I thought Chris [who runs the Outreach portion of the guild]
could use a few simple generic holiday themed quilt tops.
I pulled my stash of odds and ends and made up 3 small
quilts for the ladies in Outreach to finish.
The center of this quilt was done 2 years ago and it was
time to get out of my sewing room. While those little 2-1/2"
squares are not perfectly sewn together it's good enough for a
child to enjoy and play on. Outreach will finish it and pass on.
3 Holiday & 1 Generic Lap Quilt
The use of more holiday odds and ends.
8 Baby Bibs
Two each of the same fabric/style/size.
Center of the bids have different fancy stitching.

Chris put out a request to guild members to make a few
items to donate to a local school's holiday bazaar
in December. I rose to that challenge and made
a bunch of cute items that I felt would sell.
3 Gnome Pillows
6 Terrier Dogs
13 Sail Boats
Since we live in a nautical area I thought little sail boats
would be a big hit. These are so cute and easy to make.
8 Little Fish
Who doesn't love Christmas bunnies?
I made two non-holiday themed bunnies just in case
someone didn't want a holiday bunny. I need to get
more bunny tails on my next visit to Hobby Lobby.
I had a lot of fun making all this stuff. It's a nice break from
working on lap quilts but now I'm ready to start the log
cabin block kit I purchased from Jordon Fabric's.
The next project is to work on a large Christmas quilt that
needs to be quilted. I plan on taking this with us to the
Outer Banks in November so I can hand sew on the binding.
While I normally don't hand sew bindings this is a nice way
to have some sewing time while on vacation without
dragging my big heavy sewing machine.
