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*

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

  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.
