As our good friends at Monty Python's Flying Circus used to say, "and now for something completely different!" I've had a series of life-sized wall hangings bopping around in my head for months now, and finally managed to birth the first one (s). These giant (6 ft. tall) toy soldiers add a fun, whimsical touch to our Christmas decorating. Simple to make for even a beginner quilter, the pattern has straight seams, rotary cut pieces, and fused appliqué features. These wall-hangings are intended for indoor use, protecting doorways, or standing guard beside the presents under your Christmas tree.
I think these toy soldiers are so fun, and I can't wait to hang them this Christmas. As with most things simple, it took a lot of thinking and complicated maneuvering to make it so. It was important to design this big fellow in such a way that a full sized pattern wouldn't take 100 sheets taped together when printed. And it doesn't.
