Quilting Memories is the third and last mini kit created for the Digital Scrapbooking Studio site during their New Designer Challenge in September. My grandmother made me a Dresdan Plate quilt as a wedding present over 45 years ago. It is now a beloved heirloom. When I want to be closer to her I wrap myself in this quilt and remember all the wonderful, loving times we had together. This little mini kit could also be used for a Christmas layout. Don’t forget to download the alphabet in the second download.
Quilting Memories alphabet
Santa …. two great images just in time for Christmas card and tag making. These vintage colouring book Santas would also make great embroidery patterns for tea towels to give as a hostess gift. If you quilt but don’t embroider you could applique him onto a towel as well…even a Christmas stocking. Done on a fabric postcard he could be sent as a Christmas greeting too.
Santa checking his list. At least he is laughing so he must like what he sees.
Santa telling us to shhhhh !!! …. I wonder if he just wants the elves to be quiet for two minutes or does he just not want us to make a peep so we don’t wake the kids
I created these Christmas Papers because I wanted something different from eveything traditional. Snow flakes and ornaments are not on these pages, just the suggestion of snow flakes being picked up on the wind. Feel free to use them for your personal art.
This alphabet was published in the McCall’s Christmas Iron On Transfers,Vol-II-1976. It is a smaller size and could be used throughout the year. Mother’s and Father’s day cards using embroidery floss, fancy recipe cards using a permanent marking pen are great ways of using these in mixed media. Little muslin samplers made into personalized ornaments and gift tags would be quick to do and give a personal touch in any season.
As promised here is the last of the alphabet. I love this version of Christmas letters. It is so whimsical and adaptable for so many different venues. The letters could be appliqued using either cottons or wool felt and the rest embroidered on top. They could also be painted onto a wooden ornament or coloured in digitally and printed onto paper to make great tags.
A wonderful Christmas alphabet was published in the Mc’Calls Christmas transfers, Vol II. A Santa stocking with your child’s initials could make a great Christmas tradition. Embroidered onto a quilt block in a table runner, it would make the best hostess gift.
Adding a few beads to the letters would make them extra festive.
Whether you embroider white on red or red on white to give it a red work appeal this alphabet fits the Christmas season.
QRSTUVWXYZ will be posted tomorrow. There is still time to whip up two or three initials for this holiday season.
