Words--The Finish!!

The wall hanging is FINISHED!!!!!! I named it Joyful One.

A little quilting on the packages. . .straight lines that followed the print. Remember, I challenged myself to use the pebble design and variations of it for the background quilting. The reason I chose pebbles because the pebbles shape reminded me of big fat snowflakes falling. That polka dot sashing makes me think of snowflakes. I stitched tear drops or paisleys on this package. Instead of making a roundish circle, I made a teardrop shape.
I followed the outline of the snowmen in the  print below. Next, I took the circles and made them swirl.

I quilted a grid on this print. Notice that all the ribbons are stitched similarly. Finally, I varied the paisleys and circles. . .sort of merged them together to get a circle within a circle!

It is easier to see the quilting on the back. On the right, is the paisley background.Then I decided to finish the sashing and border with actual pebbles.

Swirls with the pebbles
Circles within circles

Then it was on to add the label. This is going to be a Christmas gift!

It is GREAT to have a FINISHED project!!!

It is nice having a completed Christmas gift! In past years, I would have had 90% of the gifts finished and sometimes wrapped by now. I seem to procrastinate now!!! I hope the "receiver" will enjoy it too. This elf must get busy on another gift!!! Thank you for your comment, Pat!
