    Another idea about our monthly projects

    I love opening the package on Christmas morning, but I would also love to know about each project or item. If doing a quilted project where did you get the pattern, fabric and maybe a quick explanation of why it was chosen. I plan to wrap each month and include a short note about my project. I hope everyone is on target--I am behind. I will be playing catch up in the next few weeks now that my schedule is thinning out. First my husband had a health issue and he is now better and my 'feral' cat that I feed was in a fight with another cat and had to have an large abscess drained this morning. Nasty!!!

    Have a wonderful week and looking forward to finding out what May's theme will be.


    I think that is a great idea....most gifts don't need an explanation of what they are, but a link to the pattern and why it was the chosen one for the monthly theme would be great!

      Love this idea, I have gotten gifts that I would like to know more about, especially the name of the pattern.

      Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!


        I generally shoot from the hip, and create as I go, but I could try to do this.
        Blankets wrap you in warmth, quilts wrap you in love



          Not a bad idea at all, need to go back and write notes on the finished gifts. I love wrapping each one individually makes it fun for me and hopefully for the receiver.


            Last year was my first year in the group and I didn't even think about including a note with the gifts that I made, but when I received my package and opened the gifts, there was a personal note giving a little info about each gift. It was so nice. I can't say that I'll be able to do that myself, but I sure would like to try.

            Happy Quilting!


              I was thinking to do the same thing to write a little note for each gift telling where the inspiration came from and the link to the pattern in case the recipient wants to make it as well

                That's a great idea!
