Today is Friday the 13th…and YOU’RE in luck–good luck, that is…I have a fun ornament project tutorial for you.
First, download the patterns HERE. The download includes two ornaments and The Partridge. We will work on the FMQ for The Partridge next week, but we can make the pattern along with the ornaments today.
Once you have the patterns, cut them out from the paper and glue them onto a piece of cardboard. I use old manila files or cereal boxes.
Trace your patterns onto a quilt sandwich.
To decorate the ornaments, use any of the tutorials found HERE.
TIP: The ornaments look more real if you curve the FMQ patterns around the ornament slightly. Compare the samples below:
Have fun with these! Fill the shapes in with anything–even scribble looks great!
I’m off to bake cookies–biscotti and gingerbread men…
Wouldn’t gingerbread men be cute in FMQ?…maybe I won’t bake…
PS…If you are looking for more color inspiration, I know you will enjoy my daughter’s blog, Color Route Co. HERE Photo JOY!
