January of 2012 I was busy making gifts for friends. My birthday is December 24, my s-i-l on January 22, our three friends in February. We get together to quilt when we can, though I have been on hiatus at times while working on grad school.
I let them decide who got which one, but it ended up being pretty much what I predicted, which friend would pick which one.
Inside pages are made of wool felt, to hold those needles and pins; pockets of coordinating/contrasting hand-dyed fabrics keep smaller scissors, and other essentials.
One of my favorite fabrics, Bolero, I think it's called.
These batik pinwheels came from a UFO tablerunner I got at a quilt store "garage sale" for $2. I unsewed, then resewed into these:
The Asian print has some shiny gold in it. I love it. The red and gold on the bottom of this pic is the one I wanted, and the one that was left for me. The two blocks came from a local church garage sale.
Now I have to think of a gift for my four friends for this winter!
