I am slowly filling that Christmas Gift Box by joining in with the Pledge to make handmade gifts throughtout the year. And being we are getting closer, maybe it is time for you to start thinking about joining in.
This month I used Sherri's pattern for A Month of Simple Small Projects with A Quilting Life. She offered a star pattern for pot holders and strip piecing for a table runner. But I have been admiring some very pretty kitchen towels made by a certain blogger, so I used the strips to decor some towels for a nice pressie set.
I used charms from 'Tried & True' by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex - quartered them to have a lot of fun 2.5" squares to play with. Some scrap plaids from the bucket for the towel tops and potholder binding.
You can join in any month and please go visit SewCalGal to get some Christmas project inspiration.
