Sewing Projects for a Full Heart (and Bobbin)!

When someone is covered in a cozy, warm quilt, they are reminded that someone sat at a sewing machine for hours, carefully piecing and stitching, with them in mind. A handmade table runner sitting on the family dining table shows a loving home to all who feast there. To be gifted a wall hanging is a reminder that they are loved by its maker.

Valentine’s day is one of the best holidays to make for because it’s about love and we LOVE to make! Here are some sweet as pie project ideas:

Quick & Easy Quilt As You Go Gift Ideas

Quilt as you go” is a fun technique in which you piece and quilt all at once so by the time you are finished with your top, all you have to do is bind, and voila… your done! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Quilt as you go gives you way to focus on each piece individually and not worry about the entirety of a project. These are perfect for the holidays when you may have to come up with quick gift ideas!
