Quilt as you go Scrappy Ornaments Tutorial

Quilt as you go Scrappy Ornaments Tutorial

Today is a surprise– Christmas in July!!!  I am teaming up with a few awesome others to bring you some fantastic easy, quick, and super cute ornaments!

For my ornament, I thought I would use a previous felt ornament template….but with a new twist.  Using the quilt as you go technique, you can sew these up with all your tiny little fabric scrap bits.  No piece is too small for this.  In fact, the ornaments will look scrappier if you use smaller pieces!

5)  Flip the fabric and iron- You can do some quilting right now if you’d like.  I did 1/4″ from the seam and again in the center of the strip.
