Here's a fun and easy way to enjoy see your artistic friends, enjoy some delicious treats, and get some gift-making done in the process. First, choose easy gifts to make with a group.
This week's free fabric giveaway is a stack of fat quarters called Surrounded by Love by Deb Strain for Moda. I can think of certain new graduates, expectant moms, and brides-to-be who would love quilt gifts made from this fabric.
The new school year starts in a few days, and as soon as I get the kids' supplies in order, I will start thinking about teacher gifts.
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.
