The one thing that's consistent from year to year is that there is always a tree design. Recently, there's also always been a design using Paula Nadelstern fabrics. This year I combined the two. The dot fabrics are from her 2023 line that was released earlier this year. The others are from the 2024 line that will be available in February.
I made this set last because I knew that they would be the easiest to cut out and stitch.The tree fabrics are from the same print that will be available in 3 colorways. I decided to go bright with these are use all 3 colors that aren't really Christmassy.
When I planned these cards I was certain that I wanted to outline the trees with black thread. Boy was that a bad idea! I quickly changed my plans to outline the trees in colors to match each tree. I added crystals to the top of each tree for just a touch of bling.
I made 25 of these cards!
Here are 81 cards ready to address this weekend! I also have to quilt a quilt for my friend, Kim and dyed some gifts for friends. Today is a sewing day with my quilt club so I'm going to try to get 2 veterans quilts bound. I have 2 more veterans quilts to quilt but I don't know if I can get those done by Tuesday for the club meeting. It's going to be a busy weekend!
