Giveaway Day!

Welcome all of those stopping by from Sew, Mama, Sew!  If you haven’t been by before, feel free to poke around and get to know me better!

Giveaway Day!

My handmade offering is this sweet doll quilt, from Quilting From Little Things, by Sarah Fielke.

I made it a few weeks ago, and feel the need to share with one of you!  It measures 15″ square, complete with hand quilting,  and a hand-stitched binding.

To win, answer one simple question:

How many gifts have you managed to make this year?

And don’t feel bad if the answer is none – that’d be my answer!

I’ll select a winner by random number generator, on Friday, December 16, 2011.

Thanks for stopping by ~

  1. Jeannette December 12, 2011 at 7:28 am

    So far, about 3/4 of a gift. Trying desperately to get my daughter’s quilt quilted and bound for a Christmas eve surprise. :)

  2. Amy December 12, 2011 at 7:30 am

    I’ve completed 7 handknit or crocheted gifts (mostly scarves, some hats, a pair of fingerless mittens) and still need to finish two. I started in September!

  3. Jan December 12, 2011 at 7:31 am

    I’ve made five gifts, to give away. I also made 6 back ups, just in case.

  4. Tammy December 12, 2011 at 7:31 am

    So far I have made – 3 appliqued aprons, 2 appliqued drawstring bags and I have 3 more drawstring bags to make. I have 2 quilts that I made for my boys last year also to quilt, but think that they might now be Birthday Pressies lol

  5. IssabellaTheCat December 12, 2011 at 7:32 am

    What a lovely mini quilt!
    I’ve made 4 quilts, 2 double and 2 lap size, for Christmas gifts and some cushions for last moment gifts so not too bad. I had intended to make more than that but you know what it’s like – time got away from me!

  6. Faye December 12, 2011 at 7:33 am

    I’ve finished stockings for the kids (which they don’t really count as a gift, but I do!). I think I might actually finish a quilt for my sister also. Here’s hoping!

  7. ga447 December 12, 2011 at 7:34 am

    I have made a sleeping bag for dolls and have 4 more to go.

  8. Limor December 12, 2011 at 7:38 am

    I’ve been pretty industrious. I made 4 drawstring backpacks, 4 “crunchy” taggie blankets, 3 shirt/pant outfits, and about a dozen bracelets.

  9. Charming's Mama December 12, 2011 at 7:38 am

    I’ve actually make quite a few. Your quilt really is lovely.

  10. Ana December 12, 2011 at 7:38 am

    So far I have made gifts for two boys. But I am planning on making gifts for every kid (total =10)!!

  11. craftytammie December 12, 2011 at 7:38 am

    all i’ve made for gifts so far are food gifts – fudge, pepper-onion relish, and cookies. your quilt is so sweet!

  12. Miss White Wall December 12, 2011 at 7:40 am

    This year I have made significantly less than last year, but so far I’ve made 5 and there are quite a few left on the quilting queue!

  13. Ktquilts December 12, 2011 at 7:42 am

    One large quilt, three sets of coasters, and a set of fingerless gloves. I still have a large quilt to finish!

  14. Debbie December 12, 2011 at 7:42 am

    I’ve made two and hope to have two more……darling little quilt!

  15. Cláudia December 12, 2011 at 7:43 am

    I made 3: 1 for my son, 1 for my husband and 1 for my mother…

  16. Claudia D. December 12, 2011 at 7:47 am

    I made one lap quilt for my nephew. I machine embroidered a few ornaments also.

  17. Jaclyn Davis December 12, 2011 at 7:47 am

    I ended up making 15 gifts! I started in Feb. though. Tried to give myself plenty of time.

  18. Melissa December 12, 2011 at 7:48 am

    I’ve amazed myself this year – I managed to hand make every single gift for everyone outside of my son and husband! it’s definitely a first, and was only possible because I hadn’t figured out what to do with several finished projects from throughout the year. But hey, i did it! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  19. Diane December 12, 2011 at 7:49 am

    I’m in the process of making some cute scallop tote bags…hoping I have time to finish them before Christmas!

  20. Suzanne December 12, 2011 at 7:49 am

    I haven’t made a single gift this year – life is too busy with a newborn :) I may make a couple mug rugs or place mats yet though…we’ll see.

  21. Karen W. December 12, 2011 at 7:51 am

    I’ve made one gift. I’m starting on another one today!

  22. Rhonda aka Quilter in The Gap December 12, 2011 at 7:51 am

    Ummmm….does one in progress count. If not, then NONE!!! but there is still hope! what an adorable quilt…i hope, i hope, i hope i win!!!

  23. Janine December 12, 2011 at 7:54 am

    I’ve made 19 gifts this year. I hadn’t added them up before – I’m quite impressed!

  24. Diary of Flutter.Kat December 12, 2011 at 7:56 am

    what a lovely giveaway!
    Um I haven’t been counting to be honest – how bad is that! LOL…
    I have made at least 5 I guess with more to come.

  25. April December 12, 2011 at 7:59 am

    So far I have made 5 homemade gifts this year:
    2x pillows for secret santa exchanges
    a table runner and napkin set for my stepmom
    a 3-years in the making afghan for my mom
    knit socks for a friend
    Hopefully I’ll get some aprons and ornaments made up too!

  28. Elizabeth December 12, 2011 at 8:04 am

    This would be perfect for one of my daughter’s American Girl dolls! I am waiting for some vintage banadanas to make their way to my house in the next few days so I can put it in a frame along with a dry erase marker for a DIY marker board for my in laws. :)

  29. Tsoniki Crazy Bull December 12, 2011 at 8:04 am

    So far I’ve made only a few – but I still have two weeks! So I’m not giving up. By the time Christmas gifts have gone out, I will have made (or arranged the making of!) about 20 gifts. :)

  30. Dell December 12, 2011 at 8:06 am

    I had good intentions, but I only have made 2 gifts so far.

  31. Taryn December 12, 2011 at 8:07 am

    I have made none! I have got 6 projects cut up and ready to sew, but my sewing machine decided to break. Just got it back from the shop, so hopefully I can finish before Christmas!

  32. Sunni @Love Affiar with my Brother December 12, 2011 at 8:07 am

    I’ve made 3! I had much more in mind, but I just ran out of time!

  33. Amanda S. December 12, 2011 at 8:07 am

    Hmmm…a couple art canvases for sure. I gave one each to my friends daughters.

  34. Sara December 12, 2011 at 8:08 am

    I crocheted quite a few star ornaments to attach to gifts. I also crocheted four hats and two scarves! I wish I could have done more but I ran out of time! Thanks for the chance to win this little quilt, it is gorgeous!

  35. charlotte @ twelfthzodiac December 12, 2011 at 8:10 am

    I think this little quilt counts as 1 for you!
    I have made 7 so far, still have a quilt to finish up to make 8! It’s more than I thought I’d finish, actually. I feel good about it :)

  36. audrey December 12, 2011 at 8:10 am

    I haven’t made a single one! I did get a couple pinterest inspired crafts done with my kiddos so I don’t feel too bad. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  37. Vicki W December 12, 2011 at 8:13 am

    What an adorable quilt! I make most of my gifts every year. It’s just something I enjoy doing. This year I made homemade jam to go with sets of potholders and screen printed tea towels. I still have one last gift to make: a set of Angry Birds for my niece.

  38. Deserae Fiedler December 12, 2011 at 8:18 am

    I have made two half presents so far! Lol. Hopefully they will be finished for Christmas!

  39. Lori December 12, 2011 at 8:19 am

    I have made 2 quilts and three little gifts for friends at work.

  40. Liz December 12, 2011 at 8:21 am

    What a cute quilt, I know a little girl who’d love it for Christmas. Well, would you count 3 elf costumes and hats for my teenage sons friends? Last year I made 2 outfits for their Tuba Christmas performance and Will and his friend stole the show. This year he asked me if I could make 3 more so the 5 tuba players could match! Being a doting mum with 24 hours notice, I did – thank goodness for felt! That’s it so far.

  41. Kimberly December 12, 2011 at 8:22 am

    I have made 4 items- 3 stockings, and a quilt!

  42. tonya lemos December 12, 2011 at 8:22 am

    I am getting there about 5 so far…….still several to go and inspiration lacking!

  43. Joanna December 12, 2011 at 8:26 am

    So far, none, but I do plan on making a bunch for my kids. At least, that’s my intention!!

  44. Megan December 12, 2011 at 8:30 am

    I had very good intentions on making both my mother and mother-in-law quilts, my kids floor cushions, and my daughter a kitchen using and old tv stand! So far I have neither completed or started for that matter anything!!

  45. Kristin December 12, 2011 at 8:33 am

    So far i’ve only made 2. I have about 15 to go…. Hoping they all get done :) my husband has been out of town working, & my 2 year old is sick. Off to the sewing room…..
    Loooooove the doll quilt!!

  46. Erin Marie December 12, 2011 at 8:35 am

    I love that quilt. It’s so pretty!

    This year I have made… Well, I guess I’m just making one present. It’s a wall hanging and has the binding attached but not finished. I really need to get on that… I still have to ship it.

  47. Cindy Sharp December 12, 2011 at 8:38 am

    Home made gifts…..not necessarily for Christmas giving

    3 baby quilts
    3 Christmas throws
    3 twin size quilts
    8 snap bags

    And I’m half way through a scarf.

    I love your mini. It is a great use of the little birds.

  48. pammalammadingdong December 12, 2011 at 8:40 am

    zero. But I STILL HAVE 2 WEEKS!

  49. Carla V. December 12, 2011 at 8:43 am

    Do birthdays count? If we include those then I have made 6 gifts total. I kept my Christmas gifts this year to a minimal because I wanted to really enjoy the season.

  50. Holly December 12, 2011 at 8:49 am

    I haven’t stopped to count, but I had a week off from work last week, and know I made at least 20 gifts during that time! Your little quilt is so pretty!

  51. Shannon C. December 12, 2011 at 8:50 am

    I’ve lost count of how many gifts I’ve made this year (most of them in the last month). They’ve mostly been fairly small (crochet ornaments and mug rugs) but the number in the 30-40 range. That doll quilt is adorable and I’d love to win it! Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

  52. Tammy December 12, 2011 at 8:55 am

    I have sewn ZERO, but you should see the pile next to my sewing machine! Maybe ask again next week at this time ;-)

    Tammy ~@~

  53. Mary C in WA December 12, 2011 at 8:55 am

    If I count the Beaded ornaments I made for the grandchildren I’ve made 47 gifts. It made quite a dent in my Stash to make 17 of those gifts.

