If you don’t know Madam Samm of Sew We Quilt, she’s one of the most creative and encouraging ladies I’ve met in the blogging community. So, when she proposed a Secret Santa sort of blog hop, I signed right up! Knowing that Marlene of Stitching by the Lake was cheering us all on made it even more fun. Then, of course, I had to battle my fear of rejection and my inclination towards procrastination. What if my partner didn’t like what I made? What if I epically failed? What if I didn’t like what I got? Well, as usual, all my worrying was pointless! My recipient loved her gift and I got this adorable set in the mail along with the gorgeous, handmade card and fabric!
Everything was so adorable, I had to do close-ups! I can’t wait to put these out for Christmas but the penguin may have to stay out all year…pink being my very favorite! So a huge thank you to Mandy for such a fun gift!
Here’s the rest of today’s list of hoppers, be sure to check them all out. What I made is being shown over on Apple Avenue Quilts.

Now, as usual, I have a little giveaway for my commenters and this time my younger daughter did all the work from choosing the fat quarters to photographing them with her cat, Jack. Jack, as you can tell, is a real character.
I always say he’s a dog in a cat suit! So, leave a comment about your favorite homemade holiday gift to make and give (this is cheating on my part….I need ideas!) or any other comment and you’ll be entered to win these three fat quarters. Oh, and I took some photos while I was making my items so I’ll try to post a tutorial for my coaster set later in the week.
Thanks for hopping by and have fun!
