It’s beginning to look a lot like….don’t say it! Christmas! Â I know, it’s Thanksgiving week…. but the online world is always so much farther than reality!
If you are like me though, the family get together is looking long. Â There is a lot to catch up on, watch, eat, chat…. and repeat. Â All of this kind of gets me a little batty and to help out the Holiday jitters I like to haul around a little bit of sewing.
This year you can be ready with your little sewing kit and by the end of the evening you will have a finished project!
Let’s get started, shall we?
Hexagon Christmas Tree Quilt Tutorial
1st- you will need to hop on over here and follow the instructions for the quilt top background. Â Super simple to sew up. Â Have this put together before you get going. That way if you are quick with the hexagon pieces, you can start sewing them down on the background.
2nd- print off one page of Hexagon templates from here you will need size:
5″ HexagonsÂ for the wreath and
1 1/2″ Hexagons for the berries
3rd- Gather your green fabric scraps, thread, needle
4th- Put all your supplies into a sewing kit and you are set!
Steps for making the wreath quilt:Â
Sew 6 large hexagons for the wreathin green fabric. Sew them together in a circle design.
Sew 3 small hexagons for the berries in red.
Pin in place on the background quilt. Â Sew in place- tutorial if you need help.
Quilt and bind your small quilt.
Make sure that your kit gets put into your car. Â One year I totally forgot it and cried all the way to the party because I didn’t have anything to work on! …. don’t do that.
I find that it eases the stress a little bit to be busy with my hands during the day. Â Makes everyone happier.
What kind of projects do you take to parties?