  54. Linda Coleman December 12, 2011 at 8:56 am

    I’ve managed to make three gifts so far (not bad for me)

  55. Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts December 12, 2011 at 8:58 am

    This is adorable Amy. I love the colors and the birds. Thanks for the chance to win.
    So far I have made 3 gifts and have two more under way. :) Merry Christmas!

  56. Rachel B December 12, 2011 at 8:59 am

    haven’t made christmas gifts but did make a baby gift this year.

  57. Julie December 12, 2011 at 9:02 am

    well i’m still going!, but i’ve made, teatowels 6, heatpacks 3 and some of jeni’s drawstring pouches!

  58. Lynda Brown December 12, 2011 at 9:02 am

    I’m really quite embarrassed to say….none….this year. I have vowed to start in January this next year so I’ll be prepared for next Christmas. My favorite Christmas of gift giving is when I made a Christmas decoration each month for each of our 8 children. It was so fun to see the bins filling up each month with Santas, angels, reindeer, aprons, Baby Jesus, pillows, garlands and more.

  59. Mruna December 12, 2011 at 9:02 am

    I made a clutch for the SMS giveaway day…I’m counting that as a gift! Otherwise none!

  60. Liz December 12, 2011 at 9:08 am

    I have made 7 gifts, and I am working on 3 or 4 more :)

  61. Mary on Lake Pulaski December 12, 2011 at 9:09 am

    I’ve made seven gifts this year!

  62. Susan December 12, 2011 at 9:11 am

    I am in awe of your quilt-so beautiful!
    So far this year I have 3 half finished projects. I am determined to finish one this evening! (determined should be underlined and bolded!)

  63. Melissa December 12, 2011 at 9:11 am

    I have managed to make around 10 handmade gifts so far and I am still working on them. I will probably be working on them right up until Christmas eve the way it looks. Thanks and good luck to all.

  64. kate December 12, 2011 at 9:11 am

    So far I have made 1 1/2 – hope so much, it will be 2 before Christmas. ;-)

  65. Bonnie @ Pink Stitches December 12, 2011 at 9:15 am

    Yes, I totally want this! Um lets see… My initial plan was to make everybody a handmade gift this year. That didn’t quite work out. I think I only made 2 or 3. Oh well, next year I’ll get started six months in advance! haha

  66. Susan December 12, 2011 at 9:16 am

    I am in awe of your quilt-so beautiful!
    So far this year I have 3 half finished projects. I am determined to finish one this evening (determined should be underlined and bolded!)

  67. Jane December 12, 2011 at 9:16 am

    Well I managed a wall hanging for a friends fortieth and a naming day gift – but as for Christmas it is merely a pile of WIP’s (and a couple of Still-in-My-Head’s!)

  68. Zina :: Let's Lasso the Moon December 12, 2011 at 9:18 am

    I am absolutely smitten with those lovely birds. This year I have only made one gift so far, but I am working on some fun holiday cards with my girls. We are sewing cut out hearts onto blank whiet cards, so cute.

  69. Jessica @ Sunny Tuesday December 12, 2011 at 9:20 am

    Let’s see, how many have I planned to make or how many have I actually made? :) I planned to make a couple for my daughter and they are still sitting, waiting to be made. Hopefully this week!

  70. Trish December 12, 2011 at 9:23 am

    I’m impressed with everyone’s numbers so far! I’ve finished about 8 gifts, and 5 more to go.

  71. Teresa December 12, 2011 at 9:25 am

    I made four sets of placemats and a baby quilt. And I am DONE! Thank goodness. The doll quilt is adorable!!

  72. Jon December 12, 2011 at 9:26 am

    I have been busy in my new woodshop (consisting of a sander, scroll saw, patience, and scavenged wood) to make wooden toy cars for my new son. I hope he likes them as much as I’ve enjoyed making them. thanks for the chance to enter.

  73. montse December 12, 2011 at 9:28 am

    If we are talking about Xmas gifts, I’ve done 5 but I still have one quilt to finish…. so many things and so little time.
    Terrific giveaway, love the quilt!

  74. Linda Winters December 12, 2011 at 9:32 am

    I’ve managed to make one quilt and enough hand lotion for 7 or 8 friends.

  75. Pat @ Color Me Quilty December 12, 2011 at 9:33 am

    Well, if you count the 17 Christmas stockings, I’ve made about 25 presents.

  76. Heather December 12, 2011 at 9:34 am

    I’ve made 3 gifts this year!! Two aprons, and a set of potholders. :)

  77. ohdessa December 12, 2011 at 9:39 am

    I’ve managed to make 2 this year and hope to finish a couple more.

  78. Andria @ McGreen Experience December 12, 2011 at 9:41 am

    Wait while I count on my fingers….ok I’m up to 14, but I’ve got one on the go just now. I LOVE your mini quilt!

  79. Kristie December 12, 2011 at 9:42 am

    I’ve managed to make quite a few gifts, but I started a couple months ago. My kids are getting new outfits, hats, pillowcases, pjs, etc. Friends and teachers are getting felt broaches, fabric button necklaces, appliqued shirts, clutches, homemade lip balm, etc. It’s been a lot of work, but fun!

  80. Katrin December 12, 2011 at 9:44 am

    I made about 10 so far, but must make lots more still. Great quilt!

  81. Manda December 12, 2011 at 9:45 am

    Erm… 5 I think! Love the mini quilt!

  82. Kristin December 12, 2011 at 9:55 am

    wow, such a sweet quilt. I’m making a shawl for an x mas gift. that’s it.

  83. Kathrynn December 12, 2011 at 9:56 am

    I have finished one and 1/4 Christmas gifts. But I should be able to finish that one and another before Christmas

  84. sarah December 12, 2011 at 9:57 am

    None. Just not going to happen this year with a super needy five month old. Thanks for the giveaway!

  85. deborah b. December 12, 2011 at 9:57 am

    so far, i’ve finished a soft toy house. i’ve (almost) finished a quilt all but the binding, and a sweater aside from 1/2 of a sleeve and the front button placket. :-)

    i would love to win this gorgeous quilt. thank you for the chance!

  86. Rane December 12, 2011 at 9:58 am

    all of them but my son wants a few games for his DS..
    we will see. With 6 kiddos I have to make everything or it
    would be too much in this economy. Also it means so much
    to know mom made these for you.
    Have a great holiday and thank you for considering us.

  87. Rebecca December 12, 2011 at 10:05 am

    I have two gifts almost done, two cut out, and I might start on one or two more.

  88. Suzanne Maestas Jourdan December 12, 2011 at 10:11 am

    I have only made gifts for my soon to arrive nephew! All other handmade gifts I had in mind went to the back burner! I am hoping one day to make gifts throughout the year and not try to get them done between Thanksgiving and Christmas!

  89. Teje December 12, 2011 at 10:12 am

    Oh what a beautiful quilt! Thank you for sharing! I have made so many gifts that i can’t count … this year all the presents have been hand made!

  90. Sarita December 12, 2011 at 10:12 am

    I would love to win this! Right now I am working on a lunch tote for my BF! I’m a beginner, so hopefully it turns out nice lol!

  91. Leona December 12, 2011 at 10:13 am

    This year is a handmade holiday for me. I have been unable to find a good job since moving up north to live with my sister. (she has Ovarian Cancer) Unfortunately shopping is not an option this year…Most of my friends and family will be receiving handmade gifts..(table runners, coasters, potholders and even a few quilts..)The move has been very humbling, but I treasure each moment spent with my family!

  92. Cathie December 12, 2011 at 10:13 am

    I’m 90% done with the first gift. Hoping to make more things!

  93. Jenn December 12, 2011 at 10:16 am

    Do you count half completed gifts? I have finished one pillow, have 4 pairs of pants halfway done, and much more in the works. oh, I also made a coffee sleeve and a couple coasters for a gift exchange this weekend (and cocoa in a jar)…. that makes 5 completed projects and just as many unfinished ones.

  94. Ella December 12, 2011 at 10:19 am

    at least 10 for Xmas.

  95. kathy h December 12, 2011 at 10:21 am

    I have made about 20 gifts this year as they are all small. About 12 pillowcases and 8 zipper bags. I made also one wall hanging. DIdn’t get everything done that I wanted to but at least made a dent. Thanks for the chance to win that beautiful little quilt. Love the birds on it.

  96. Gidget December 12, 2011 at 10:21 am

    I have completed three gifts and working on number 4.
    One gift was a big one for me ‘quilt with matching pillow case and throw pillows’ so glad to have that one finished!

  97. Rachel L December 12, 2011 at 10:22 am

    None – but only because I’m busy trying to keep my house clean because we’re trying to sell it. Actually, I haven’t done any Christmas preparation – eeek!!! Love your quilt.

  98. Judith (from Israel) December 12, 2011 at 10:23 am

    I’ve made dozens of mosaic-covered boxes and pencil holders, which I give filled with chocolates.

  99. Vanessa December 12, 2011 at 10:25 am

    The biggest gift this year is a puff for my nephew! Appart from that I made some xmas cards, and all my family will get homemade olives and almonds this year!
    I love this quilt!

  100. Bobbi December 12, 2011 at 10:28 am

    None! I’m hoping to take a pieced top and get the quilt done to give to my grandma. That would need to be done in 2 nights, before vacation starts on Friday. Can I do it? Only if the bipolar express is on an “up swing” one of these nights!

  101. Kylie C December 12, 2011 at 10:30 am

    I’m currently impressed with myself since I have 4 gifts made (usually I’d have about 10 partly done at this point) and only 3 more to go. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  102. jen December 12, 2011 at 10:31 am

    I’ve made 7… I think it’s 7… A few more to go yet though

  103. Hallie December 12, 2011 at 10:34 am

    So far I’ve made six gifts. This is more than last year or any other year so far. WOO-HOO!

    Your mini quilt is just darling, thanks for the chance to win.

  104. Amber H. December 12, 2011 at 10:36 am

    Well, I made my baby a quilt before he was born, and I made my daughters some stuffy toys as a ‘just because’ present. So that makes it a grand total of three. Not impressive I know, but three is better than none!

