Fold N Stitch Wreath
I bought the fabric and pattern a while ago but today I finished 2 Fold N Stitch Wreaths by Kristine Poor of Poorhouse Quilt Designs. The one on the left is for me! I made the other one for my mom. She chose the purple floral which sort of surprised me! I thought she'd want the quiet colors and tea cup fabric. Either way, I was happy to make it for her!
I'll take you through the process in a very general way.
I had to cut the "applique" fabric and back it with stabilizer.
I backed the front fabric with foam stabilizer.
I cut the backing fabric and cut an X in it.
I sewed a few things together, turned something inside out and then fused over that X. My blocks are now ready to make the wreath!!
Here are the wreaths all put together but the points still have to be sewn together.
Here is my mom's wreath. I used little flower buttons to tack the points together. I also added some buttons to the outer points.
This is my wreath. I used pearls to tack my points. Love it!!
This is such a fun project. If you have the chance, make one! I can see making one for each holiday. Such a nice way to decorate your house!
