A major part of what makes the Oh Christmas Tree wall hanging so beautiful is the hand embroidery used in combination with other embellishments.

In this Quilter's Skill Builders class brought to you by Annie's Creative Studio, quilting expert Nancy Scott demonstrates the three embroidery stitches you'll use to decorate the lovely tree and inscribe the text of the traditional carol around the halo.

In this class, you'll learn how to:
  • Embroider the tree garland with running stitch and lazy daisy stitch.
  • Embroider the text around the halo with the stem stitch.