  105. Amy O December 12, 2011 at 10:40 am

    Finished Gifts: 0
    STARTED: 2…..ok, so one I started LAST year but I’m still hoping to finish it! :)

  106. adriane December 12, 2011 at 10:41 am

    Somehow this year I managed to make at least one handmade thing for everyone in my family…. it only took me starting in August to get it done!
    Thanks for the chance!

  107. KellyS December 12, 2011 at 10:41 am

    Oh goodness. I made 4 things for birthdays, but so far nothing is finished for Christmas. I want to make 4 more things, at least… with time ticking down. Love your quilt, I hope I win!

  108. Jerimi December 12, 2011 at 10:47 am

    What a cute quilt!

    I made three gifts this year, but only because I started in July. :P

    We decided we were going to refocus the holiday, and go gift-free for the most part. We sent out postcards to family in November, and invited them to play along with us. It takes so much of the pressure off, and gives us enough slack in the budget that we can actually go and visit relatives in person. I think that’s better than a physical gift, for the most part. :)

    Good luck on your contest! I hope you get a million comments.

  109. Lucy @ Charm About You December 12, 2011 at 10:49 am

    I’ve made 10 so far but need to make about 15 total!! better get sewing…

  110. Meredith December 12, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Gorgeous mini quilt! Love the colors you combined!

    I’ve made about 10 gifts– the most unique has got to be for my mother-in-law though! It’s a purse with a compartment for her handgun! She has a conceal-carry permit and wanted a hidden/easy access compartment for the gun. Very unusual for me to sew something with firearms in mind! Oye!

  111. Renae December 12, 2011 at 10:53 am

    The biggie for me is that all 5 pairs of pajama bottoms and matching rice packs are done for my kids. The rest that I get done will just be the icing on the cake.

  112. Justine December 12, 2011 at 10:58 am

    I don’t have the ##s yet – I’m still sewing!!! LOL

  113. Shirley December 12, 2011 at 10:59 am

    Almost a half and it isn’t even very big! I really should get it done.

  114. Diane December 12, 2011 at 11:04 am

    Ha! Great question. I don’t think I’ve made any yet. Though I have probably at least 6 I need to make. How many days do I have still? ;)

    Love your mini! It’s perfect!

    I’m giving stuff away too! Feel free to stop by! from blank pages…

  115. Shevvy December 12, 2011 at 11:06 am

    One bag for my niece and that was a last minute decision.

  116. Christine Jones December 12, 2011 at 11:06 am

    I’ve made about 6 gifts so far but I have plans to make closer to 10. If you want to see them I have them on my blog. I love making stuff!! And this quilt is so cute :)

  117. Liz Lewis December 12, 2011 at 11:10 am

    Lovely website! I’ve made quite a few soy tea cup candles and if good intentions are anything – the kids and I are going to make rudolph gingerbread cookies for my nieces and nephews!

  118. Melinda December 12, 2011 at 11:11 am

    I have two in process. Hopefully they’ll be ready on time!

  119. Gina C. December 12, 2011 at 11:15 am

    Sadly, I have made ZERO gifts this year, though planning on doing some baking for teacher gifts.

  120. Melanie T December 12, 2011 at 11:21 am

    I have made about 5. Still working on it!

  121. Maria Andrade December 12, 2011 at 11:22 am

    I would have to say just one…I have made a pretty sweet ornament wreath for the holidays!

  122. Jo December 12, 2011 at 11:27 am

    Only 2! I’m going to make more, I promise!

  123. Meghan December 12, 2011 at 11:28 am

    I’m half-way through 3 gifts and hoping to get them done! One’s a quilted tote-bag, one is a sock-monkey hat, and one a crocheted koala.

  124. karen peachey December 12, 2011 at 11:28 am

    Hmm, I’ve made a grand total of 0 & plan to make 4 yet!!

  125. Tylynn December 12, 2011 at 11:28 am

    I have made 2 twin sized quilts, 1 full sized quilt, a small Christmas quilt (not done yet), 4 skirts, 4 matching hairbows, 5 notebook/crayon holders, a HUGE beanbag, and a few wood projects. I started before Halloween to get it all done. I lvoe making things this year!

  126. Becky December 12, 2011 at 11:33 am

    I actually made 9 presents this year – that’s an all time record for me!

  127. lee December 12, 2011 at 11:33 am

    I have made 8 gifts which was good for me! thanks for the lovely giveaway.

  128. Debbie M December 12, 2011 at 11:34 am

    Haven’t made any and don’t think I will be! So there! We’re in good company.

  129. fayelle December 12, 2011 at 11:34 am

    I’ve made 5! Wish I had time to make more!

  130. Kathy Grant December 12, 2011 at 11:41 am

    5 down, 5 to go – thank goodness I left the easy ones to last!

  131. deb December 12, 2011 at 11:43 am

    The last two years I made all our gifts, but this year has been so terrible because of all the earthquakes, so I brought things that other people made and that has been fun. I am making an explorers bag for our 9 year old which we are filling with things like binoculars, magnifying glass, compass etc and I’m making a pile of mattresses for a doll bed that I thrifted for the Princess and the Pea for our 2 year old! Seems achievable!

  132. Mina December 12, 2011 at 11:44 am

    What a charming mini-quilt!

    I hate to say it, but the answer is none. I had been having inspiration block lately, but late this year I started having tons of ideas and created some new quilts for me. (It seems that I don’t have any for myself!) Somehow the time just got away from me and now its almost Christmas.

  133. Pam @ Antique or Not December 12, 2011 at 11:48 am

    What a cute little quilt! I’m ashamed to say that my answer would be “none”, but if you ask me again this time next year I hope the answer will be quite different. ;o)


  134. Susan December 12, 2011 at 11:48 am

    I’ve made just 1 gift this year – yikes!

  135. Heidi December 12, 2011 at 11:49 am

    I’ve managed to make seven so far, but I need to hurry up because I have six more to make! :)

  136. Jill @ ThatMoxieGirl Designs December 12, 2011 at 11:50 am

    I’ve made 3 gifts this year. If I pull off a Christmas mirable it will be 8 total!

  137. Lauranie December 12, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    Beautiful quilt!! Can I count gifts made even if they weren’t for Christmas??!!! I usually make all of my children’s friends’ birthday gifts…they tend to get done on time, whereas my family Christmas gifts are given out between Christmas and New Year’s!! HA! Thanks for the chance..have fun with your giveaway!!

  138. Alisa December 12, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    Only 2! A coaster set and a pillow. Sad but true. Thank you for the wonderful give away chance. Happy Holidays!

  139. Michele December 12, 2011 at 12:13 pm

    I am always making gifts for family and friends… I can’t begin to count them all but I would average it out to say one a month. Thanks for the chance this sweet little quilt is very pretty and I must tell you that I have a ‘thing’ for birds!!! (hint, hint)

  140. British American December 12, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    I don’t think I’ve managed to make any this year – partly because we have a 9 month old and so my craft time is limited. I did make him some baby legs and I made his brother a bow-tie. And I did just recently make my friend a taggy blanket for her new baby. :)

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  141. Katy December 12, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    Oh how gorgeous, thanks for the chance to win! I’m 2 1/2 pressies down, 2 1/2 to go :)

  142. Jenn Guymon December 12, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    What a beautiful quilt!! I haven’t made anything for Christmas, but there were a few things I made during the year for birthdays. Thanks for the giveaway!

  143. Patti December 12, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    Oh my goodness! That is just so beautiful. Thanks for the opportunity to win it.
    I was very productive this year. I had no excuse not to be….retired!
    I made about 10 projects!

  144. Suzanne December 12, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    Hi! I’ve made about a dozen gifts over the course of the year. It’s fun to make and give away, isn’t it? Thanks for the giveaway.

  145. Jodi December 12, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    Just lovely….I’ve made quite a few gifts, maybe 10? I should do a little inventory to find out for sure.

  146. KD-Quilts December 12, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    I have made 9 and have 2 more in the works. After that I’m calling it good! Thanks for the chance to win your mini. I would look fab hanging in my sewing area!

  147. emily December 12, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    managed to already make and deliver only two. still working on two.
    I have allowed myself to not make as much this year as usually because we are moving this week! aggggh!

  148. Hayley jones December 12, 2011 at 12:39 pm

    I’ve made none :( but am getting my knitting needles and sewing machine for Christmas so next year will be a different story :)

  149. Shaivite December 12, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    Nothing yet, but I have 20 mason jars waiting to be filled with yummy gifts.

  150. Joan December 12, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    I have made about 10 gifts so far this year!

  151. Katherine Fye December 12, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    Well, I hate to say this, but since it never dawns on me that we need Christmas presents until…December…I don’t usually make any for that year. I am giving a couple of things that I made last year though! :)

  152. Lora December 12, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    Hmmm, I have tons of ideas of stuff still to do. I will say though, I have made a total of 50 contact paper sun catchers to give to a nursing home with my Brownie troop this weekend. I am also in the process of making 50 salt dough ornaments for them to paint for our party this weekend as well.

  153. Hannah December 12, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    So far I have managed to make nothing! Shameful. I’ve been very busy at work, but I hope to get a couple of little things made by Christmas. Thank you for the giveaway!

  154. Sophia December 12, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    I am giving handmade gift this year, but they were not made by me.

  155. Erin B December 12, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    Only 1 made so far but hopefully 5 or more by the end of our Christmas celebrations – 2 scarves, stuffed dragon, felt food, and a tie blanket.

  156. Leo December 12, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    you ask about how many are done – I am absolutely amazed by a finished “what-to-make-for-whom”-list. well I did 1 so far.

  157. Allison December 12, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    None, sadly. I have a baby and haven’t recovered my crafting mojo yet! Thanks so much for the chance–did I mention I LOVE birds?

  158. tara December 12, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Great giveaway Amy! I think I have made about 20 things so far (11 are pillowcases).

  159. Lara December 12, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    haha about 1/2 done with my first one – many, many more to go!

  160. Ramanda December 12, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Some appliqued tea towels and pillow cases are on my list to still get done.

  161. Cheryl December 12, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    I’ve finished 7 quilts and have 5 more tops waiting for quilting.
    p.s. I love your binding tutorial. I used it for my last 3 quilts – so easy.

