Making Christmas Week 11

So I did not get everything I wanted done but it was fun to see what I could get done.  My last finish was not even on my list and I have one more to make but have until New Year's Eve now.  Thank goodness.

I made the infinity scrap from the Fat Quarter Gang.  A couple of girls at the quilt shop had them and thought they would make great gifts for my son's girlfriends.  I did the youngest ones first.  He requested grey and coral.  I bought a few pieces and then filled in with stash fabric.  I had gotten some Botanic and Indian Summer.  Then used other black/grey/white prints.  I thought it turned out cute.  It seems like a lot of fabric and you will probably need to iron. it.  I told him the return policy is give it back and then you guys go pick one out together.  I would not want this pretty fabric wasted! I don't think that will happen.

The older one needs to pick out the fabric and I will make one more.  They were really fast to make.  It took about 30 minutes to sew.  Picking the fabric is what took a little bit.

Here is the Christmas list updated.

1.  5 Thread catchers- pin cushion thingys.  (that is the technical term) November 13th -DONE!                  2.  Apron- chocolate theme - gift for my friend that we make chocolates together each year- Finally found the fabric but we are done with our chocolate making so next year.
3.  3 sets of pot holders, towels and now coasters - gifts for co-workers. DONE!
