The joy of this season truly lies within giving. It's one of mankind's most intrinsic ways of showing love. We're born with the desire to share with those we care most about. Think about the way a small child proudly offers a pebble, a shell, a scribble, a hug... the most simple offering in a gesture of kindness. We give with hope of lifting and bringing warmth to others, known and unknown, often as a way to show gratitude. The greatest gifts come from the heart. For many of us makers that means a handmade gift. Whether that be a tasty treat, unique token or something sewn up with love, our gifts tend to reflect the creative spirit within. We hope to help you this holiday season as you seek to give gifts that share your heart. Here are a few ideas from the Corn Wagon to help Santa with his gift list.
Of course as quilters, our first thought is often the gift of wrapping a loved one in a handmade quilt. Oh, if only we could make a quilt for all those on our list! If time and money had no limits, we might just give it a shot! For those quilter's you hold dear, why not give them a quilt kit? It's a gift that offers the satisfaction of creating with our favorite medium - - FABRIC! This adorable quilt has a Christmas feel but these happy snowmen are ready to offer warmth all winter long. The Snowy Wishes
fabric collection and quilt were designed by Jennifer Pugh, a talented artist who lives right here in Springville, Utah! This one was pieced by Karen Averett and custom machine quilted by Ramona Sorensen. A traditional Irish Chain overlies a subtle pieced buffalo check. Soft greys with winter white snowflakes make this quilt reminiscent the gentle diffused light of a dreamy snowscape. Pick up a kit for a friend or piece this 63" x 81" quilt and share it with someone you love.Oh! Did someone say FABRIC? All Christmas fabrics by the yard are now 25% off!
No time for piecing but love the idea of giving a quilt? Back in stock, the Merry Little Christmas panel by Lella Boutique is large enough (56" x 74") to simply quilt, bind and give - - or just give! Emily Herrick had fun adding custom quilted details to the one shown above. Speaking of machine quilting, we're still accepting quilts for Christmas but time is running out! Bring those quilts in right away to have them back in time to put under the tree.