  162. Michelle December 12, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    I have to say, this quilt is gorgeous! It would match my little lady’s bedroom perfectly! :) As for handmade Christmas gifts; I have completed just 1! I have 6 more that I *hope* to complete! I guess I should be sewing instead of entering giveaway, eh? ;)

    daydreambelievershop {at} gmail {dot} com

  163. Michelle S. December 12, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    None! I do feel a little bad, but I have kids’ and that’s my excuse! Thanks for the chance, I loooove birds. :)

  164. Ally Moll December 12, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    Sadly only one, but I did purchase two handmade gifts at a local art fair.

  165. nicke December 12, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    oh my, i have managed to finish one so far. i better get my butt in gear!

  166. Valerie December 12, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    So far…ONE! lol – cross-stitched the bib on a DMC ready-made ‘stitch-a-teddie’ kit stuffed animal kit – Sombunny to Love – for my 2-yr old great niece! Have 2 half-finished holiday gifts that with any luck will make it for 2012 gifting!

  167. Jill B December 12, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Wow! Gorgeous little quilt! I’ve so far made about 4 presents, with about 50 to go!

  168. Pattie Wall December 12, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    I have painted a dog portrait for my in-laws who have absolutely everything..but my dog portrait of their little Lucky, of course! Love your blog!

  169. Cinnamon December 12, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    I started early this year and have made 2 knitted softies, 1 little wallet, 2 sets of solstice jammies, 2 knitted hats, 1 pair of fingerless mitts and a few other things that I’ve already forgotten! Lovely giveaway. My girl is getting her first doll this Christmas and the doll quilt would be perfect for it!

  170. Eilidh December 12, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    I’ve made 2 Christmas gifts so far, 3 more to do. I’ve also made 4 birthday gifts in the last couple on months so feeling pleased with myself! Love the wee birdie quilt thank you for the chance to win.

  171. Emme Wood December 12, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    I’ve made one… a scarf I crocheted for my niece. :)

  172. Emily December 12, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    I think I am up to 5 gifts so far. I hope to get a few more in! Love your little quilt!

  173. Patricia Price December 12, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Hello and thanks for this opportunity. I love the bird fabric. I have made four birthday quilts and three halloween quilts and 2 Christmas quilts; all gifts to family members.

  174. Vickie December 12, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    I have made 2 so far! I hope to get more done!
    Thanks for a chance! Happy Holidays!

  175. the sewing dork December 12, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    I didn’t count how many, but I proudly made something for everyone on my list!

  176. Lisa December 12, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    This year I think only 1 present is handmade. Last year probably 50% of them were…guess I just didn’t plan ahead as much this Christmas.
    Love the little quilt by the way!

  177. Jane December 12, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Love this!! So far, my answer is zero…but …oh there will be many, I hope… :)

  178. Marci Girl December 12, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    As of right this moment, I have finished 4 and have 2 more to get done….

  179. Heather December 12, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    What a gorgeous little quilt. I’ve made several gifts this year, but not quite as many as I would have liked.

  180. Sonia B December 12, 2011 at 2:14 pm

    I’ve made a couple of little eye-spy quilts and finished up a couple of WIP quilts. I keep getting more ideas and will probably be working well into Chirstmas Eve night. Thanks for the chance at your lovely quilt.

  181. Missy Perez December 12, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    None right now but I have plans for at least three… we’ll see what happens the holidays are always so chaotic!

  182. Missy Perez December 12, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    None right now but more I hope!

  183. Liz December 12, 2011 at 2:28 pm

    What a lovely and bright little mini quilt!
    This year I’ve made 5 gifts, and hopefully will have four more done by year’s end.

  184. Beatriz December 12, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    I am a recent mum and a working girl so my time is very limited!
    But i managed to do two presents por this Christmas!

  185. Michelle December 12, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    Oooh that quilt is so pretty! So far I have made three gifts, an apron for my little cousin, dress up bird wings costume for my eldest daughter and a felt board for my youngest daughter.

  186. seeks December 12, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    Only three or four as yet. :( Got about the eight more I want to get done. Ay yay yay.

  187. Jess December 12, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    What a lovely quilt! It’d go great with the Waldorf style doll I’m making for my daughter for Christmas!

    I’ve made several gifts throughout the year. For Christmas I’m attempting two full-sized quilts, two stuffed robots and a Waldorf doll. EEP! Why am I entering giveaways when I need to be sewing?!?


  188. Kimberly December 12, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    I am making one gift this year. But I started it in Feb and it’s almost finished. It because a Christmas gift because it has taken me so long! It was supposed to be a birthday gift but that’s long past. :) Thank you for the giveaway, the quilt is lovely!

  189. Sherry J. December 12, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    I have made two quilts and one table runner as gifts for Christmas and have more planned. so much to do and so little time.

  190. Ashley December 12, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    I absolutely love this quilt. Not only would I enjoy it, but my best friend would love it as well. Sadly, I have not made any homemade gifts this year. But, there are still several weeks left… :)

  191. Christy Dixon December 12, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Not ONE!! I did so good last year, starting right after Christmas and working all year long and I had beautiful quilts, purses, pillows and wall hangings for each family member and a cute new dress for my granddaughter. This year? I bought all of my fabrics, had it all mapped out… and they are covering the top of my machine. So sad. But if I start in 2 weeks, maybe there’s hope for next year?

  192. Jayme C December 12, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    I think I’m up to about 15? But that’s gonna come to a stand still pretty soon here…possibly even, today. Thanks for the giveaway!

  193. Peggy Grow December 12, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    I love doll quilts! And birds! So those two things together = wonderful!

  194. Heidi Anderson December 12, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    My sister and I have started a tradition between our two families to exchange only handmade gifts. It is challening but so rewarding! I am currently working on my third one.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  195. Robyn December 12, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Please hold while I consult my spreadsheet…I have made 7 gifts, and I have 5 left to make. Thanks for the giveaway! robyn(dot)geddes(at)gmail(dot)com

  196. Taryn Oakley December 12, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    Well, I have finished6, but have a few more on the way!

  197. Victoria December 12, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    Everyone is getting something handmade, so…6 grandchildren, 4 children, three DIL & SILs, friends, family, the dogs, and their friends. The answer is eleventy-hundred!

  198. Emily December 12, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Um… I’d have to count…. 15? I think I might be forgetting some. I’ve been sewing like a crazy person — but all projects I enjoy so it’s not really work!

  199. Flying Blind December 12, 2011 at 3:20 pm

    I’ve made too many – the felt ornament love is now wearing thin!

  200. Elaine December 12, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    I’ve made about 4 gifts!! Little necklaces, so easy, inexpensive but very pretty!! This is the first year that I have made such nice gifts that were actually gift worthy!!!

  201. Binks December 12, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    I think I’m at about 5. I also have made gifts have yet to give them to their owner. I don’t know how that happens because usually you procrastinate in doing the project…

  202. Amanda December 12, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    I think I’ve managed 9 this year, though most of a particularly small size. Your quilt is beautiful!

  203. tiffany December 12, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    so lovely! my daughter would flip for that… and so would her dolls! beautiful blog too. handmade this year? bunches & bunches… i do my best to only give handmade gifts year-round. that’s one of the reasons i love giveaway day so much – always fantastic inspiration! thanks for the chance!

  204. Sandy December 12, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    3 gifts finished but I have almost 2 weeks yet!

  205. pam w December 12, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    only managed 2 this year to busy with grandbabies

  206. Bronwyn December 12, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    That bird print is one of my all time favourites!! So pretty – being sick for last 3 weeks so no sewing going on round here – having withdrawals!

  207. Beth December 12, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    I will say three and a half . . . and I really need to get that last one finished! It is an important one . . .

  208. Jo Anne December 12, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    27, and I think I’ll stop there. Well, maybe one or two more.

  209. Kim December 12, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    I’ve finished 3 (small ones), two bird ornaments for the teachers and a covered notebook for my mom. There’s still time, I’d like to sneak in a few more!

    Love your bird quilt! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

  210. Eron December 12, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    I’ve made jam… which counts for at least 36 little gifts :) And am 9/10 of the way through my first quilt!

  211. Beth H December 12, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    11 wonder I am tired.

  212. Kiera December 12, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    I’ve made quilts and pillowcases for my niece and nephew, a baby quilt for a friend and probably a few more that I can’t remember!

  213. Vanessa Bershatsky December 12, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    Unfortunately, none. I am a crafter wannabe! Thank goodness there are other people out there who are willing to sell their beautiful crafts to me for gift giving!

  214. Parthena Wollen December 12, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    I had all these ideas and got none of them done. I have three young kids I chase around. Good excuse I think.

  215. Amber December 12, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    I’ve made one: a quilt for my son :)

  216. Sarah N December 12, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    Well –
    1 gift is finished and about 10 left in progress. Need to get busy!

    Thanks for the great giveaway! The quilt is adorable!

  217. Kristen Powell December 12, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    Gorgeous!! I have made about 6 gifts so far and about 10 more on the list! I must get going!!

  218. karli December 12, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    so far i have managed to make 4 homemade gifts this year and am in the process of making 4 more :)

  219. Jamie December 12, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    I have made a ton of gifts, just none for Christmas. I think if I had to guess somewhere between 10-20 (many of my friends had babies this year, thus a lot of baby quilts). I love your doll quilt, the colors are stunning!

  220. Andrea C December 12, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    1/4? haha. i am working on placemats for my mom but they are only 25% done!

  221. Lisa Pope December 12, 2011 at 5:27 pm

    I have made the vast majority of my gifts..knitted, sewn and crocheted! Still more to make!

  222. Kara December 12, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    I have crafted 2 gifts, but I am baking a lot more – treat towers for 6 families.

  223. Mary December 12, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    I’ve made two sugar scrubs for the preschool teachers!

  224. Betty December 12, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    I have not made any gifts this year- but there’s still time!

  225. Kelli H. December 12, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    So far…none. But I do have 3 sewing projects (stocking, drawstring bag, and car seat canopy) to attend to before the 25th. I have no idea if I’ll be able to finish them before Christmas.

  226. jojoebi December 12, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    I have made about half of them, including a darth vadar quilt for my husband that I finished last night

  227. Sharon December 12, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    I finished up my ORB hexagon quilt for my niece. Still hoping to make a few pouches though….Thanks for the giveaway!

  228. Sandra Davidson December 12, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    I have made about 10 gifts which I will not list because I just don;t have the time.

  229. Lynne December 12, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    Hmm, let me see: I made two quilts for my grandsons just for being alive, change mats for both of them, and a cushion (pillow) for my sister for Christmas. And I’m in the process of making curtains for my grandson’s bedroom – that’s a gift of tiem and saved money for my DD!

