I can hardly believe it, but I really finished all handmade gifts!
Firstly, here is the tree skirt for my parents.
I free motion quilted it yesterday and it went very much better than I anticipated. FMQ really is a matter of training. My stitch lenghts still are not even, but better than in my previous attempts.
I am quite happy with it. When it lays under the tree, the only person who will come near enough to examine the stitches is my three year old niece and I think she will not bother. :-)
I even found a red and white striped fabric in my stash to make a candycane binding! I sewed it on completely by machine because of the time issues, and it came out nicely.
Two of you asked me about a pattern, but there is none. I saw a similar tree skirt when I googled images, but it had a scalloped edge and no red stips between the trees.
I just used it as an inspiration and made the skirt up as I went along.
The compass pillow for my husband is also finished.
I just have to wrap it up before he comes home from work today.
And if you still are not too bored with my pillows, here are the blue ones for my parents and the brown ones for my in-laws.
And a pic of Pillow Mountain. :-)
I´m linking up with the Friday Felicities over at Felicity Quilts, because it really makes me happy to have a handmade gift for almost everyone.
