This month's assignment at made with love (and paper) is timely for Minnesota. It is so cold here, especially this week as I finally get my creation posted.
Our theme for December is Quilted Christmas. Will you play along with us? Our quilted creation is to use contrasting colors, metal/metallic, and a bow or knot.
I am not a quilter. Thank goodness. I found a popular quilted Christmas Tree on the internet. And while it was easy enough to create my pattern using my Pazzles software, it was not so easy for me to assemble for real.
I made the Wonky Christmas Tree by creating trapezoids. Then I drew in the gold trim.
To help layout the tree, I copied and then I welded the trim (image on right). It was still a challenge for me. I think my brain was frozen from our Zero degree high temp today.
I even viewed my pattern in the Wire Frame. At least the final assembly is forgiving enough that I could play with it. I have included it in this post in case you need a little extra help with your assembly process. And I think it's just fine to admit our struggles.
Here are shots of my assembly process:
I used this Wonky Tree to make a card. Finishing it with a little faux stitching on the corners. Happy Christmas.