  230. Sissy December 12, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    Wow! I just went thru my photo files and counted close to 20 quilts made (mostly completed)to be given away this year. I also made set of potholders, 2 pleated pouches, I neck scarf, and a set of drapes for my daughter’s salon.I give away what I make and then forget what I did. I really did accomplish alot this year.

  231. sangeetha December 12, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    None – we are not gifting as much this year

  232. Rachel December 12, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    I’ve managed to complete about 8 gifts so far this year and still have a couple left to make. I’m just waiting for sock monkey socks to arrive by mail…and they’re taking forever!

    That is a beautiful little quilt. I can’t believe you’re willing to part with it. I sure hope it finds its way to my house!

  233. MarciaW December 12, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    None for Christmas yet if say for the entire year have made about six smaller quilts – baby quilts, charity lap quilts, and one for my Mom. I also helped my Mom with an oversized deer quilt (to be bound) for my niece’s husband as a Christmas gift.

  234. Jamie lee December 12, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    Wow I love the birds!!!
    I have made a ton of gifts…jam for everyone on my list, 3 quilts, pillows for boyyh my daughter’s teachers, and several sets of pillowcases. Plus homemade dog biscuits for all the dog lovers I know.

  235. Jessica December 12, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    I don’t do christmas…but I can tell you that this year I have made 6 gifts for teachers, and 5 other gifts for babies and thank you’s or just because gifts!

  236. Kerri December 12, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    So far I’ve made 8 items for Christmas. I have a couple more on my list, but don’t know if I’ll get to them :)

    The doll quilt is beautiful!

  237. Jenny December 12, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    I’ve only finished one, but i have big plans, lol! Thanks for the chance to win, it is lovely and I love anything with birds on it!

  238. Peggy Pullen December 12, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    Love it, love it, love it!
    This Christmas I have made 6 casserole carriers. I did glass etching on the dishes. I also made 2 small quilts as gifts.
    Oh, I also made some dog treat bags for my dog owning friends.

  239. margaret December 12, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    So far this year? I’ve managed to cut out my daughter’s pj’s I wanted to give her for Christmas.

    Christmas is less than 2 weeks away, huh?

  240. Stacy Smith December 12, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    I haven’t been able to make anything, but I have taken things and refurbished/cleaned them up. My daughters will love their gifts…I hope.

  241. Cathy Byrd December 12, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Lots of gifts I have made this year, but I didn’t keep track. Surely do stay busy though.
    Trying to learn to be discerning and that it is OK to say no every once in a while.
    LOVE the birds and the tiny quilt. Surely do hope I win it – since I am a “Byrd”.

  242. Rebecca Chatham December 12, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    In process–8ish.
    Keep your fingers crossed.

  243. maria December 12, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    I’ve made gifts for 5 little girls in our family. i’m currently working on adults.

  244. Jeannie D December 12, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    I have knitted 4 scarves, 6 birdseed wreaths and made truckloads of cookies and candies to send to family and friends. I’m done.

  245. Bailey December 12, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Only one, a shirt for my son.

  246. Leigh December 12, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    I had such grand plans– And then I shattered my wrist in October :( I’ve just been able to start sewing a bit in the last couple of weeks, but needless to say there won’t be many handmade gifts this year. I do hope to finish a few outfits for my daughters’ and niece’s American Girl dolls though!

  247. Em December 12, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Er … parts of several … BUT THERE’S STILL TIME!!! AAAAUGH!!!

  248. Heidi December 12, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    I’ve made a few: a quilt for my daughter, another for my brother-in-law and his wife, scarves for my two older daughters, and soft blocks and a small play quilt for my nieces.

    Thanks for the giveaway — it’s a darling quilt!

  249. Tracey December 12, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    Now this is cute. I am making 4 quilts for Christmas gifts!!

  250. April in Autumn December 12, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    So far I’ve made 1 1/2, but I haven’t weaved in the ends so I’m not sure it counts…

  251. Heather Herbay December 12, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    I have managed to make one gift this year. it was a painting for my school’s PTA’s silent auction. Love the bird quilt!!
    -Heather Herbay

  252. Steph December 12, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    This year I haven’t made that many because our family has gone on a trip over seas but last year I made close to 24. This year it’s more like 6… 2 for each of my kids…hehe

    xo Steph

  253. Missy December 12, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    I made a rag quilt for my sister and a quilted wall hanging for my stepmother, and all the men are getting fudge. My husband wants a pair of pajamas, but I don’t know if I’ll have time.

  254. nancy December 12, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Oh I have lost count. I’ve made ornaments and little gifts. A set of place mats and I’m still not done. I think I put too much on my plate and end up stressing!

  255. Zoe December 12, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    I am in LOVE with that little quilt. I love all things birds this year.

    I have only made 1 thing for someone this year. I hope to make more, I just need to find the time. :)

  256. Brandie December 12, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    I honestly wasing going to make any this year but I broke down and am making my MIL a wall hanging. It’s halfway finished.

  257. lisa conant December 12, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    I’ve made 4 and a half, and hope to have 6 done by next week.


  258. Carla December 12, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    I’m in the process of making 6 pillowcases as gifts for the kids on my Christmas list… So when I’m done my # will be 6. Thanks for a chance to win this cute quilt! :)

  259. Megan December 12, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    I have made 5 gifts so far this year! With more to come. :)

  260. Jennifer Wingard December 12, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    By the time Christmas rolls around, I’ll have made over 50 gifts to give this year. That’s not counting the after Christmas gift exchange I have with online friends who (like me) just can’t get it all done before the big day.

  261. kristel December 12, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Wow, how gorgeous!

    I had big plans for handmade gifts, but all I finished were a bunch of Matryoshka doll ornaments for my family. Better than nothing, certainly!

  262. Amber Murray December 12, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    none, i hope to finsh 4 by christmas

  263. urbanhen December 12, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    This is embarrassing. My answer is zero. Intentions don’t equal finished projects, huh?

  264. Colby December 12, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Beautiful fabric and design! I’ve made one full quilt and two zip pouches for presents so far.

  265. Kimberly W. December 12, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    I have made 3 gifts so far. Hoping to make a couple of more after school gets out for break. Your quilt is adorable & my daughter would love to use it with her dollies. :o)

  266. Heather December 12, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    Not as many as I wanted but with young kids things don’t get finished as quickly!

  267. Skooks December 12, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    So far none. But I have 4 in mind and just haven’t had time to start. We’ll see!

  268. Desiree @ Wee Share December 12, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    this is beautiful!

    I made one big gift– a big crochet blanket for my daughter. I can’t wait to see her cuddled under it!!

  269. Anita December 12, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    None completed yet, but working on about 5. Thanks for the giveaway!

  270. Lindsay December 12, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    So far I have only completed one, but I have three in progress.

  271. Miranda December 12, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    I have 2 in progress and 2 more lined up. Maybe they’ll be “welcome to the New Year” gifts! Thanks for the beautiful giveaway!

  272. Melissa Babecka December 12, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    How many handmade gifts have I made? Zero, zip, zilch, nada…
    Maybe I’ll do better next year.
    Fingers crossed,
    Melissa B.

  273. Alison December 12, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    That is darling! It would go on my wall. Hmm, how many gifts have I made? So far, not many. But, I plan to make 4. We’ll see how it goes.
    aliben7 (at) gmail (dot) com

  274. Tamie December 12, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Unfortunately I have made none. That really stinks. Your giveaway is beautiful. Thanks for participating.

  275. Erika December 12, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    So far, none… But I still plan to make a few small stocking stuffers and fabric scarves for my mom and sister!

  276. Courtney Lund December 12, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    I am a teacher & have made all of my teacher friends a little treat, (a small bag filled with peanut butter kiss cookies–hmmm…) Thanks for the great giveaway!

  277. margaret December 12, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    Well, you can count this little quilt as a gift. I have made zero gifts myself, but I’m hoping to start on a quilt (!) tomorrow to be ready by Christmas day.

  278. Karen O December 12, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    I haven’t made any yet. But I bought the supplies needed to make some place mats and hopefully something for my dear daughter.

  279. knitgirl66 December 12, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    I have managed to make three gifts – and am knitting away at one more!

  280. tina December 12, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    I can’t believe you are able to give this quilt away – thank you for the great opportunity!

    So far, I am making one gift, but i WANT to make more – hope I will really make it.


  281. Caty December 12, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Dear Amy, this quilt is darling! I’ve been looking for some smaller quilting projects. I’ve finished 9 Christmas projects so far (a baby quilt, 6 small quilted zipper bags, a crocheted beard/face-warmer, and a woven basket). I’m hoping to make some quilted coasters ( and other odds and ends just in case. Thanks! Love, Caty

  282. Lu December 12, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    A crocheted angel for a Christmas treetop. A quilt for my granddaughter and a knitted sweater also.
    Thank you for the chance at your wonderful giveaway.

  283. Julie December 12, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    So far, one, and hoping to make so many more

  284. donna December 12, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    I have make one gift so far. Hopefully 3 more to finish!

  285. MissMary December 12, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    Aw dang. Throughout the year? Rough estimate is 7, but that seems low…

  286. Michell December 12, 2011 at 11:43 pm

    a few as I am in a lot of swaps

  287. Jolene December 13, 2011 at 12:11 am

    Honestly, I’ve sorta lost track. We’ve all learned to crochet (my little girls and I) so we’ve been doing that. Plus I’ve been sewing aprons…

  288. Mims December 13, 2011 at 12:15 am

    i love your hand quilting. i have not yet finished any handmade gifts, but i’m delusional enough to still think that i’m going to get atleast 4 done.

  289. Carmen Wyant December 13, 2011 at 12:17 am

    Love the doll quilt! let’s see, I did a king size quilt on commision & 6 Christmas stockings for the same woman, also on commision, so that cut down on my gift making considerably. But I did manage to do 5 baby quilts, a wedding quilt, and have made 3 more Christmas stockings for family, just have one more quilt to put binding on for Christmas gift. So I guess all in all that I got a LOT done for gifts this year.

  290. Heather December 13, 2011 at 12:43 am

    I’ve made none…yet! But I have a list of what to make and my fabrics mostly cut out.

  291. Chelle December 13, 2011 at 1:05 am

    15 so far!

  292. carriem December 13, 2011 at 1:17 am

    For Christmas, more than 15! I started early!

