2012 Ornament Idea

I've been thinking about what ornament I will make this year. As usual, I have several ideas but this is the only one I've actually made up a sample of.

The stitched part is 3.5" square. I don't think I'll do heart shapes on all of them. It was just a simple shape I used to try out my idea.

This ornament is my own design but I used the construction techniques found in the book Fanciful Stitches Colorful Quilts by Laura Wasilowski.

Laura has a really fun blog, full of inspiration. If you haven't, you should check it out! Clicking on her name above the photo will take you there.

Love your ornament. I have that book but have never tried anything in it. Now I'm getting it out and really reading it. Thanks for sharing.

Very cute! I have some English Paper Piecing ornaments that Shelly gave me. I can send you one if you want!
