{ more Christmas gifts }

I can finally share the rest of the gifts I made it for Christmas presents! Everything is with their intended owner!

This is my Pinwheel Sampler Quilt. I started it in…oh February 2010…and finished it in December 2010!

I made it fully intending to gift it at our Heider Family Christmas Gift Exchange.

I even made it in fabric I didn’t think I’d love (Make Life… by Sweetwater).

I pieced the top together…Loved it. I had it quilted at the Village Quiltworks. I may have had to leave my right arm there as payment, but I LOVE IT!! The backing fabric is all paisleys and the quilting is done in paisleys. LOVE. Love. LOVE.

I learned a lot by piecing this quilt. It’s all pinwheels – which I learned I DON’T love – but I did it!! I spent many many hours with this quilt….it was really hard to wrap it up and not know who it was going home with. I made all the Koch’s pinky promise that they would fight their tails off for it.

It got passed around a lot in the game, but finally Grandma got it and no one wanted to be mean and steal it from her – so she got it! YAY! And – she said it could stay at our house! YAY! Whew!

This is my favorite block.

I made this little snuggly quilt for Kamryn. It is really really soft on the back – perfect for snuggling!

It’s the Get Framed Pattern from Moda Bake Shop and Bliss fabric by Thimble Blossoms.

Last, but not least, I made this camera strap cover for my friend Amy. It may have been one of the hardest things I’ve ever made! I used this Camera Strap Cover Tutorial by Amanda of Fonts for Peas.

I had to guess on the length and width, but Amy says it fits perfectly! YAY!
I used fabric leftover from Melissa’s Birdie Sling bag – so they’re sorta matching!

And now – done with the Christmas gifts – onto the baby gifts! The fun never ends around here!