  293. leanne Watson December 13, 2011 at 1:30 am

    that is he cutest little quilt! I have made most of my gifts this year, from little dresses, to dolls to caramels!
    Thanks for sharing!

  294. Zoe December 13, 2011 at 2:46 am

    So far I’ve made about 25 fabric luggage tags for lots of friends who are going travelling, and I’m about to start on some knitted sushi for my mad Japanese Aunt. Oh, I also knitted my brother a beard beanie for his birthday!

  295. Eva December 13, 2011 at 3:10 am

    I’m doing pretty well this year and have managed to handmake something for evryone on my list! Love the quilt!

  296. Elisa December 13, 2011 at 3:41 am

    Your mini quilt is wonderful! I love those fabrics. Thanks for such a generous homemade giveaway opportunity. How many gifts have I made for this holiday? Let’s see, as of now, about 6 mug rugs, 8+ journal covers and fabric covered notepads (still making more) and six tissue cozies/small cell phone holders. But Im nowhere near done!

  297. Eerika December 13, 2011 at 4:04 am

    So far, I’ve managed to make a grand total of zero Christmas presents.
    I’ve almost finished a teddybear that I intend to give to my mum (she collects bears), but right now I’m not sure I can bear to let him go after all! I’m planning on making a little something for my friends too, but so far, I haven’t even started on their gifts. I’m hoping that trusty old last minute panic will give me enough of a boost to get everything I want to get done, done. :)

  298. charlotte maxwell December 13, 2011 at 4:35 am

    I have made about 10 items. This is a first for me, but this year I started in September…also a first for me.

  299. Karen M December 13, 2011 at 4:50 am

    I have made 7 gifts. Unfortunately, none of them had anything to do with sewing. I made gifts of fudge for my co-workers.

  300. baukje December 13, 2011 at 4:57 am

    I made two small wallhangings with Dutch fabric for my neighbors and I made kilo’s of Christmas chocolats!!!!

  301. Rhoda Thomas December 13, 2011 at 5:00 am

    I have been a very busy bee this year – I have made all my nearest and dearest a crocheted decoration for their tree instead of giving generic Christmas cards – so far they have been very well appreciated and I think a lot more personal and thoughtful. I would love your quilt to hang up on my wall as I think it needs to be showcased!

  302. andrea December 13, 2011 at 5:04 am

    what a great quilt!
    ive made quite a few of my presents-not sure how many off hand but at least a dozen :)

  303. Ana Maria December 13, 2011 at 5:21 am

    What an adorable quilt! Please pick me….Please! Regretfully, no gifts have been handcrafted this year due to my lack of realization that some things take longer with 2 small kids at home! Lol!

  304. Anne Marie December 13, 2011 at 5:31 am

    I have made several but not as many as I would have liked – seems like life just gets in the way!!

  305. Kate F. December 13, 2011 at 5:40 am

    Finished making? None. But three in progress. Yikes, that sounds scary this close to Christmas!

  306. Janice Holmes December 13, 2011 at 5:53 am

    So far I have made 8 gifts, working on #9 right now. I live in NC and my family is in OH, so I try to make something that won’t cost a fortune to ship. All of my sisters, and nieces are getting a breadwarmer with napkin (coordinating fabric on both sides). Last year I made my mother some “adult bibs” to give to her friends at the Assisted Living place she is living – they all loved it. May have to make some more of those. Love the quilt you posted!

  307. KT December 13, 2011 at 6:02 am

    I think I’ve managed to finish 1 gift so far, but have about 20 in progress–got to get busy if I hope to get them done! Thanks for the great giveaway–would love to win your cute doll quilt!

  308. Anna Kristine December 13, 2011 at 6:32 am

    This is so sweet! I have made 3 1/2 gifts so far…aiming for 9! I hope I make it! :)

  309. Sonja December 13, 2011 at 6:34 am

    By Christmas I will have made4 gifts. I usually make much more, but this year we made all of our decorations and purchased gifts instead.

  310. Kathleen December 13, 2011 at 6:34 am

    Nothing is finished! I only have about eight projects to finish and a full time job and my son plays basketball. Looks like I’m taking some time off from work to get crackin’.

  311. Kim McM December 13, 2011 at 6:43 am

    So far, none. But the year isn’t over yet. I plan on making food gifts for people. The hot chocolate on a stick recipe making the rounds on Pinterest sounds delicious!

  312. Julia in MS December 13, 2011 at 6:48 am

    I’ve made & given away a lot of meals this year. We have a lot of company coming in and out of our doors. And then most Saturdays we invite the children home for pizza. So, I’ve made a lot of pizza and given it away. Unfortunately there is nothing left to show you.

  313. Leanne December 13, 2011 at 6:52 am

    That is a beautiful quilt, I would love to win it! I have no handmade gifts yet, there is still time.

  314. Brenda December 13, 2011 at 7:07 am

    I have made many homemade gifts but no quilts my granddaughter would love this

  315. Betty December 13, 2011 at 7:08 am

    Love the hand quilting on the doll quilt. I have made 5 Christmas gifts. Two table runners and 3 doll quilts.

  316. Lisa C December 13, 2011 at 7:17 am

    Thanks for the opportunity to win! Beautiful quilt! I have made three quilts, two placemats, and two scarves as gifts this Christmas.

  317. Mary Ann O'Brien December 13, 2011 at 7:21 am

    I made an Advent Calendar quilt for my two grandaughters.

  318. mary mac December 13, 2011 at 7:33 am

    About half of my presents. Most of them have been some sort of paper craft such as a journal.

  319. Linda Warren December 13, 2011 at 7:33 am

    None so far, but I am buying some handmade gifts.

  320. Emily Lah December 13, 2011 at 7:35 am

    4 so far!

  321. djaj December 13, 2011 at 7:40 am

    Hum, tricky question ! I made at least 2 gifts, one for each SMS giveaway ! And one shawl originally made for me ended as a gift to someone I really appreciate. I’ve not been very generous this year, I knitted a lot for me (which is not that usual !)

  322. Alexandra Abarca December 13, 2011 at 7:49 am

    He realizado 6 regalos por mi misma, creo que aún me faltan unos pocos, otros los he comprado como 4 más.

    Un saludo cordial.

    Costa Rica

  323. Jo Ann December 13, 2011 at 7:50 am

    I have made 3 quilts and 3 pillows so far. I need to make 3 more pillows and I will be finished the Christmas crafts!

  324. Joy December 13, 2011 at 7:50 am

    Since I’m just starting to sew again, my answer is 0 right now. But that might possibly change before Christmas! I have a new grandbaby on the way and would love to win this sweet doll quilt.

  325. Linda Laurin December 13, 2011 at 8:06 am

    I have made one ornament and 2 gifts, pillowcases with pocket, for my grand daughters.

  326. Katina December 13, 2011 at 8:08 am

    Uh, none? The real answer is I don’t remember!! I’m a professional procrastinator! Actually, I had a lot of work stuff I had to deal with this year and had to put off a lot of my crafting time to get them done. I plan to do better next year!

  327. Lindsay December 13, 2011 at 8:11 am

    So far, I have made 5, but I hope to make a few more!

    Lovely quilt! Thanks for the giveaway!

  328. Denny December 13, 2011 at 8:11 am

    I made one gift this year. I LOVE making gifts. I LOVE receiving handmade gifts. Starting a new business has made it hard to make gifts this year. I’ll try for more for next year! Thanks for the giveaway. Too cute!

  329. Candace Henderson December 13, 2011 at 8:31 am

    I have made 12 vanilla extracts, some vanilla sugar that I am not sure how I will package, and I still need to make the kids gifts….but these were easy and serious low time commitment!

  330. Donna December 13, 2011 at 8:43 am

    I have about 10 planned but none even started- yikes!

  331. Jamie December 13, 2011 at 8:47 am

    I’ve managed several meals for all the baby makers, and several jars of jam, but no knit or sewn goodies this year. I did finally finish my daughter’s stocking that I started five years ago though! Too bad I’ve had two children since then, I detest that pattern!

  332. Bailey C December 13, 2011 at 8:48 am

    Cute quilt! I am only making 1 gift this year, it’s almost done, just need to finish hand stitching the binding down..hopefully it will be done on time :)

  333. Jill December 13, 2011 at 8:49 am

    I am working on one gift. I hope I get it finished, but having to cross my fingers.

  334. Lori K. December 13, 2011 at 8:54 am

    I am just getting started! I plan on making about 6.

  335. Keri December 13, 2011 at 9:07 am

    I have made 3 this year- all hand knits. Had intended to have a quilt for my DD, but I think that she will have it by NEXT year. LOVE your quilt. I loved this fabric too! Thanks for the chance!

  336. Mickey Kelly White December 13, 2011 at 9:09 am

    all I’ve made is 5 tissue holders & a table runner . not much of a homeade Christmas gift year here ! love the doll quilt and thanks for the chance to win !

  337. Beth T. December 13, 2011 at 9:11 am

    I’ve made 2 stockings and a table runner…with two quilts and four table runners underway. Wish me luck. Must get back to the sewing machine. Thanks for sharing the handmade goodness.

  338. lorraine December 13, 2011 at 9:31 am

  339. MarieH December 13, 2011 at 9:37 am

  340. Charlotte December 13, 2011 at 9:54 am

    I think about 10 or so. That doesn’t count custom orders.
    And I’ve got lots more to do!!!
    Clunsford at gmail dot com

  341. Brittany December 13, 2011 at 10:16 am

    8 jars of jam and 5 placemat sets. I kinda cheat because I make the jam in the summer with the fresh berries and then squirrel them away until now. What a cute little quilt, thanks for the chance of the great giveaway. :-)

  342. TheaM December 13, 2011 at 10:18 am

    so far, one completely done… and one half done.

  343. amy December 13, 2011 at 10:46 am

  344. Nancy December 13, 2011 at 11:15 am

  345. Kimberly December 13, 2011 at 11:30 am

    I’m in the process of making Zippy Strippy bags for my carpool mates and several females family members this year.

  346. Kim S December 13, 2011 at 11:49 am

    I managed to make 6 gifts this year. Some bunkbed book holders for my boys and hair barrettes for my girl.Thanks!

  347. julia c December 13, 2011 at 11:55 am

  348. Melanie Moraites December 13, 2011 at 11:55 am

    I’ve made a twin quilt, 3 table runners, canned wine jelly and also cranberry butter.

