I almost forgot to tell you about the pillow I made last week!
I was working on cutting my triangles for the Triangle QAL. Once they were cut I was being faithful to busting my scraps and ended up with a bunch of 2 1/2" squares.
This Denyse Schmidt fabric is so great I wanted to keep doing something
with it. And then I remembered that I wanted to make a gift, so I layed
out those squares and ended up with a Plus Pillow.
The pillow was gifted to Sarah at the April meeting of the MMQG. Sarah was a guest speaker who enlightened us to the opportunities around Social Media. Did you know that e-mail is becoming obsolete and that most people use You Tube as their main search engine? Who knew!!
When Sarah and I were planning to have her come to the meeting I knew that I wanted to give her something for coming. Our Guild has no money to speak of yet, but I was also thinking that as a Guild we are ultimately Makers. So I made her something. I think she was OK with it :)
Have you made any handmade gifts lately? Would love to hear about them!
Thanks for dropping in.
This week I am going to link up with My Quilt Infatuation, Pretty Bobbins and TGIFF!

Love that pattern! Also love the backing for the pillow. I finished a quilt that was a gift and made a knitting needle case as a gift to my sister. Always makes me feel good when you see the appreciation in someone's face when they receive a quilted gift.ReplyDelete
