I've only ever made Christmas quilty presents for my Mum and I've had to plan ahead by months as I procrastinate too much and can't keep to one project at a time.

I've since given up as she can only have so many pot holders and the last one I made for her she gave away!

Love the fish fabric.

Rosa Robichaud said...

Oooooh.... fabric.....

I LOVE fabric!!!!

*VBG*

I LOVE giving home made gifts to my family.... and I'm impatient, PLUS we now draw names, for Christmas gifts.

Sooooo, most times, they get my homemade gift throughout the year. *grin*

Makes for a year long birthday or Christmas celebration!

Tks for adding my name in your virtual hat!

Well, my family is religiously intermarried, so Christmas is not observed across the board - my husband and daughter and I are Jewish, but my mother's family are Christian. My mother left two Christmas quilts unfinished when she passed away in 2008. I finished one of them for her husband so he could have it the first Christmas he was alone. I am finishing the second one now for her sister, my aunt, and will give it to her when we go to Texas for American Thanksgiving. I am so happy to be able to do it - I know it is very meaningful for those left behind, just as I treasure the no-Christmas quilts she left.

Rafael's Mum said...

Every year, I intend making presents.. every year something else happens so I run out of time.. One of these christmases I will!

Nancy said...

I love to make homemade gifts. I only wish I had more time or found a better way to manage my time.

A quilt/handmade gift is always one that comes from the heart: pieced together with love and stitched with prayer.

autumnesf said...

I'm fairly new to quilting but I love making quilts for Christmas gifts. I made three for this year and am about to start on number four. I'd love to get a quilt myself since all the ones I've made have been gifts!

Bonnie said...

I have always made things using fabrics as handmade gifts. I think it is more personal, its from the heart, and people really appreciate the work that is involved. My friends love it when I made them things, and now they are wanting to know what I am doing this year. Thank you for having such a fun giveaway and I am off to read for your blog.

Chrissy said...

Homemade gifts are definitely the best. I still have all the things my Nanny made me when I was growing up. They are a special treasure and whenever I miss her, I just wrap up in the quilt she made from the scraps of my clothes. I enjoy making gifts for everyone and, each time I sit down to sew for someone, I offer my work as a prayer to God for the person for whom I'm sewing.

I have a sewing date with my oldest daughter tomorrow to work on Christmas gifts.

Love your blog.

Davis Ohana said...

I just picked up quilting this summer. LOVE it. Decided this year I was going to make quilt type projects for Christmas gifts. Just last week, I got hooked onto scrap projects.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I love to give handmade gifts. I try to make a few baby quilts to have on hand at a moment's notice. I love to receive FABRIC as a gift!

megan said...

what great fabric! handmade gifts are the standard for me year round, not just during the holidays. i'm branching out into fabric this year after finding a vintage machine at goodwill for a steal!

shelly said...

I like to make homemade gifts, but sometimes I end up picking things that are too far out of my skill range and then I'm either stuck giving a crummy gift, or buying something and wasting the homemade one. Baby showers are better for homemade gifts because there are more options for cute, simple projects.

Amanda Haller said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I'm making doll cradle bedding for my niece and she would love this fabric!!

Sam said...

I make handmade gift for just about every occasion, but no one ever makes anything for me!

Natasha said...

I am making two quilts this year. One for my mother and the other for my MIL. I do like to give homemade gifts such as jelly and dips.

Brenda said...

I've made pillowcases for everyone, little cosmetic bags out of novelty prints, and this year I'm considering a bib apron or a tablerunner for people. thanks for the chance to win. what's the weather like in NB? Here in Winnipeg, we have sunny and just above freezing.

Alisa said...

Well, I usually start out with good intentions and then as Christmas Day gets closer I realize I just haven't gotten enough done. I do give a few hand made gifts however. I like making ornaments. They're quick and usually simple. Thanks for the give away chance.

deserae said...

I am trying to do a homemade gift for everyone this christmas! I better buckle down and get started!

Becky Fisher said...

I am finally getting into quilting, too! I just made a bunny quilt for my first grandbabys first birthda and I'm hooked.

Nancy Sue said...

