A Christmas miracle!

I actually finished a craft!

I started this one a couple weeks before Thanksgiving and only recently finished it.
The various themed fabrics came from Hancock's - all on sale, woot! They were cut into 12 in. by 12 in. squares. I then cut 3 inch strips of solid red fabric. Ironing really helped on this one. I ironed back all edges about .5 inch. This made it a lot easier when I sewed the red strips to the decorative blocks.

I did a three by three pattern. Surprisingly, this took a long time! Then I used flat sheets of batting and attached a solid red piece to the back.

Now it hangs from the banister!

Pretty easy and if you're not craft ADD like me, probably won't take too long.
