It is so easy for me to dread Christmas. There is so much to do. There is so much pressure. I hate decorating the house. And work is ALWAYS extra busy as people rush to get things done before the end of the year.
I wanted to make a hanging for my dining room that was Christmas-y, so that I could go simple red-and-green with the decorating. Actually, “wanted” isn’t the right verb… maybe “felt compelled to”. So something I love, quilting, suddenly became very chore-like. Especially since much precious time was fruitlessly spent trying to find inspiration. I finally landed on making a christmas tree out of a bazillion 1/2-square triangles.
Do you know what makes me even grumpier than the Holidays? 1/2-square triangles. Luckily, I got inspiration just in time from the Tula Pink City Sampler book. I am working on something that I LOVE. Suddenly Christmas doesn’t seem so bad.
These blocks are so fun to make. Quick, unique, and I hope making them all out of green will give a Christmas-y feel, despite all the blooms in the fabric.
