Two Free Patterns for Patchwork Tree Ornaments or Gift Tags!
Red and green fabric scraps are put to good use in these charming quilted ornaments.What a great way to use up some of those fabric leftovers! We love the patchwork look and how each ornament is made from different fabric and has it’s own personality.
It’s so much fun to watch these little quilts take shape. Add a piece of jute or ribbon to attach them to gifts for that personal touch. They can also be hung from the Christmas tree.
Amy Sharp at Diary of a Quilter provides tutorials for two ornament styles. The straight sided tree in the center is made from the blocks used in her “Patchwork Forest Quilt.”
The second ornament, for the pieced tree, has a wonderful quirky charm. Quilt it or not, as you prefer (the ornament on the left is quilted, the one on the right is not). While Amy quilted by hand, they’d be equally charming with a bit of machine stitching.
The ornaments sew up so quickly that you can easily make several in a few hours.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
