NLCQG Ornament of the Month 2023

This project is planned for 2023, starting in January, ending in October, with the collecting the ornaments in November for the tree decoration. The finished ornaments will be used to decorate a Christmas tree at the Antioch Kringle’s Christmas Village as an outreach endeavor, a way to increase the guild’s publicity. We expect to save the collection of ornaments to
decorate a tree for many years to come. The enclosed link has more information about the total venue:

September: The ornaments for September are a couple of adorable Santa Clauses. Attached are links to two versions, a log cabin and a paper pieced (or strip sewn) version. The Log cabin version is on Pinterest, so you can go to this site and look for the YouTube demo. Link here and  Other Link here

August is a cute and easy Swedish heart. This version is a no sew simple weaving project. You can use felt, or stabilize some of your scraps. An alternative heart can also be a scrap buster, creating patchwork scraps cut to a heart shape and either hand stitched or sewn by machine and lightly stuffed. Hint: Use a cookie cutter as a pattern. (this is a Missouri Star video)
