Now that the gifts are gifted…………..

I am free to share the delightful finishes……..

First, granddaughter’s table topper. Total fun and becomes an “I Spy” quilt for the 2 sweet great grands….IMG_7754IMG_7756      This is a great topper to use all those 5” charm packs we all have stashed away!!!!! The beginning of this little story, and the pattern, may be found here. A look at the back……IMG_7760   I added borders to give it a bit more size.

The next topper, same pattern, (for DIL)  has a definite theme….froggies!IMG_7761IMG_7762   IMG_7762     See this link for its beginnings.    This one has a smaller border just to tie all the colors together. The back…IMG_7765IMG_7767   Piecing the backing is always a delight, especially when I’m able to continue the theme!!!!!!

      They definitely did and the post I did late yesterday gives a “taste” of the event! It is a very nice pattern and one that lends itself to many different possibilities. Using some of my charm pack stash is number 1 on next year’s goal list!!!!!!!

  8. What wonderful personalized gifts. So blessed are the recipients to received your handcrafted art.

      There is something very special about such “gifts from the heart” but, I must add that, those who shop with special thoughts towards the recipient add a big dose of heart to the “store-bought” variety, too!!!!!!!
