Welcome to the Quilting Board!
This year was crazy and I did not have time to make any gifts. I then ended up with the flu in December and wound up just giving gift cards! Did not feel the holiday spirit!
last year though my mother in law and I made quilted professioinal totes for most of the women on our list. Phew! Such a detailed pattern that it took us two full sewing days to make two... After we completed about eight of them we swore we would never make another! Everyone loved them though so all the work was worth it!
Pot holders. Considering I did not have a patteren, they turned out pretty nice. I don't know how to post a picture or I would. sorry/
Table runners was all I did this year.
Lots2do the little baskets sound neat. I looked on the website and couldn't find them. Do you have a picture? Would love to see it. I need ideas for secret santa, quilt guild gifts etc.......
I only made pillowcases this Christmas, because I had so many knitted gifts to complete. All the pillowcases were geared to the personality of the recipient and all were very well received.
Last Christmas I made daughter and son-in-law a big quilt. They loved it.

I made those cup organizers this year (30 of them) and they were the biggest hit. I am thinking bed organizer this next Christmas. My family loves me to make the gifts as I give things they can't readly buy and I usually wrap them in some sort of unusual way. Like one year I packed everyones gift in oat meal boxes. We collected the boxes all year.
I made each of my three grown children bed quilts, and each of my 3 grown granddaughters lap quilts. Made my two great granddaughters doll clothes.