I love the fish fabric. You can't help but smile looking at it. I'm a procrastinator when it comes to handmade Holiday gifts. I try throughout the year, but if I make them ahead of time, I tend to give them ahead of time for another occasion, and then still need a holiday gift :) Yikes! I'm also lousy at keeping secrets!

Kristie T said...

I always make some of the gifts I give at Christmas. This year I have made/am making a felted sweater quilt, a toddler quilt, purses and shoulder bags, and barettes. Maybe more as inspiration, time and materials come.

Vanessa said...

I love the fabric! Thanks for the giveaway!

Last year I made all of our Christmas gifts - it was a lot, but so much fun. This year my plan is to do the same, but it's harder to figure out what to make this year!

Regina said...

I give homemade as much as I can - part of the challenge is the sheer size of family on both sides - and part is the recipient having something made especially for them that is like no other. I try to keep them useful or appropriate - lots of pillowcases for the kids!

Erin said...

I used to make every woman in my family (mom, sister, aunts and cousins) a hand-made Christmas ornament, but kind of got out of that tradition once I had my daughter. I still make hand-made gifts for the holidays, just not so many! I also have a sewing/lunch group of 7 ladies and we always make each other something small for Christmas - this year I think I am making mug rugs! :) Thanks for the awesome giveaway - glad to have found your inpiration!

Mimi said...

I always make hand made gifts at Christmas!! I'm not sure if the husbands appreciate the table runners and other things that I make (lol). Thanks for the chance!

paulette said...

I just posted about this VERY topic...about whether to give quilting gifts this year...are they REALLY appreciated. I mean they are tons of work not to mention expensive to make. This year I have opted out...and willsee if anyone notices or misses a quilty gift...
Love your give away!! Thanks for the chance to win!
Take care!

I've just received the most beautiful quilt from my cousin for a housewarming present and I'm hoping to learn from her. So I'm a newbie... never made a quilt before! My mom loves sewing so I'm sure I could get some good tips from her too.

I Li said...

I like giving homemade gifts, but only to people I know will appreciate them or have even wished for them. That's plenty of gifts to make anyway :)

Anonymous said...

I like getting handmade gifts and I like to make them as far as time allows it. I know, my three daughters would like to get bags from me (girls seem to need bags in every color and every size in uncountable numbers) - so I´ll try my best :-)

I am pretty new to quilting (as in January 2010) but remember from growing up how much I adored the things mom made for me for the holidays be it a dress for Santa or new PJ's. She died before meeting her only grandson :o(
I started making new PJ's for my son for Christmas 2 years ago, and he seems to appreciate that his mom took the time to do this for him. I am working very hard to finish a quilt for him for Christmas. He is my greatest gift and to know he can always wrap himself in my love with this quilt is something my mom would have been proud of me for!

easylvia said...

I love making holiday gifts, but I don't quilt. My husband's aunt does though, and I've been subtly hinting that I'd love a quilted growth chart or some I-spy placemats :)

Heather Ross is my all time fave fabric designer!

Congratulations on 100 followers, Riel - that's wonderful! I've been subscribed to your blog through a reader since the Fall into Fall giveaway but I don't know if that counts as a follower or not, so you may have MORE than 100 of us stalking ... I mean reading you! ;)

I'm already working on this year's Christmas gifts - lots of notebook covers, zipper bags, beaded book thongs, and baby/little kid items for family and friends. I can't imagine Christmas without handmade goodies!

I love making homemade christmas presents!! I sew for my four sisters (plus one SIL!!) every year

I like to give homemade quilty gifts to friends, because it is like giving them a hug.
Thanks for offering such a nice giveaway.

Judith said...

THANKS FOR GIVING US A CHANCE TO WIN THESE LOVELY FAT QUARTERS.
I don't give quilty presents for Christmas, well not up to now anyway. However I would love to recieve a subscription to a quilting magazine and may be my family and friends might start recieving something hand made by me.

I prefer to give homemade smaller projects for Christmas.
Your blog gives me inspiration and new ideas.

I used to always give home sewn gifts at Christmas. One of my sisters still has a log cabin pillow that I stitched about 30 years ago!

Meg said...

I'm trying to do mostly home sewn gifts, but do find it hard to come up with time!! All the cousins this year are getting matching homemade ties:)

Sharon@Sharon at Home said...

I'm in the midst of doing a Christmas quilt for my sister-in-law.

