UFOM #4 - Almost, Almost Done Christmas Wallhanging




This one is nearly done. And I remember very clearly why I didn't finish it. I couldn't decide what to put in the green panel. If you look closely, I've used scrap from my very first quilt (UFOM #1) for two of the trees.


That and I didn't have enough buttons to finish the trees. Now that is a silly reason, I know, especially because you can pick up buttons so easily!




I remember wanting not only the skin color of the angels to be varied, but the shading on their wings. So I took the doily, and tea-stained them in different shades. Then I was disappointed because I thought the stained wings didn't show up quite as well from the background. It doesn't bother me so much now. Maybe that was the real reason why I didn't finish it.

Now, what to put in that green panel. Mmmmmmm....

lets see there's santas, presents, snowmen, ribbons, bows, Christmas baking, a phrase like "Christmas"... so very many options....

I love the angels -- the fact that they represent such variety is a wonderful testament to inclusivity :-)

Morning,
I love presents and wreaths. Now I am starting to get into the Christmas spirit. I also love the angels.
