I started this wallhanging last year and ran out of metallic thread, so put it to one side until I could get some more thread. It was after Christmas when I finally got more thread and I really didn't feel like making Christmas themed things after Christmas had been and gone, so put it to one side and completely forgot about it. With the silly season upon us now, I thought it was time to drag it out and complete it.
This was my first attempt at FMQ, so please don't look too hard at the background! I then quilted stars on the gold speckly border. Once I got into the FMQ, I really enjoyed it. Got caught a couple of times losing my train of thought and it got a bit pointy or strange shaped!! I didn't want to quilt over the tree so it probably would be a lot easier if I had picked a quilt to just go wild over without having to worry about avoiding bits of fabric.
I have put little Christmas lights and gold stars over the tree, which don't show up that well in the photo, but actually look really cool on the actual wall hanging.
