Christmas in July Blog Hop

Here we are in July and somehow I found myself with two Christmas in July celebrations within days of each other. Saturday was spend with the Jubilee Quilters for their marathon Christmas In July celebrations. Today is our first day of the Christmas in July Blog Hop hosted by Carol from Just let me quilt.
Here is the schedule, so you can follow along.

Cynthia's Creating Ark- You are here

July 27

 I have to admit I was still working on my project on Saturday as I had a restart on my project. The original project which is all cut ready to sew didn't get to the sewing machine. So that project will get put aside to be used for a project later this year. The benefits of celebrating Christmas twice a year.       

So what did I make for this Blog hop. When it comes to Christmas I love Christmas trees and you all know how much I love stars. Now what happens when you mix trees and stars together, you end up with a Christmas Star tree.

With the tree stitched in place and added my borders for my wallhanging. Cut my backing fabric you can just see it sticking out in the picture below, than run into a wall and ran out of time to finish my wall hanging off.



But at least you can see where I am going with this and I will finish it later this week and share with everyone.
Don't forget to visit everyone and enjoy their blog post because I know there is lots of great projects to see.
Until Next Time
Keep Stitching

Hi Cynthia! I was still working on my project on Saturday as well - there might have even been some Sunday picture taking going on. HAHA! I love your star tree! I am a huge fan of star, and have never thought to combine them into a tree shape. I look forward to seeing it complete! Happy Monday! ~smile~ Roseanne

The wall hanging is going to be neat. I was impressed with the fussy-cutting you did on the star pieces - perfect.

I adore stars, too. I like the star tree and the wall hanging is on the road to being fantastic. I am anxious to see the project finished. Thanks for hopping and sharing.

That is a wonderfully designed tree. Curious about the red on the stars, is that a separate piece of red fabric or is it a striped Christmas fabric fussy cut. Either way it makes for wonderful Christmas in July. Looking forward to the finished piece.

Marian said...

I love Christmas trees, so it was quite fun to see your star tree, very cool and great design especially with the fussy cut stripes.

Cindy Staub said...

I love the project that you are working on, the stars are awesome. I was scrambling the day before my posting, sewing my ornaments together and adding the fringe...
