Felt Ornaments {52 Quilt Block Pick Up}

We are heading into Holiday zone!  It’s coming… quickly.  Are you ready?  This week I thought I would tackle one pretty simple way to use your orphan quilt blocks.  Felt ornaments.

The whole idea with this project is finding quilt blocks that are cutable.  If you can’t cut it– then don’t use that quilt block, find another one.

The ones that I used weren’t pieced the best. Miss-matched points, maybe bad color combos…whatever the problem is, they won’t show with this project!

Cut out

Place on felt, tucking folded ribbon at top in between- iron securely{the felt is not cut to size! It’s is larger than the ornament right now}

Sew along the edge either with a satin stitch or raw edge applique

Cut felt just past the stitches
