Thank You Carla for hosting yet another great Blog Hop. We all need ideas for gifts and I'm sure the list of fellow bloggers are going to share some wonderful ideas.
Being a scrap quilter, I look at all my 'bonus' items sitting right in front of me. We all have those leftover clipped corners, left over bindings, left over pieces of batting and an odd piece of fabric left from a past project. These are treasures for a quick gift.
This little wallhanging was made from all those kinds of special treasures.
I had a guild member gift me her colorful corner cut offs and challenged me to make something with them. I had just finished up my Kaffe quilt and had left overs and bits of the white to use up - so they went into this project.
I made various 'basket' blocks using the block dot triangles for the basket and the colors for various flowers.
And small projects are perfect for practicing your quilting. Whether it be with your walking foot or free motion - you can do it yourself.
Another 'gift' that came from all those 'bonus' items that you have stashed. Pull them out and play - you will be amazed what you can create.
Even those 'that do I do with this' fabrics can be used on a back of a wall hanging. Hey, it was wild, colorful, and flowers - worked for me. Even the binding was a left over and I used every bit of it!!.
