Don’t you just love getting packages in the post? I mean, really, what’s not to like? …Something in the mail that is NOT a bill, something that’s sometimes unexpected, it’s all good! I was excited to receive one from Margaret of Mainely Quilts of Love the other day…lovingly wrapped,
It was my Girlish Charm quilt which she quilted for me on her long arm. It has a gorgeous (not that you’d know it by my horrible photos…ugh!) allover feather design…
Lovely, isn’t it! And a perfect compliment to all the Amy Butler fabrics.
The back is pieced as well, in leftover Amy B. Charm fabrics and Kona Cotton:
This quilt is huge, over 100″ square, which makes it a) Very heavy and, b) Too large to lay out flat anywhere in my new home for photography. If I could find a clean snow bank outside, I guess I could get shots of it outdoors. Maybe this weekend. I still have to bind it, anyways, so more photos after that is done!
I’ve been a busy beaver preparing small handmade items for the holidays…finished these up last night…
The pattern for these cute reusable gift bags, AND the scone recipe is called “My Other Kitchen” by Vanilla House Designs, and it came from here. Super easy, it’s a “green” gift, and the scones are yummy! That’s a little pocket at the front of the bag to add a gift card, wooden spoon, candy cane, etc., to dress up your package. Clever!
Are you scrambling to finish up any last minute handmade gifts?
