The last couple Christmases, I had wished that I had another Christmas wall hanging that I could hang on my large wall. Well, I found one in this Quiltmania magazine from November/December 2015 that I got on sale at my LQS (marked down to $7).
Here's the wall hanging, Merry Trails, that I have started making for this coming December! When I first saw it, I thought it was really cute - the vintage car towing a trailer - since we loved camping. After thinking about it for several months and looking at it again, I decided that it wouldn't really be that hard to make! It's designed by Barbara Cherniwchan for Coach House Designs.
So, I thought, why not get it done early! Here is the base for the appliqué. I made the "snowball" blocks out of snowflake fabric pieces that I bought from my LQS's "scrap chest." In fact most of the Christmas tree fabrics are from their scrap chest also.
So, now I'm ready to start with the appliqué, for which I plan to use iron on backing and then machine stitch down. It will finish at 42" x 54" so is a fairly good size for a large wall.
