Hello…I’ve been having fun sewing some Christmas ornaments! Each year I try my hand at making a few new handmade ornaments. I keep a few and give the others away to friends and family. This is a tradition started by my Grandmother many years ago that I’ve tried to honor!
This year I decided one of my themes would be houses. And I decided that the
little houses from the Mini Dwell pattern would make a perfect ornament! I’m really happy with how they turned out. These ornaments use mostly fabrics from our The Front Porch and Creekside collections with a little bit of Fig Tree mixed in. I’m hoping to make a few more using some traditional bright reds and greens mixed with a little aqua, too!
I’ve also been wanting to make the “A Pear in a Tree” ornament for quite a while and finally had a little time to practice the other day.
I was happy with this one but think a bigger floral fabric might have been a bit cuter…and I definitely need to work a little on my pear shaping skills. But this will be cute on the tree!
These two adorable ornaments were gifts this year in a little swap I participated in with an Instagram friend. Aren’t they beautiful?! I absolutely love them!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Quilting!
