I have made my eight children Christmas ornaments for many years. I don't remember when I started, but then I don't remember most things.
When we were at the quilt show last weekend, my husband asked what I was doing for the kids' ornaments this year. I told him I had purchased some laser-cut wooden stars. I was going to paint them with glitter gold paint and be finished with it. He inferred that that wasn't bringing my "A" game. Soon thereafter we saw some paper-pieced ornament patterns at the show. They finish 3-1/2" square.
I made this one tonight. I did a single-fold binding, and I love the way it looks. I hand-sewed the ends of the binding together, as getting such a small piece under my sewing machine foot would've taken a miracle.
