Christmas Gifts 2015

Well now that Christmas is over and done with, here are the gifts I was working on (in addition to the doll quilt):
The blocks I had done from the Great Granny sew along got turned into a pillow for my sister, who crochets. Because let's be real, that quilt probably wasn't going to happen. ;) But she loves it and plans on hanging it as a mini quilt, so I'm happy she's happy. :)
 I bought some new quilt tags from Mad Mad Graphics and I used the first one for her gift.
For everyone else, I used the Sweetwater custom blocks (from their First Crush block of the month) to make pillows. I had their names and wedding dates (or dating anniversary) put on the block. I then embroidered the design using their wedding colors and found matching fabric for the pillow. I made it so it fits a 12" pillow form and everyone loved them.
I found these cute twill tapes labels at Joann's and everyone got one on the back, with the exception of mine.
This one belongs to me and it not only has our wedding date (and colors) but I also included our dating anniversary.
Instead of the other tag I used the "PS I love you" tags I found at my local quilt shop.
All in all, everyone was happy with their gifts and I'm happy to be done! ;) I think most quilters and crafters probably feel the same way right about now.
