights.   Only 5 petals to appliqué down now

I have started to machine applqiue the shapes down it is very slow so will not be done in a day LOL  Will let you know how it goes.  Cheers Glenda

      Hi Elaine and thanks for visiting and staying long enough to write. I’ve had soooo much fun designing and making this wall art quilt. If I’m lucky enough I will get it finished before Christmas. Cheers Glenda

    I love your ingenious fix for the background – and it makes the piece look more complex and interesting, so it’s a double win! Beautiful work!

    Dear Glenda

    What a funky Christmas tree. Love those vibrant colours. Special fabrics deserve a special project. Trying to get everything done, practically impossible, but we try.

    Love Glenda what you did to the corners. It really adds to the layout of your quilt. This is really lovely. Glad you are having so much fun.

      Thanks Nancy for dropping in I’m sure having fun making your beautiful Baltic fabrics up in to your name-sake quilt. Amayzing how often problems when solved add to a quilt LOL. Hopefully I will find some time tomorrow to finish the machine appliqué. Hugs.

      Hi Nancy so sorry missed you message some how!!!!!! This is one wee quilt I have had so much fun with as I had soooo many choices of green fabrics to choose from You really did spoil me with all those lovely green fabrics. My pile of neural colours you sent are still sitting on my work table were I see them every day they just glow, I wonder what they will become, I’m still seeing circles and black back ground! but they have not really spoken out loud to me yet, one night I will get up and it will be all go go go LOL Hugs. PS May be I will just start making circles and see what happens, I want those colours to stand alone as they glow.
