Create a Quilted Holiday Wall Hanging

Tuesday Tidbits quilting video blog archives

This week, as promised, we are debuting a project that we have been working on for a couple of weeks – A Merry Christmas To You! by Suzn Quilts Designs. This little project has tons of techniques to it: applique, piecing, embroidery… It was just an all-around fun project. You certainly, won’t get bored!

The only thing that will need to be added, if you don’t already have them in your arsenal, is the Tiny Dresden Plate template by Suzn Quilts and the Valdani threads that we discussed are O531 Valdani Perle Cotton Thread: Black Nut and O526 Valdani Perle Cotton Thread: Green Pastures.
