    I am making flannel lap quilts for my family. They are fun and so easy to make. I still have 2 more to make. We have to go to a Christmas party on the 15th, so maybe I will make another one. It only takes a couple of hour sto make one lap quilt, so I still have plenty of time and not feel stressed out. I just love your pillow. I can give it to me for a Christmas present for the upstairs bedroom. Just perfect. I follow your blog and thank you for the most generous giveaway ever.

  50. mrsmoore December 3, 2012 at 8:48 am

    I’m not making any gifts this year–I’m giving everyone books I think they’ll like. I’ve decided not to gift quilts anymore–I just make the quilts I want to make, and if someone likes a quilt, I’ll just give it to them. People are generally thrilled to walk out the door with an unexpected quilt in their hands.

  51. Kelly Duke December 3, 2012 at 9:00 am

    I work fulltime and have two kids, so my time is limited.
    I’m just sewing the Helix pattern from Emily Herrick’s book “Geared for Guys”. It’s a fantastic pattern, easy to follow and it turns out stunning, doing it twice. I have to finish that until Christmas because it’s my gift to my DH, he finally gets a quilt of his own. :-)

  86. Alicia December 3, 2012 at 3:18 pm

  87. Laura December 3, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    I’m still working on quilts for the nieces and 1 nephew. Thanks! ldw13010(at)gmail(dot)com

  92. Alyce Rodriguez December 3, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway! My plans are ambitious… I need to make a lap quilt for my great aunt and quilts each for my niece & 3 children. I also plan to sew up some totes for 2 other nieces, an apron for yet another niece and crochet some amigurumi monsters for 2 nephews. And since I have never made anything for myself, I would like to squeeze in an apron and some pajama pants for myself. It sounds ridiculous when I type it out like that, huh?

  93. Michele December 3, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    I still have a couple of gifts to make for my friends!!

  94. Libby December 3, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Gorgeous pillow – I don’t know how you can part with it! I’m making infinity scarves for my daughters and a friend. In a pinch you could always do food gifts – they are always appreciated. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  110. SewCalGal December 3, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Love your pillow. Looks like a fun technique.


  111. kathy h December 3, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    I am making a huge pile of pillowcases for the whole family.

  112. quiltmom anna December 3, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    Amy- I still have a couple of quilts to finish but whether they get done in time is another question entirely- I have been really busy this whole fall so I have kind of lost my oomph just now. They are not really Christmas gifts- just gifts that I want to give some special family members.
    Your lucky recipient will love your pillow.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  113. kriswithmany December 3, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    I’ve got 2 quilts planned and only have finished! Not many days left!

  126. Tammy December 4, 2012 at 4:42 am

    I still have some little purses and art caddies to make for my nieces, hoping to finish all the cutting tonight ready to start sewing! Have a lovely day.

  127. Michaela December 4, 2012 at 7:22 am

    I’m making a soft quiet book for my little nephew

  128. Leo December 4, 2012 at 7:35 am

    ohh my – 2 quilts, 3 pot holders, 1 pillow

  129. KatieQ December 4, 2012 at 8:16 am

    I’m hoping to finish 2 tea cozies, but they will have to wait until I finish my main project. I am making a small altar cloth to go in front of the tabernacle at our church.

  130. julia December 4, 2012 at 9:09 am

    I still need to make some hats and some stuffies

  131. Mary December 4, 2012 at 9:23 am

    I still have a few quick ones to make – pillowcases to wrap Christmas gifts in and a raincoat.

  132. Jane S. December 4, 2012 at 9:24 am

    That’s a pretty pillow! Thank you for the chance to win.

    I need to finish off 3 more ornaments. I’m making the fold and pin “quilted” ornaments, the kind that are done over a styrofoam base. It’s fun to coordinate all the fabric and ribbon. :)

  133. Carolyn December 4, 2012 at 9:26 am

    I love the pillow! Oh I still have a good list to finish this month.

    1 twin-size space quilt (top half done)
    1 blue queen quilt in 2.5′ squares (just the top)
    1 blue string throw quilt
    2 table runners
    1 iPad case
    1 tree skirt.
    2 super hero capes
    2 floor pillows

    I better get a move on!

  134. kellylynn December 4, 2012 at 9:32 am

    I really need to finish a messenger bag for my boy at a minimum. Then a bag for my mom.

  135. Marjorie Nath December 4, 2012 at 10:28 am

    I’m finishing quilting on a 2nd snuggle quilt. When that’s done, I’m hoping to get 2 coin purses and matching messenger bags to go with them. If I can manage to get those all done I’m sure other Christmas projects will appear but I have been focusing on what I really need to get done for the younger people on my list.

  136. Cindy Hennes December 4, 2012 at 11:38 am

    Working on quilting two quilts and need to make a couple of pillows too – yours is great love the modern look!

  137. VickiT December 4, 2012 at 11:43 am

    Oh gosh yes, I have far too many gifts yet to make. I need to make Christmas Stockings and a few toys for my Grandchildren yet. I also want to make some sort of cover for my husband’s tablet but am not sure what yet. I keep searching patterns and haven’t found the perfect ‘guy’ looking one yet sadly.

  138. Cheryl December 4, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    I still need to make some table runners and a lap quilt for gifts.

  139. Jennifer December 4, 2012 at 12:47 pm

  141. Maureen Hayes December 4, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    I am making some coffee sleeves that use sticky back canvas that I have decorated over the cardboard sleeve you can get at Starbucks or other coffee shops. I have also made homemade Christmas cards and some simple jewelry pieces. I hope one of these helps to inspire you in your gift making,

    This pillow is adorable and I thank you for offering it as a giveaway.

    Merry Christmas!

  142. Fran December 4, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Hi Amy, I am working on an applique bunny runner. It is so darn cute. There are 4 brown bunny faces with bow ties. Very colorful. Lots of buttons involved! I can machine quilt this because it’s small, so I will be able to get this done in time for Christmas!!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  159. DESPINA December 5, 2012 at 11:04 am

    I’m making bookmarks right now, crocheted and beaded
    I think your pillow would be a favorite in our family, sort of Christmas standard for the years to come

  161. Gill December 5, 2012 at 11:16 am

  162. Lesley December 5, 2012 at 11:19 am

    If you knew how that cushion matches my decor…

    I cannot make any more this year. I’m shattered : )

  163. Crunchy Con Mommy December 5, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    All of November either my preschooler or I (or both) were sick, so I didn’t get like any sewing done and am way behind. So I still have like 6 throw pillow covers to make (not as intricate as yours though!) and some hand towels to embroider (luckily just a monogram, nothing complicated), and am hoping to have time to make my son and husband matching flannel PJ pants! I may have some late nights-thank goodness for cocoa and cookies!!

  164. Deb Cline December 5, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    I am done! Good thing, too, as I just had shoulder surgery. Love the pillow!

    I am making 2 things this month and both are for my son. I am making him a hungry caterpillar quilt. I’m almost done just have to finish quilting and bind it. I’m also making him a quiet book full of monsters. I think he’ll get a kick out of it. By the way, I loved reading what other people are making!
