Today I'm sharing some of my favorite gift ideas to make for your friends and family, as well as gifts for quilters that would be welcome at your guild's holiday party swap--or under your own tree.
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.
There is something about crafting the items you use around the house that elevates them from just functional to both fabulous and functional.
I have made bed and lap quilts, holiday table runners, and other large-scale quilted gifts and décor. But more often I make small quilted gifts that come together quickly with the sewing machine and my abundance of fabric scraps.
So, you're hosting a holiday party and you want to personalize your dining room table-and quick! Look no further. In our latest Free e-Book, Handmade Quilts with Quilting Arts: 6 Free Sewing Patterns for Beautiful Handmade Gifts, we offer you six festive quilting and sewing projects to personalize your home or give as gifts this holiday season.
