In addition to quilts and clothes, I have tried my hand at whipping up some gifts that finish a bit more quickly. Throw pillows are a staple, of course. Years ago, I found a great pattern for a small tote bag and made quite a few of those for a while, as well as small stuffed elephants and some kids’ aprons. Christmastime brought tea towels and a table runner into the mix. While I do enjoy these little projects, my priority will definitely remain quilts for now.
