A few years ago, I traced some cookie cutters onto some shot cotton the color of gingerbread and appliqued them onto one of my favorite prints.
Then I pieced the rectangles together with a sweet floral.
I added a few embellishments (buttons, cinnamon sticks, ribbon...)
Added a border with rick rack, quilted and bound it...and voila...a holiday wall hanging.
And this is the product of one of the very first quilting classes I ever took, back in the early '80's, done 100% by hand.
Last night I got nudged to the very edge of the comfy chair by the fire.
Hope you are cozy, too!
