Sew and Tell - The Four Seasons Wallhanging with Tutorials

My first Sew & Tell Friday! I'm sew excited to share with everyone.

I made this pattern about a year ago for a swap. My best friend fell in love with it and even made me yo-yo's so I would make her one. Bad friend that I must be....I let it slip into the UFO box for the past few months.

Today I'm happy to say it's done ~ another UFO (unfinished fabric object) has taken flight! It's sew rewarding to be getting UFO's finished.

It finishes 24 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches. Raw edge applique, piecing and foundation pieced borders. There are seed beads added for snow on the winter block.

UPDATE - Full PDF tutorial can be downloaded HERE







You can find more seasonal trees with tutorials HERE on this spring post.

Carol - Welcome to Sew and Tell! This is a great project! Thank you for sharing the pictures and the tutorial. As soon as I learn how to make yo-yo's, this will be on my to-do list. :)
