The first step is to cut off the instructions, but save them for future reference.
I selected this fabric for the backside of my garland pieces.
So, I layered the panel over batting (I like to use Warm and Natural) and the backing fabric.
I did some free motion quilting over the softies and garland pieces on my machine. I wasn’t too concerned about the background area, but focused on the circles.
Here is my finished panel....
I used pinking shears to cut out the circles for the garland.
I then took two yards of jumbo brown ric rac and placed the garland circles in a pleasing arrangement. I sewed them in place with a zigzag stitch.
In this picture you can see both the fronts and backs of the garland.
Here is the garland all hung up and ready for holiday decorating! Enjoy!
