It’s that time of year when we are gearing up for the holidays. Or at least I am. I’m thinking about and planning for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and NewYear’s Day. What will we eat? Am I going to host the celebrations? Or will that task fall on one of our children? And what about gifts? I find myself in the unusual position of not having enough quilts yet to gift at our family Christmas celebration. We have a large family. In a typical year I have 15 or more quilts of varying sizes ready to give and I am nowhere close to that number right now. I can tell you I’ll be sewing like crazy for the next few weeks.

Betty Craven Springfield, IL SEW ON THE GO If I can’t travel with my current quilt project, I have a DIY embroidery kit I can take on the road. A clear bed-linens bag, a repurposed bottle for needles, and blunt-ended children’s scissors are all I need. Oh, and my project!

I love vintage-style quilts! When I saw Star-Spangled Banner in Love of Quilting’s March/April 2019 issue, I was initially intimidated by paper piecing. Luckily I learned it is addictive and fun! Dot Kriegshauser Edina, MO Mariner’s in a Pickle from Love of Quilting’s September/ October 2008 issue was a wonderful challenge. I modified the border and added a gold metallic flange. The quilt received a ribbon in a local show! Eugena Turner Independence, MO My grandson is getting married so I went hunting through my magazines for the perfect quilt. I made Dublin Town from Love of Quilting’s March/April 2018 issue in blue and white batiks. I also added borders and embroidered their names and date of marriage in one of the quilt squares. I hope this will be a keepsake for them for…
