I just finished this Ornament

http://hangingonbyaneedleandthread.blogspot.com/2009/12/quilted-christmas-ornament.html
I made this ornament last night from the instructions that I got at this you tube tutorial. It is so easy and fun to make to. It is a no sew project. I would suggest using a lighter weight fabric then I used. I used velvet in the center and a brocade on the outside. It didn't lay as nice as the one on the tutorial but I thing it looks pretty nice anyway. I added a crystal to hang off the bottom and added a hanger on top.
This is another one that I did today. Its done with some lighter weight fabric but it still hasn't turned out as nice as I would like it to. I just can't seem to get that perfect 3"x3" square cut perfect. I think I am going to have to invest in a rotary cutter and cutting pad.

Oh nice Jan, I've seen these before and thought that they must be super difficult to make, who knew? Off to check out the tutorial, thanks for the link! Deb

Jan: I did these a bunch of years ago. I loved them then and everyone I gave could not figure how I did them. Great gift. Anyway, I had lost my pattern instructions, more like can't find them in my messy sewing room. Glad you found them, I printed them off and will make some this weekend. I have a new batch of people at work to give to.

hope you t-day was great and I have not even thought about Christmas decorations yet. UGH!!
