Design Wall Monday–December 12, 2016

Oh my, it’s been a while since I posted anything.  What can an I say, I’ve been busy?  Well yes I have been but I’m pretty sure we’ve all been very busy.  Anyway this Monday morning I’m finally sitting down to write a blog post. 

I belong to a group of quilters that exchanges handmade gifts every year.  There are 12 of us but each individual only makes 5 gifts.  We pick Christmas names when we arrive so that you don’t know who’s gift you are going to received.  You bring 5 gifts and you leave with 5 gifts. 

This year I made toiletry/make-up/sewing notions bag. 


They start out as pre-made bags designed by Joy Mangano.  I then take them apart and rebuild them using the “insides” for my new creation.  I think they end up waaaaay cuter than how they come from the store. 


Here are the 5 gifts I received. 


A very cute Halloween table runner by Pat Adair.  Love it!!!!

A very patriotic table runner by Carol Logue.


A perfect wall hanging (or in my case a new front door quilt) made by Nancy Post.

And last but not least………………….


A binding kit  made by my BFF Marilyn Pond. 

Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful gifts.  There were many other great projects made that went to others, but I am delighted with what I received. 

Now it’s time to start thinking about what to make for next year.  Smile
