Call me crazy, but my mission this year is to make handmade gifts for everybody this Christmas! Not only are these gifts more cherished but making and creating really gets you into the festive spirit – if it’s a toss up between an afternoon on the high street or a craft session, I know which I would choose every time.
I’ve been inspired by The Amazings (did you see my previous post about this brilliant organisation?) to try another of their online classes to help achieve my goal. This time I went for the heirloom patchwork quilt class, led by Virginia. Admittedly, I took lots and lots of shortcuts (such as buying the hexagons ready-cut from Liberty!) but I got there in the end. This is my hand sewn cot quilt that one lucky little kinder will be getting this Christmas:

Thank you to The Amazings and to Viriginia for the brilliant hand-quilting class; I’m going to find it really difficult to give that little quilt away.