  351. Emily C. December 13, 2011 at 11:59 am

    I am at about 7 out of 15 presents made so far.

  352. Katy December 13, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    I have made 4 gift this year I would have liked to have made more but I just haven’t had time!

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway.


  353. Angie December 13, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    I’ve only made one gift this year. I’ve got a few more to make before the 24th.

  354. Jane S. December 13, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    Well at least I’m not the only one then! I didn’t make a darned thing by hand this Christmas…still hanging my head in shame about that but sometimes real life just gets in the way of creativity!

    Thank you for the chance to win such a cute little quilt. :)

  355. Beccanae December 13, 2011 at 12:20 pm

    2 but having 4 month old slowed me down.

  356. Nancysue December 13, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    I’ve only made 2 gifts, which is not as good as 3, but better than 1 or zero, unless I really did a bad job, and then nothing WOULD be better :)

  357. Gracie December 13, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    I couldn’t resist to enter this giveaway!! I LOVE birds and this quilt is just so beautiful!
    My answer to the question is: two. One for my sister and one for my boyfriend. I don’t have too much time to make handcrafts! =( I would love to make more gifts
    Thanks for the chance!

  358. Becky December 13, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    Well…I’m oh so close to finishing one and I have 4 more planned…maybe I should get off the computer and get to work:)

  359. Amy December 13, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    I have done 0 so far but I have quite a list to make starting tomorrow…had to get all unpacked first

  360. Claire December 13, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    How absolutely adorable, my granddaughter would really love it. She is always wanting new blankets etc, I know I’m always busy making something else for her, I really love doing it… I don’t let her know though.

  361. Natalia Genaro December 13, 2011 at 1:03 pm

    Only one… :D

  362. ellesquare December 13, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    um, one. but there’s time!

  363. Castle Swanson December 13, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    All the food gifts that needed to be shipped are complete AND mailed. Have a few sewing things to work on now, bags and purses, but am sooooo glad the items to be sent are off before the rush hits.

  364. Katie Masterton December 13, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    I love this! Just started quilting this year, am 1/2 way done with my first quilt, have finished the quilt top, just need to finish it off! Haven’t made any gifts, but plan on baking presents for our neighbours!

  365. Alicia December 13, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    None so far. 20 planned. lol Thankfully they are mostly stocking stuffers.

  366. Cal December 13, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    I am staring at the quilt wondering how you pieced it! Heck, it look complicated to be, like you would have Y seams…
    Beautiful though!

    I have made four presents so far, all within the last couple of days!

  367. Gail Klingele December 13, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    That quilt is so cute. I’d love to have it. I’ve made about 12 items, both sewed and some paper clay/scrapbook paper projects. I plan on making two or three more.

  368. Dresden Quilter December 13, 2011 at 2:38 pm

    12 and I am hoping to get a few more done. I love the quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

  369. Linda December 13, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    I have started some quilted coasters! I am so proud of myself to have gotten this far….am I pathetic or what….lol

  370. Sivje December 13, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    Oh my! That little quilt is cute!
    Well, if you mean Christmas gifts, I have only completed 3 so far this year, but many more are in progress. But if you mean gifts in general…….I don’t know. Lots! I don’t buy gifts very often anymore. It is more fun, and much cheaper, to make gifts out of my embarrassing fabric stash. :-)
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  371. Rachel December 13, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    this is such a wonderful giveaway .
    I have made just one git, a lovely baby quilt for my dear one.

  372. Marianne Squire Maszer December 13, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    I have a few started nothing finished! EEk! Thanks for chance to win your gorgeous quilt! Good luck all!

  373. SavvyGirlDeborah December 13, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    What a beautiful quilt! So far, I have completed three hand-knit gifts. One more is still on the needles. The only sewing I have been doing has been for myself.

  374. Debby December 13, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    I have only made a few mug rugs for friends. Hope to make a few ornaments this next week.

  375. anne s. December 13, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    Ummmm, well, I plan on making 6 or so. But I haven’t started yet. That may be a problem! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  376. Adrianna December 13, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    I have made four gifts this year! And have about 15 more to go:/

  377. VickiT December 13, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    Oh my gosh ~ That is an awesome little quilt. And hand done? wow. What a great giveaway.

    I have made nothing yet. :( It makes me angry too.
    Have I bought tons of fabric for specific gifts to make? YUP! Spent all kinds of money that we really weren’t able to afford when I was buying it. That’s the part that makes me mad.

    Of course, I am just now making cookies so yea, I am way behind. Maybe I’ll get a energy spurt soon.

  378. racergirl1313 December 13, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    12 so far! But they are all the same thing so it wasn’t too hard.

    Lovely quilt, thanks for the giveaway!

  379. Tara December 13, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    I have made few fairy people, but that is it for this year.

    Lovely quilt.

  380. Jerri December 13, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    I have made several gifts this year. Easy ones, though. Microwave heating pads. It’s cold here.

  381. Patty December 13, 2011 at 7:03 pm

    I have made 3 items and have one that needs to be finished for Christmas.

  382. Julia December 13, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    That is such a cute quilt.
    I’ve made many of them, but in a different sort of way. I’m on a trading team and I make cards/tags and I’ve traded for the majority of my stocking stuffers and some of my main gifts. I’ve got hand stamped Christmas ornaments, felt food, handmade soap, etc. Cool, eh? ;)

  383. Dawn Meador December 13, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    So far 6 sets of cotton dish cloths and one scarf ~ that’s it. Several other items working……

  384. Sarah December 13, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    But you HAVE made a gift! The giveaway!
    I’ve made 5 gifts and I’m on my sixth….but the first ones were easy: each were done in one day. This last one, a ukelele case, is much more complicated and I’ve worked on it for about a week!
    Love the bird theme of the quilt. (One of my made items was a stuffed bird tree decoration.)

  385. Katie December 13, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    I made three this year

  386. @pril December 13, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    Eesh, I would say just a few. Shame on me!

  387. Nita December 13, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    I am helping my 3 year old grandaughter make a gift for her Aunt DD.Also working on little purse party favors filled with candy..Merry Christmas!

  388. Lynn December 13, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    I made four presents this year. Thanks for the giveaway!

  389. Sherri S. December 13, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    Ooh, it’s lovely! I’ve managed to make 5 things…but I plant to stay up really late tonight and make a few more! Thanks for the chance to win, and happy holidays.

  390. Mirza December 13, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    Hmm, I made my 2 daughters a backpack dolly carrier each and made AG doll clothes and filled the bags. I made 7 outfits total, I believe. Still have to get my DS’s fort kit made up, though.

  391. Eve December 13, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    Such a sweet quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

  392. Kristin M December 13, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Wow, I have started a couple and really have not finished any. Maybe that should be my New Year’s resolution… The quilt is so cute.

  393. Kimberly December 13, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    Heh, a lot! But I also had a baby, and my way to say thank you to everyone for their gifts was to make them something. In addition I tend to make my kids friends gifts for their birthdays, and my kids of course, and then my Grandmother bought mne a new sewing machine so I felt the need to thank her by sending her a few things, and then my Motheri n law told me she didn’t have a stocking.. and my daughter then got a few naked barbies that needed clothes..

  394. nkiblueeyes December 13, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    Thanks for the chance to win! I’ve been admiring your doll quilt!

    I’ve made 3 quilts and about 14 potholders. Am working on some ornaments and that’s about it. :)

  395. Libby December 13, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    Quite a few actually. I quick counted and it’s around 20 or so :) I can justify my hobby to my husband this way !

  396. Stephanie December 13, 2011 at 9:31 pm


    Hopefully there will be a few more, at least that was the plan. Thanks for the chance to win.

  397. Ann December 13, 2011 at 9:56 pm

    Don’t know if this will count or not but I will be making about 10 gifts next Thursday & Friday – many batches of cookies and sweet breads to give away to friends and family.

  398. Janet December 13, 2011 at 10:07 pm

    Oh gosh….I’ve got three on the list but none of them are finished yet….

  399. Diane December 13, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    I have made eight gifts so far.

  400. Tina M December 13, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    I think this is so cute. My daughter would love to have it for her baby doll. I cannot even count how many gifts I have made. I told myself if I am going to get a new sewing machine I HAD to use it. Well every time I am making any one any thing, my daughter says I need to make her something. Tina M yelowrozen at yahoo dot com

  401. Jane T December 13, 2011 at 11:36 pm

    I have only managed to make one gift and it isn’t finished yet. I need to get on the stick!!!

  402. Marlene December 13, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    If I can count things that I have bought and embellished, then several. If not I just finished my first mug rug. Tiny quilts are more doable for me

  403. Claudia December 14, 2011 at 12:41 am

    Sorry to say..but none…except the cooked and baked ones…
    Thank you for the chance to win such a wonderful prize.
    Kind regards from Germany.

  404. Heather December 14, 2011 at 1:14 am

    One child’s quilt, and another almost finished as well as a couple of table mats!! Mmmm, there were meant to be more!! Better planning next year, I hope.

  405. Paige Alexander December 14, 2011 at 1:55 am

    Love your quilt! Sorry to say I have not made any gifts this year!

  406. Janina December 14, 2011 at 2:53 am

    I have made 7 Christmas gifts by hand…just LOVE that birdie fabric gotta get me some!! Thanks

  407. Robyn December 14, 2011 at 3:14 am

    Sewn? None. But I’ve bought gifts slowly during the year for what suits each person exactly. The majority of those gifts are wrapped already. That’s a first for me!

  408. Jefner December 14, 2011 at 3:18 am

    Gifts for christmas done? So far none:) But I did get birthday and Halloween presents done and gifted. Probably… 8 or so.

  409. Tsmmi December 14, 2011 at 3:27 am

    It isn’t finished yet, but there is a Jedi robe in the works for my nephew, who was very jealous of the Yoda robe I made his brother for Halloween.
    May the Force be with me and let me finish this thing…

  410. Terri December 14, 2011 at 4:03 am

    i have only made one gift so far…a baby quilt for a friend who is due at the end of this month. it is only my second finished quilt, but i’m hoping to make more in the near future!
    thanks for the wonderful giveaway; your color choices are so vivid!

  411. Brooke December 14, 2011 at 4:45 am

    If food counts, I have several gifts I’m making this weekend. Gorgeous quilt! My one year old daughter’s room has birds & those same colors.