JD said...

I always do at least one, but because I'm a procrastinator I never get to do as many as I want. I'll keep plugging away though!

Sandra said...

Thanks for this great giveaway... I have really good intention for getting quilty things ready for Christmas gifts. My maternal family all lives in the UK, so gifts that go via Canada post have to be ready by October 1st. Somehow, i'm never ready by then.........

quilary said...

I do a mix of handmade and bought. I make something 'foody' for the neighbours and have a wall hanging in progress for my sister. I plan on mug coasters for some co-workers. I haven't thought past these yet!

SewLindaAnn said...

I'm doing more homemade gifts for every occasion each year as a personal goal. It's my way to stay in touch with what's really important. It's easier when I make a particular item for more than one person so I can save time and cut out more than one at a time. Last year it was crocheted afghans and slippers, needlepunched and wood candle mats. This year It looks like I'm going with purses geared to their style and those cute fabric baskets from a blog tute filled with some purchased washcloths.

Liz said...

I am making a lot of handmade gifts this year and hope to make it a tradition. So far, I've made table runners for family.

Rachel said...

I've given a few quilts as Christmas or birthday gifts, but only very very special people receive them because, as you know, they are extremely time-consuming to make. I've also made some smaller hand-made gifts - knitted or sewn - but, again, only to people who I know will appreciate the labour and the thought that went into them. I love making gifts, especially for Christmas :)

luckymom said...

I've not made any large quilts. I would like to make some baby quilts but not sure if I'll get the time. In the past, I've made gifts in a jar, or embroidery dishtowels. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Tabitha said...

I wish homemade present were a tradition in my extended family. It's becoming one in my immediate family and I just love it. After years of only asking for homemade gifts from my kids when they were little, they are now doing it as teen & adults. They put time into their projects and I adore them more than anything!

Victoria Paige said...

I'm new to quilting but I have given two handmade items as gifts. One baby rag quilt to a friend who is having a little boy two weeks before I have my little girl. The other, a quilt for my soon to be born little girl.

I plan on making my husband a quilt for Christmas, I'm doing throw pillow covers for a couple I am friends with, and who knows what else I'll come up with. I better get started! It's already November 5! YIKES

Thank you for the giveaway!

I love quilty gifts - both to give and receive.

Lori said...

I love homemade gifts. This year I am making pin cushions from small ramekins and fabric.

Michelle said...

I love making and receiving homemade gifts of any kind. I usually will quilt or sew at least a few items every Christmas. I think a handmade gift is more heartfelt, made especially for the recipient. Yes, I have started on my Christmas crafting list, but unfortunately am not very far on the list yet.

I love giving handmade gifts for xmas. Last year I made tote bags for my friends. This year I had high hopes of making a lap quilt for each of them. I'm on my way - I better get sewing this weekend!

Julie said...

This year I started early so I could enjoy making gifts. Coffee cozy's, doll quilts, crayon roll ups, two charity quilts, and pj's for everyone! Thanks for the chance.

Papgena Made It said...

Danae said...

Congrats on reaching 100 followers! Making things for Christmas has always been something I've wanted to do (and is my goal this year) however I just always run out of time! However this year I am determined to at least make a few gifts (a quilt and hopefully a few bags), of course I should probably get started on them! Less than 50 days left - Yikes!!!

Pattie said...

I am currently cleaning my sewing studio due to having many Christmas projects going at one time. I am in my element! However, there comes a time when so much is going on in this room that I can't think straight. My husband calls it the "girl-cave". This means I'm spending too much time up here! He doesn't know it but it is my sanity!

liniecat said...

Thankyou for allowing us overseas folks into the Giveaway, doubt I will ever manage 100 followers myself, but many congrats to you on doing so!
At last Handmade is fashionable again, funny how cyclicle crafts are isnt it? We can live long enough now to be staill alive twice over, whena craft becomes vogue once again lol
Im making Christams garlands at the moment for door jams, trees and just to dangle, pics going on the blog later of some of them. I dabble with quilting, but use recycled textiles in all ways. I yearn to make a whole quilt, so one day....... lol

Susie Kerner said...

I am new to quilting also. My mom, sister and sister-in-law are accomplished quilters. I buy kits, books, designs, etc. but can't seem to make the plunge and start - probably because they are so good at it. I would love to win your fat quarters.

rickimoo said...

