Noel Wall Hanging

I always swore I would never make a wall hanging. Then Quilt Tree offered a Stained Glass Workshop. I’ve always thought the technique was cool & wanted to learn it since I was 11 or 12. Well they offered this class in between the Never Ending Double Wedding Ring. I knew I’d never be able to make a full sized stained glass quilt, so it was either a table runner or a wall hanging. Brenda Henning, the queen of stained glass instruction, has some wonderful books out. While perusing them in the quilt shop, I found her “The Exquisite Table” book. I used Hoffman’s Christmas line for the fabrics, hoping that the batiks would make it less “cutesy.” The letters are green while the borders are a green & red & gold holly. Clover gold quick tape bias was used for the fancy stained glass effect. I’m happy with the results. It didn’t take long at all- had the class not been spread out over 2 weeks, I could have easily done this in a weekend.
