Recently I needed a couple of quick projects for gifts ... one for a baby boy and a quick wedding gift.
Here is the baby quilt with the fun fabrics. It was very quick to sew. I made it in a few hours.
I used the polka dots on the back and stripped pieced the binding with leftover fabrics. Inexpensive to make! I had the batting so I just had to buy a few fabrics. The mother loved it for her little one :)
I also needed a quick wedding gift for a friend so I went to Belk (a local dept store here in the South) and purchased handtowels. I embroidered a "B" for the brides last name. Most ladies here in the South love something monogramed! It's a Southern thing :) The simples towels were a hit with the bride and groom.
These projects goes to show you that you don't have to spend a ton of money on gifts that people will love. I actually got the handtowels on sale and for the babies quilt most of the supplies I had in my sewing room.
I am joining up with Susan at Blackberry Creek for her weekly UFO update. Thank you Susan for hosting this weekly party!
We have been very busy around here redoing a room and it has been very time consuming. My dining room is overflowing with stuff from the room that is getting a makeover. I will be glad when our project is done and I can show pics!
Thank you for stopping in!
