Quillows for Christmas

At the November 2011 sewing day with the Jerseygirl Quilters, I started working on quillows (a quilt that folds into a pillow). I had six to get done before Christmas. I am happy to say I succeeded.

My great nephew Damyan's Sesame Street quillow:

My granddaughter Airyana's Dora quillow:

My grandson Teon's Cars quillow:

My grandson Naseem's Sponge Bob quillow:

My cousin Alex's Winnie the Pooh quillow:

I finished the first 5 pretty quickly using fabric from the stash. The 6th one I had to buy fabric for. I'm glad I was able to get them all done in time for Christmas.

Secret Santa Swap

Shawnee's latest swap, the Secret Santa swap didn't turn out too good. For some reason there were too many flakers this go round. What nerve of someone to sign up for the swap, receive a package, and fail to send one out. I don't know how some individuals can sleep at night. Anyway I received this cute package from Lenore, an angel since whoever had me originally flaked:

My partner was Laura and I sent out this package to to her:

I also angeled and sent out this package to Lenore:
