My quilt group always does a gift exchange for our December meeting. Some years, we have a theme. Other years, like this year, we can make whatever strikes our fancy. I decided to make a table topper from a place mat tutorial from a blog called Love by Hand. I wanted to add a link to that blog, but am unable to find it again! I added a bread basket with a matching napkin to make a set. I love how the flying geese turn into trees. And I was able to add some little penguins to it! My scrappy quilter's soul loves how this came together!
At work we have Secret Santa going on right now. We give little gifts to a colleague during the weeks leading up to Christmas, and then something special this last week. I have been working on a candle mat for my Secret Santa person. I got a pretty dark green, pine-scented candle to go with this mini-quilt. I hope she likes it! Just need to finish sewing the binding and it will be ready!
Linking up with one of my favorite places - Quilting is More Fun Than Housework. Cyndy is starting a new link-up featuring scrappy quilts.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
