Handmade gifts

While at our quilt retreat my girlfriends and I exchanged Christmas presents. Its wonderful to receive hand-made gifts and quilters are soooo good at it.

Martha bought us all a packet of 5" charm squares in new funky Christmas colors and patterns. A little bit of a oriental look to the fabric. I added a yard of matching fabric for the liner and handle and made mine into this tote bag. It's bright and cheery and fun for the holiday season.

Judy made everyone a felt pin cushion.

Mary made quilted candle mats that also could be used for hot food mats.

Lillian made wallets and a check book covers.

This is the inside of the wallet with zipper and vinyl pockets.
