Have fun going through your scraps and pulling out cheery fabrics for this project. We love the happy look provided by the candy cane stripe fabric binding and medium scale prints used in the ornament made by designer Messy Jesse. However, these patchwork ornaments will be lovely with whatever fabrics you choose.
The finished ornaments are about 4.5″ in height and width. They’ll look fabulous on a medium to large Christmas tree. Or, hang several together in a grouping on a wall. You could even sew several stars together and make a small wall quilt.
The piecing is simple and won’t take long at all. Sewing together several of these little quilts will be a breeze!
Note that the tutorial refers to “wadding”. That’s the British term for quilt batting.
