Christmas Tree Wall Hanging

I am doing a bunch of Christmas sewing but can’t blog about any of it until I give the gifts! So today I’m showing a wall hanging that I made my sister for Christmas a couple years ago.

The trees are paper pieced and I made up my own simple pattern. I had fun picking out the green fabrics from the quilt store that is within walking distance of my sister’s house – Sew Inspired in Simsbury CT. This is a wonderful shop about 45 mins away from Hartford.

My daughter has been asking me to make her a wall hanging with only 3 trees done vertically.  Maybe this Christmas I’ll get that done for her. Maybe!

Here is this one hanging at my sister’s last Christmas.

Addendum – I did make a smaller version for my daughter for Christmas 2012.

    Beautiful! How big is the smaller hanging you made for your daughter? I’d love to make one for my daughter who lives in a tiny flat and has no room for a tree.

    • Alex – I do not know for sure the size of this wallhanging since I gave it away and didn’t make notes about it. You could easily make one whatever size you think would be best for your daughter’s room. Draw out a tree pattern a size that you like, repeat it as many times as you like and then add borders to make it a pleasing size. Good luck!

I would love for you to leave me a comment about this post.
