Brighten your Home – Easy Quilting Decor Projects

Admit it, there comes a time in every quilter’s journey where they have to step back and realize they have too many quilts. Fortunately for the quilting community as a whole, quilters are incredibly generous people who give with love and share their talents with friends and family, wrapping them in the warmth of their craft. Sometimes though it’s nice to make something for yourself, stitch in a little of your own creativity and create something that is positively and uniquely you.

Quilting doesn’t have to be limited to just quilts. There is a world of options available that require no more skill than what you have already mastered in your traditional quilts. If you’re anything like us though, you want to be surrounded by quilts all day, every day! So thread your sewing machines and get ready to decorate with these fabulous and simple DIY Home Decor Quilting Projects:

What’s your favorite piece of quilting home decor?

Embroidery…and a little decorating

‘White Christmas tree, white Christmas tree….how lovely are your branches.”

Well, if you were paying attention, I mentioned in my last post that we had some snow days to spend together and that I still hadn’t decorated yet….  Here is what we came up with.  This year we have a WHITE Christmas tree.  ( i got it on CLEARANCE after Christmas last year)  So lucky.  Anyway, I have been dying to make a pom-pom garland FOREVER, and finally bought all the pom-pom’s I could find.  (no, really.  It’s true)   Yesterday, my girls and I watched a movie and strung those bright (awesome – cute-can you tell I’m excited) pom-pom’s together.  We all had a blast and it was fairly easy.  (7 year old stuck herself a time or two with a needle.  Only a few tears, and we were done.)    So, today we decorated the tree in non-breakable ornaments, aka 2 year old proof.

I used to decorate anyway, and be all diligent about keeping the little hands off the tree….Not this year.  It is so much less stress….I don’t fret one bit about the ornaments being thrown across the room, during a make believe baseball game.  I am happy with it, and really glad that I am not constantly in fear.

After all that I figured I better get started on my embroidery project…..this one is so cute.  So, tedious…..but so worth it!  (by tedious, I mean lots of small intricate details.  But that is what makes it so charming)

Here is a peak:

How cute are those presents? And cakes?

Believe me.  It is darling.  But, it is gonna take me a while.  I will show you when it’s all finished.  I promise.

So, what is keeping you busy this week?  Any one else been stuck at home?  🙂  Heheeh….really I have enjoyed it.  The kids and I are having a great time.   I think cookie baking is next on the list.  Yes, baking and decorating!  Mmmm…and fudge.  Let’s make fudge.

Have a great day.
