    Would love to see a picture of your basket pattern. That might be something I would order!!!

    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.

    Gifts

    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.

    It's called the Berry Basket Kit.
    They also have a store in Portland, Me.

    So many wonderful ideas! Thanks for everyone who replied!

    I received one of the best quilty presents ever! My aunt and cousin appliqued monthly banners to display on a metal stand. They are adorable and I absolutely love them! I'll see if I can find the book they used for the patterns. They just used up their fabric scraps and these are the most beautiful pieces!

    I made 2 quilts from my stash, a 56x62 and a queen size for the "white elephant" exchange at our office party. Then 2 sets of sofa pillows using left over blocks from other quilts I made.

    I only made a few gifts. I made three quilted wristlets using the Youtube tutorial by Crafty Gemini.

    Lap quilt for husband, just for fun all the gals received different style pin cushions- pattens found on the web. Everyone liked the owl pin cushions the most. For all the little girls I made aprons. Looking back I was kind of busy.