Love to win the fabric. You can never have too much of it. (Thats not what my husband says!) I want to make a new purse and the fabric would be a great help.

I love making homemade "quilty" gifts for christmas. It feels more "heart"made than something I could find in the store.

I don't know how to make a quilt yet but I use fat quarters to make peasant tops and baby blankets for my daughter and her friends.

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I have been making homemade gifts for my family since I was a little kid. My aunt still has the thumb print tissue box cover in her sitting room. For me it has always been a great excuse to craft.

rosemaryschild said...

These fabrics are wonderful! I am just beginning to quilt & I have some beautiful patterns I am going to try-maybe for gifts, maybe for me?

please please please...I'd love to win! These would work well for some gift ideas I have!

Vickie said...

Love the Heather Ross fabrics, thanks for the chance to win them.

Mands said...

I am so new to quilting...I haven't even started yet! I have everything for the quilt top already to make a cozy blanket for my baby girl :)

GinaE said...

Thanks for the chance to win! I am making all my Christmas gifts this year, out of financial need. This fabric would be so great to help with that!!! Making some wall hangings and table runners for gifts.

Molly & Bea & T., Tra-Lee said...

Would love to use these fab fabrics for the dolls and doll quilts I'm making for holiday gifts for some sweet little girls in my life!

Angie said...

I usually do make some little goodies for gifts. This seems to be the year of the pin cushions. :D And now that you've given us the idea of the mug rugs, I'll make a few of those. I've hooked mug rugs in the past but not made any quilty ones. I would most like some 'designer' fabrics for Christmas. I don't usually feel like I can invest that kind of 'quilt shop price' money in the designer fabrics. And of course new quilt book/magazine 'candy' is always on my list. :D Thank you for having a give'away' and congratulations on your mile marker!!

Janet said...

In my family we always give homemade gifts. Not every gift will be homemade but probably at least half of them. Everyone in the family makes things. DD # 1 knits, as does DD # 2. DD # 3 does art work and makes crafty things out of paper. DH does woodwork and other things related to that. On my list this year is an apron for my s-i-l, home dyed wool for DD # 2 and I'm not sure what else yet.

ChrisTea said...

You just can't have too much material around! lol Thank you for the chance to win. Handmade Christmas gifts - yes, I do like to give handmade gifts, depending on what I can get done. Last year, I gave several bookmarks to all the children in the family. This year, I'm trying to finish a piece for my Mom.

Shari said...

I would love to have a new work table in stash room for doing my work on. I think it would entail DH giving me an IOU to do the work but that would be OK. Love your fabrics and appreciate your generous giveaway. ladyjspice@aol.com

I love this fabric and have given handmade gifts for the last few years. I dedicate term 4 (of school in Australia), to Christmas sewing - gifts & decorations.

kristine said...

After just having come home from a Quilt show with my mother and sisters we are having a"quiltopia" sew-a-thon tomorrow. We quite often say if our mother was our teacher we'd never quilt. She is such a perfectionist and we just like to finish. Nevertheless it is a great hobby and one that last through the years and generations. And that fabric is absolutely adorable!

linny said...

I make a lot of homemade gifts. This year I'm in a lot of Christmas online swaps & always send at least 1 thing homemade & give homemade gifts to all my quilting & dollie group friends. Love the fabric, thanks for a chance to win it.
lyn.robyn.smith@gmail.com

Sonya said...

I make all sorts of crafty things for people all year long. I like to make well dressed dollies who are ready for any activity. I love the idea of wild and wacky quilts, which I do for my daughter's dolls with certain clothes that she's destroyed or outgrown. I can't wait until I have the space to make larger scale quilts and things for the humans in our household, which should be soon. I'm asking Santa for a really big cutting surface for my rotary cutter. I've been collecting fat quarters and smaller bits of Heather Ross fabrics for a while now, to make a throw for our library window seat and I don't have even a 4" square of any of the 4 fabrics in the giveaway. I shall have to ask Santa for the fabric instead my cutting board if I don't win. Thanks ever so much for the chance.

Emma said...

