Handmade Gifts

Posted on January 7th, by Amy in finished project. 8 comments

I am nearly done with my book, and can’t wait to send everything in this week! I realized that I never shared my tiny bit of handmade gifting here – and wanted to, before it’s any later!

These blocks measure 3 1/2″ square, and were paper pieced for precision.  I just love how crisp all the corners are when paper-pieced!

I had this idea for for a zip pouch for a while, and wanted to show off the prints with the subtle background. I also think the size is perfect, for just about anything!  Prints are Clover Sunshine, the background, Essex yarn-dyed in black. I finished up these teacher gifts late the night before the last day of school, added a few extra bits and they were well received.

I made a second batch on Christmas eve, and still have a number of them waiting to be made into pouches. Including one for myself! But picking a favorite is hard…there might be a mini of these in my future too – they are just so fun to make!

More soon -

    These are adorable. I recently made some itty bitty log cabins for Christmas using paper piecing and they turned out so fun!!
    Can’t wait to hear about the upcoming book :-)

    I really like these. Pouches are one of my favourite gifts to make and it is great to find another design to try. I especially love the fabric choice.

    I love your book: “Modern Neutrals”. Looking forward to the new book.

    I wanted to share with you my version of Shifting Sands. I took your layout and created a quilt for my grown daughter for her new apartment.

    I want to share it with you. How would I manage that? Carol in VA Bch
