Any mom will tell you: from a salt dough hand-print paperweight to a beautifully stitched lap quilt, gifts from the hand and the heart are the best.

With Mother's Day coming up, I thought I'd share some handmade gift ideas for someone special in your life: mom, aunt, daughter, or friend. And, one lucky commenter will win some free fabric from Moda to use to create his or her quilted gifts.
Mug rugs are easy gifts to make. Add a pretty mug, a canister of tea, or some homemade cookies.
Artistic moms will love a handmade gift of a one-of-a-kind sketchbook cover.
Set a pretty table with stitched napkins pieced from fat quarters. If you're feeling ambitious, add a matching table runner.
If you're looking for gifts for quilters, you can't go wrong with an easy, elegant pincushion. I know I never have enough!
Not much time? How about stitching up some painted hearts for mom?

one of my children.