How kind! My grandmother (who lives in New Brunswick) makes a Christmas angel wall hanging every year for my mother. I'm currently working on my very first quilting project, a small Christmas-colored quilt, and plan to give it to my gran for Christmas.

Ang-e said...

I love to give and receive handmade items. My husband and I give each other one handmade item at Christmas-something we created out of love for the other person. That gift means more than any other.

Emily said...

I use fat quarters to make purses and aprons. I've been making them all year for this year's christmas gifts.

Anita said...

Congratulations on 100 Followers! You have a wonderful blog and you will surely have 1000 to celebrate before you know it!

Last year, while we were all gathered on Christmas Eve, we make plans to have a "Green" Christmas this year. Most of us are creative or artistic. The rules are that each gift you give must be handmade or a Thrift Store/Flea Market gift. So far I have only 4 gifts ready, but I work well under pressure!!

Again, Congratulation! I look forward to joining you for other land Mark moments

Sincerely,
Anita

Mary said...

I've always loved to give homemade gifts even before I learned to quilt! This year 1 sister is getting a quilted table runner and the other one a wall hanging. I'm also making lots of pillowcases in fun fabrics to give everyone. I try to make something quilted for someone every year. When we first got married, homemade was about all we could afford to give to our family and we were very creative in the things we came up with at times.

Singtatter said...

I have always tatted Christmas gifts - bookmarks, motifs, etc. I just started on fabric craft doing fabric ATCs and little dolls. Hope to build up my fabric stash!

Thanks for the chance to win! Love the pretty prints on the fabrics :)

Every year I make handmade gifts and every year I undergo the same delusion: it's November, I have plenty of time . . . next thing I know it's the 23rd of December and I'm in a total panic knitting non stop, were talking while I eat or walk. I believe the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. I'm clearly insane. Maybe sewing is faster? Maybe this giveaway will solve my problem? Maybe not . . . but thanks for the chance to win!

Elizabeth said...

I usually like to give homemade gifts for Christmas, but did not start as early this year as I should have. Hence, I will do some homemade gifts and give some giftcards. The only quilty thing I'm making so far is a quilt for my parents and I need to finish one I started for my daughter.

Lynne said...

This year I'm keeping it simple. I'm making PJ's for the kids, and a stuffie to go with it. I will also try to make all of the bags for gift wrapping. That way, I still get to make something for everyone but it will be easy, simple and quick... and a lot less stressful! Thanks for the giveaway!

Heather Acton said...

I grew up with mostly all handmade things. I had very resourceful and creative parents, both by necessity and talent.

I've started making things ... some small quilted things projects and some quick but tasteful cusions and some wool felting projects. I love the fabric.

rlynnbaker said...

i havent started yet but i have been planning. I love making crafted goods for christmas, especially since becoming a mother.

SandyQuilts said...

I try to make something new every year. This year my big project was a tree skirt for DD#2 ... she's recently married and has a new baby.

I love making things but so many now are not interested in gifts by hand. Sad.

Hands Sew Full said...

Ohhh! Such pretty fabric!
I love making handmade Christmas gifts and have done so for a few years now. We don't even use wrap any more, the kids and I sewed all fabric gift bags! The kids just know that come this time of year they have to ask if it is OK to go to the play room (where my machine is) or the cutting room (which is on the way to the fish tank)! They would be very sad if I hadn't "made" their prezzies! Any one can buy them something but only Mamma makes them things!

Jen said...

One of most favorite gifts to ever get were some hand-knitted potholders from my aunt. I used them until they had big black holes in them! Every year I hint to her that I would love another pair. Thanks for the giveaway!

Nancy said...

I haven't done as much homemade gift giving in the past, mostly because of time constraints. But I am doing more this year and I love it! My wish list from Santa this year is some Fandango and Bliss fabrics. Thanks for the darling giveaway.

As this is my first season as a quilter this will be my first year giving quilt-y gifts! I have a few lap quilts on the go and am going to make a few pillowcases for Santa to pop into my children's stockings! (Thanks for the great idea, Riel!)

On my quilt-y wishlist: Accuquilt GO!, please!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the horse riding clothing fabric... my daughter would love that for her room!!!

Thanks for the chance to win!

This year I am making my husband a quilt. He has some health issues and spends a lot of time in hospitals and needs something "homey" and familiar to have with him.
