ok food for thought because we get our partners names middle of Jan but have to ship by the end of Jan there seems to me not enough time to just whip out what our partner likes vs what we made am I correct? I think they will only take an hour or two at the most to make at the most so maybe there is time. Its secret so you have to follow close to find out what your partner has posted they like or dont like?
if your a last minute put it together person and you draw me I love holidays. so anything will holiday fabric is good to go with me or seasonal colors? not picky at all and of course my plates are pale pink so you could go with that too. It will go on the center of my dinner table. And I agree for anyone who has a hard time with binding the non binding method is just fine. I think less embellishments are better as well you cant put anything on it if its got those buttons and what nots there. and maybe not as washable. You tube has some extremely good binding videos by the Missouri quilt company. I love their tips and they have an absolutely fool proof lesson on good binding. I think anyone who is scared or had issues with binding should check it out.
