My Christmas basket ornaments



The last few months, I was very busy putting these Christmas basket ornaments together. They are from a magazine called 'For the Love of Quilting' by Fons and Porter. I do a 'Christmas in July' project each year for my quilt group. This was the project we did this July and I decided they would be fun to use for the ornament exchange I did with one of my Yahoo lists. All the ornaments have been sent out and since I just got mine, I know it is okay to share the ones I made with you.

These pentagon shapes are covered with fabric and then hand sewn together. I added small glass beads to the top edge along with a wired gold ribbon to hang them on the tree. The baskets are filled with a single red rose.

This is one of the prettiest ornaments I have ever seen! Your workmanship is exquisite as always Heidi. Are these hard to make?
