About this Quilt

Finished Blocks : 5½˝ x 5½˝

Rating : Easy

Designed By : Jen Daly

This quick easy Christmas door hanger project is the perfect way to bring a little holiday joy to every room in your house without too much work. A little bit of embroidery, a little bit of appliqué, bind it up and you’re done! Or you can make a little decorative pillow using the same techniques—how you spread holiday cheer is up to you!

The projects—door hanger or pillow—are made almost entirely by hand. Even if you’re not much of a handworker, these are simple, fun projects to make and you can get them done in a day or less. The combination of basic backstitch and applique is a really sweet, homey décor piece that is nice to keep or give as a gift.

The appliqué motifs are cute, timeless and easy to incorporate into many other holiday projects as a personal touch. Jen made the door hanger with felted wool applique, which adds a nice dimension. Our pattern describes how to felt wool if you’d like to try it. The pillow has standard fused raw-edge appliqué for a more scrappy look.
