Anyway, the first gift I want to share was for my mother-in-law.
A quilted calendar! Isn't this the cutest idea ever? I wish I could take credit for it, but I got the idea from i heart linen, who just recently released her first book. And I believe it has the pattern for her calendar in it. Check it out here.
I didn't use the pattern, just sort of made it up as I went along. It was so much fun-- and it was my first trial with printing on paper. Definitely one of my favorite new techniques. Did you learn anything from your Christmas projects?
