Oh yeah, the “Bells are Ringing“ Today,
I have been having so much fun checking my Christmas fabrics I forgot all about how hot it is here at my house. I decided to make something with bells on, so I dug out some fabrics that I thought would work. (I thought the gold shimmer of these fabrics all went together well.)
Then I drew my bells for the center of my Wall Hanging.
I put my appliqué of the Bells on an 8 inch square. Then machine appliquéd them on using monofilament thread so not to be seen. When finished, I squared it off to a 6 ½” block, centering the bells diagonally.
Next was to make the remaining blocks. Each are 6 ½” square. I used assorted fabrics to set them off. I made a total of 8 of these:
And then 4 of these blocks.
From here I set them all together diagonally with the bells in the middle. I had to do something with the edge triangles. So I came up with these:
For the boarder, I used scraps and put a 1 inch boarder, then I used the gold and made a 1 ½” boarder.
SO HERE IT IS:
"BELLS ARE RINGING” total size is 31” X 32”
