Christmas Presents

This year Erin and I collaborated and decided to make each other Mini Quilts for our Christmas gifts. We each looked through our favorites on flickr to get an idea of what to make. I decided to go with a Plus quilt since Erin had a ton of them in her favorites and I knew that she had never made one yet.

A Plus for Erin


Both Erin and I love green and aqua so I knew that is what I was going to make hers with but we did decide ahead of time that we had to have a piece of the orange Henna Garden & green moon dot fabric. I love that we did that now since I love the orange plus in the mini.

All washed


I washed it before I mailed it out to her since the crinkly look is just one of the best things about quilts.

We waited until we got eachothers in the mail and then got on Skype to watch eachother open them.

Erin made me a Wonky Snowball mini. Isn't it so great???

It looks great on my wall of mini's. My wall is a little out of place right now since my parents are here and staying in my sewing room so once they leave in a month or so I will get my room back together and take another picture.

I also made my friend Sara a boxy make-up pouch since she had said she loved mine.

I followed this tutorial but I added a strap and another tab. Next time I make this I think I will make it larger.

Well I am all done and ready for Christmas to get here. Tomorrow is going to be so much fun with the girls opening all of their gifts.

Hi! I just found your blog while looking for inspiration for my 3rd baby girl's quilt. I love the plus quilt! May I ask what the floral/plaid fabric on the right side is? I'd love to add that to this quilt if possible. Thanks! I look forward to more of your quilts!
