Quilted Christmas Ornament

It’s getting close to that time of year – Christmas tree decorating time! And this year I’ve made a Quilted Christmas Ornament for the 2019 Ornament Exchange Link Party. 

The exchange is hosted each year by Erlene from My Pinterventures. She is so organized! She gathers all of our information then assigns us each a partner.  For this year’s exchange my partner is Susan from Crafting A Family. She likes traditional Christmas colors just like I do. So I decided to make her these faux “quilted” ornaments which are red and green. 

Quilted Christmas Ornament

These ornaments actually come on a sewing panel. The one I used is called Yuletide Ornaments by Dreamspinners. You can find them on Ebay. So they look like they are pieced together. It makes for a really quick and easy homemade ornament!

Materials:

Christmas panel with “quilt” squares
Matching buttons
Small piece of batting
Coordinating ribbon
Matching thread

Directions:

Cut out the matching squares from the panel. Then cut out two pieces of batting the size of the squares (one set for each ornament you are making). So you have two squares and two pieces of batting.

Pin the batting to the back side of the square. Using a matching thread, quilt along whichever lines on the panel you like. You can either hand quilt or machine quilt – it doesn’t take very long either way. Repeat for the second side of the ornament.

Cut a 6″ piece of ribbon to use for hanging. Place the ribbon on one corner of the ornament. It will be on the right side of the fabric with the cut edges up against the corner. 

Pin the two pieces of the ornament with right sides together, making sure to catch the ribbon. Sew along the outer edge with a ¼” seam leaving a 2″ opening for turning. 

Clip corners then turn ornament right side out through the opening you left. 

Edge stitch the ornament all the way around making sure to close the opening while you are stitching.

Finally put one button on the front and one button on the back in the center of the ornament making sure you line them up. Sew them onto the ornament tying off your thread under the button.

Repeat for the other ornaments on the panel.

  9. My mom made quilts when I was growing up. Oh how I wished I had made ornaments out of some of the scrap fabrics she had! Imagine making panels like these and then turning them into ornaments – fun keepsakes! I love how your quilted ornaments turned out! They look awesome!

  10. I love how easy, yet beautiful these are! They have such a homespun appeal!

  12. I love these ornaments! They remind me of the quilted potholders we have from my husband’s grandma. So special!

  14. I love these quilted ones as much as the one you made for me in 2017! 😀
