Quilting is one of my favorite hobbies so doing quilts for my BMs was a pretty fast decision for me. I started really early because I didn’t want to be up sewing the night before my wedding. I hoped to get them done before my bridal shower so I could gift the girls then, but that didn’t happen. Tomorrow is my bachelorette though, and I finished the last quilt last night! They’ll get some other stuff at the rehearsal dinner, but I wanted to give them the quilts while it was still early enough in winter to get a bit of use of them!
Anyone else make home-made gifts?

WOW! that is impressive!! I have never quilted but I know from friends that have that it is a HUGE time commitment and a lot of work. That is so special that you did that for them! And they look awesome! Really cute. I’d love to make something for mine, but I don’t have a regular crafting hobby that I’m particularly skilled at. Maybe I’ll try to think of something homemade cause I would be so happy to get something as sweet and personal as one of those quilts!

Thanks girls, I hope they like them! Each of them, throughout the years, has asked me to make them a quilt and I never got around to it/they never picked colors… so this seemed like a good time. They’re cuddle-size (not bed size) so they don’t need to match their houses or anything, but I hope I picked fabric they like.

Those are wonderful!!!!! Do you machine or hand quilt? Quilting is on my long list of things that I wish I did. Those are PERFECT gifts.

They are hand-tied, not actually quilted. I guess “quilting” is kind of a misnomer, but that is still what its called even when they are tied. 🙂 Quilts I’ve made that I want to be quilted I send out once I”m done with them.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! If I had the patience to make quilts, I’d probably make one for every single person I know, for ever single occasion (Can you tell I have an extreme love for all things comfy?). Alas, I do not have the patience…so all my friends will just have to be cold:) I think it’s a brilliant idea…I think my bridesmaids will probably just be getting jewelry though.

These are GORGEOUS! What a wonderful gift. I would love to be one of your bridesmaids!
I make handmade jewelry, so I’ll be making my Bridesmaids’ earrings, necklaces and bracelets. For each bracelet, i’m incorporating each bridesmaid’s birthstone and mine 🙂
