Have you seen a UFO fly by?

The UFOs are flying around here as yet another old project has been completed. I was able to get another one finished yesterday bringing me to 3 UFOs completed in August. Big smiles all around!

Some time ago, I had admired some pillows that a quilting friend had made. They were made from a pretty woven fabric. She had some left and gave it to me. I could also make pillows but decided to do something unusual with the shapes of the various motifs. I cut them out in various shapes...

Sewed them (this was last year but they did not get farther than sewing them together) and stuffed them...

Then thread a long piece of jute through them with beads between the pillows to create my Alpine Christmas hanger...

Maybe it is having the name Heidi but I love the country mountain look. *grins*



  1. That is just too cute. What a clever elf you are.
    You come up with the best ideas ever. Neat, neat, neat.
    Love you, Mom

  2. What a great idea. I love anything red and white. I also love blue and white.

  3. Ooh that's gorgeous Heidi! Very festive!

  4. It turned out gorgeous!! And let's face it: it's another finish :-) But this one hadn't had the time to become an UFO...
    Love it!

  5. Well done on completing those UFO's that brilliant,it looks super.

  6. was very much a UFO since the pillows sat unstuffed for an amount of time that I do not want to

  7. What a great project! I love what you did with this. It reminds me of a bell pull. Take care!

  8. O, are they flying around your house too?? LOL
    I'm catching them one by one, and my pile is reduced to only 1 left...!(well, euh, if I have to count 'the centennial sampler' too, there are 2 But..., But,.. that's not even a quilt top yet)
    And about 6 or 7 WIP's, so I'm a happy girl.
    I love your doorhanger. Great finish!
    See you wednesday.

  9. Such a lovely idea Heidi thanks for sharing.

    Hope you are keeping well.

    Love Hazel c (uk)
