From the Heart Blog Hop

Carol from “Just Let Me Quilt” mentioned this blog hop WAY back in July … and of course, I jumped on the band-wagon.  What could be better than a blog hop a mere 2 months before Christmas featuring small gift ideas?  Carol comes up with the BEST blog hops!

Here’s my small gift(s)  …   they all nest inside this one!

Here they are poking out:

What they look like inside: (sorry it was hard to get a good picture with no shadows!)

And all 4 of them:


  • Island Batik fabric from the Deco Revival collection was used for the lining and outer side.
  • Soft & Stable was used between the 2 fabrics.
  • The pattern is “Clam Up” byAnnie
  • Aurifil #2610 was used for the quilting, sewing together and the trim
  • Free motion quilting was swirls or wavy lines
  • They were easy to make! And, I think they are very cute!

I used the fabric from the Deco collection for my byAnnie’s “Bowl Me Over” purse and October “Thread Painting with Aurifil” project (the elephant).

Make sure you visit all of the participating blogs … there promises to be LOTS of eye candy and all sorts of projects to tempt you into making some gifts “from the heart!” Let me know which ones YOU plan to make!

  3. Gail I love these pouches! What a sweet idea for a gift for my DILs! They travel a lot so these will be perfect additions to their suitcases. Yay! Another wee gift crossed of my “what to make list”. Thank you for sharing. 😉

  4. Hi Gail! What a cool and clever idea. These remind me of those cute little Russian dolls – they keep getting smaller and smaller and also better and better. I love this! ~smile~ Roseanne