  412. Billye Vitagliano December 14, 2011 at 6:11 am

    I’ve made ALL my Christmas gifts, including one I sent to your Mom! 12 wine caddies for people at work, a wall hanging each for my mother and sister, a table topper (BIG!) for my Mom, a cell phone case for my sister, a wall hanging for my niece, a wine caddy for her fiance, one pillow case each for my great niece and great nephew, a quilt for my daughter, a quilt for my grandson, and tons of stuff for my granddaughter, including a butterfly stuffed animal, a painting smock, pillow case and a pillow for her doll. I’m just finishing up 4 paper pieced dogs that will be sashed, bordered, quilted and bound to become bowl mats for my dog and my sister’s dog. I started in February. Yeah, I know, crazy! I doubt I do it again next year. . .

  413. Joy December 14, 2011 at 7:09 am

    Um. I’ve made 1 for my kids, but it was a big one. I think I’m going to be able to get another couple done before the big day.

  414. Lael December 14, 2011 at 7:14 am

    3/4 of a quilt. I hand quilt so there may be no hope of finishing. (The lack of homemade gifts is related to the fact that none of my immediate family really appreciates handmade. Well my 8 yr old daughter does, but once something is made I can’t help but give it to her, cause it’s no longer a secret!)

  415. Ariadne December 14, 2011 at 7:32 am

    Only 6 I made and would be making more if this giveaway didn’t make me sit in front of the computer longer hours!


  416. Elaine December 14, 2011 at 7:48 am

    I only got 1 made to give away. Spent most of the year trying to finish 2 quilt tops which I can happily say I did. Hoping I can do better next year.

  417. Jennifer December 14, 2011 at 7:52 am

    Sadly, only 3. I’m running way behind this year!!! The quilt is beautiful and would look awesome on my mini-quilt wall! Have a happy holiday Amy! Jenn

  418. Denise Crary December 14, 2011 at 8:05 am

    I have made some homemade cookies and I even had time for a Cookie Swap… I hope that counts… I am way behind on making things, but LOVE LOVE LOVE the quilt…

  419. Amanda December 14, 2011 at 8:11 am

    I’m working on one for my daughter and I hope to be finished in time. :-)

  420. Gill December 14, 2011 at 8:26 am

    Nearly 4! does nearly count!!

  421. Wren December 14, 2011 at 8:46 am

    I haven’t made anything yet, but I have a patchwork pillow top in the works.

  422. lynn December 14, 2011 at 8:47 am

    11 so far…thanks for the giveaway!

  423. Shannon A December 14, 2011 at 8:56 am

    I tried to make some quilts for my daughter and new baby due in 5 days but I never finished. I made some homemade vanilla and apple butter for our family. Thanks,

  424. Barb B December 14, 2011 at 9:04 am

    The pile is getting bigger everyday. I am trying to give something handmade to all on the list. I may be able to do it yet…

  425. Elaine Papworth (Erin's Mom) December 14, 2011 at 9:19 am

    Hi, Amy: Believe it or not, I made 3 pillows for gift giving. Except I kept one because it turned out so cute. Oh and Erin did the quilting on another one of them. Well, hey, a gal has to do what a gal has to do! Merry Christmas to you and your cute family! Love, elaine

  426. Natalie Burgan December 14, 2011 at 10:18 am

    I have two quilts in progress but not yet completed. Not sure when/if I will find the time but I work best under pressure. Love your great little bird quilt. So cute & sweet. I would hang on the wall where it would get lots of attention. Thanks for the giveaway.

  427. Hueisei December 14, 2011 at 10:20 am

    4, the rest I buy from market.
    Thanks for the chance to win ^^v

  428. isewcrooked December 14, 2011 at 10:43 am

    If we’re talking solely for Christmas, I made six quilts. Over the course of the year, nearly everything I make is for a gift. Love your little quilt! Birds are my favorite.

  429. amorette December 14, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    this is so beautiful, thanks for offering it!
    i have managed two stockings, a tutu, a felt crown and a quilt (still needs to be quilted)- but i still need to make 2 pillow covers (and i don’t have the fabric!)

  430. Stephanie Zito December 14, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    Wow! Gorgeous and adorable quilt Amy!!! This year I made 7 pairs of pj pants for hubby and my girls and the rest of the stuff I have been working on is for our home (4 winter/xmas quilts, a table topper, card holder and a small winter BOM). I guess I’ve been sewing up a storm! Thanks for the chance to win!

  431. Melanie M. December 14, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    I absolutely love this fabric. Such a sweet little quilt!

  432. Heather December 14, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    I hang my head in shame… I’ve only made one! But I do have a ton of projects on the go. Which will be my new years resolution to get them done next year!!

  433. Kess December 14, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    Oh my gosh, cutest quilt/bird fabric ever! I love it.
    And I think I have managed to make…two? Maybe? And one of those was a card/comic that kind of turns into a scavenger hunt. So I guess that only counts as a half. -grin- So not very many.
    Thanks for the cute giveaway!

  434. Sybil December 14, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    A LOT but only because I have been in a ‘use it up’ mode during 2011. I made 12 embroidered pin cushions for my quilting group, 12 crazy quilted pin cushions for my yoga group and 7 bags for my neighborhood gals. Oh, and a travel sewing kit & covered book for a Kris Kringle gift.

  435. Missy December 14, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    Many! I made ornaments for everyone!

  436. AlwaysInspired December 14, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    I’ve made at least 5, which is down from last year, but at least I made a few!

  437. Anne December 14, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    I’ve made a lot of knitted things. I’m working on a quilt that might or might not get done in time. Merry Christmas!

  438. laura December 14, 2011 at 5:48 pm

    I’ve made four gifts this year; some funny needlepoints and a freezer paper stencil shirt! Thanks for the giveaway!

  439. Kristy K December 14, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    I’ve made 3 cosmetics bags, and a lot of cookies!

  440. Kimberly December 14, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    So far, I’ve made Zippy Strippy bags for my carpool mates and the ladies in my family.

  441. Jessica Helen December 14, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    I’ve managed to make 4 gifts this year, 3 children’s aprons and 1 bag.

  442. Shirley Clark December 14, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    If you mean handmade Christmas gifts, then well, not that many. I sort of quit making so much for other people after my grandkids came along.
    I spend all of my sewing time on things for them. I make my granddaughter outfits, and do a lot of machine embroidered tee shirts for her and the boys.

    Thanks for a chance to win. The quilt is adorable!

  443. addie December 14, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    I’Ve knit five items for gifts and sewn three tote bags – not too shabby since i have a 4 month old and almost 4 yr old!

  444. Angie December 14, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    I have made about 6 things…all embroidered or hand appliqued…yea!

  445. Jennifer December 14, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    Cute doll quilt! So far I have finished 3 gifts, with 5 more to go. Probably should have started back in August

  446. SewLindaAnn December 14, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    None unfortunately. I’ve been lame this year.

  447. Jodi December 14, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    I should have known you would have something totally cute to give away. This year I have finished 4 gifts so far and am hoping I will have 2 more wrapped up under the tree for people on Christmas morning.

  448. Chiska December 14, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    One so far and 4 still on the dock. I may make it yet!

  449. Bethany December 14, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    I have made 6 this year!

  450. Elaine December 14, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    I’ve made 4 and am working on 3 more!

  451. fern December 14, 2011 at 11:58 pm

    what an adorable little quilt! Love it! I’ve made probably about 10 gifts this year. the last one was just whipped out about 2 hours ago! way more to go though!

  452. Cherie Webb December 15, 2011 at 12:14 am

    I made a few potholders.

  453. toni December 15, 2011 at 1:44 am

    I have started lot’s of gifts … not even this year, that are still NOT done … crazy, super icky year. None done this year. Sadly, or not, i will not be pulling any crazy all nighters to finish them. be real.
    your’s is one blog i frequent
    – may your Christmas be merry and bright!

  454. Jenelle December 15, 2011 at 2:03 am

    I have been working steadily since October on making gifts, so maybe around 15 to 20 (some of which are only a single ornament). I really enjoy making gifts when I have the time (maybe even more than the recipient likes receiving them!) and it helps me get into the holiday spirit. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  455. Sonia December 15, 2011 at 3:31 am

    sadly I have made none. I really didn’t notice how close it is, so it didn’t happen this year.

  456. stephanie December 15, 2011 at 4:48 am

    i made about 25 gifts, uff. did a great job, but now my sewing machine is broken.

  457. Jenn Lang December 15, 2011 at 5:29 am

    Very cute! Don’t know if I’d give it to my daughter or keep & display as art at work in my needs-some-color cubicle : )
    I’ve made a few things this year but I’ve started lots…that still need finished (looking guilty)

  458. Tanya December 15, 2011 at 5:55 am

    1, so sad but I still have over a week to go!

  459. Kristin PG December 15, 2011 at 6:43 am

    Christmas snuck up on me this year, so I haven’t been able to make any!!

  460. Jowyn Jenson December 15, 2011 at 7:01 am

    Unfortunately the answer is none!

  461. Svenna December 15, 2011 at 7:18 am

    Thank you so much for the chance to win, such a beautiful giveaway.

    I am about four presents down, a couple more to go.. :)

  462. Liz B December 15, 2011 at 7:32 am

    Gorgeous little doll quilt! (If I won it, it would be a gift for my aunt. So you could count that as one handmade gift!)

    I haven’t had time to sew any gifts yet, although I have a couple of them planned. I’ve been making earrings, lots and lots of them, so if I could each pair that is a gift I’ve made at least 20 gifts so far this year!!

  463. Ballardquilter December 15, 2011 at 7:34 am

    three gifts this year

  464. Connie December 15, 2011 at 9:47 am

    What a beautiful little quilt! I made quite a few runners for gifts this year and have 2 quilts made for my granddaughters. Thanks!

  465. Lorri December 15, 2011 at 10:20 am

    It seems like everyone I know is having babies this year, so I have made a lot of gifts! More than 10 for sure. Mostly baby booties, mittens and play mats. :) Making things for the little ones is so much fun!

  469. Sarah December 15, 2011 at 11:16 am

    This little quilt is just gorgeous, I cannot believe you want to give it away!

    I am so proud to say that I actually made most of my christmas gift this year, I did purses for my female relatives and hotpads and homemade canning for all the guys.

  470. Amy December 15, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    Ive made 3, I think. But I’m hopefuls that I’ll get several more done.

  471. Holly Schilling December 15, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    I managed 2 gifts, but I had vinyl to help make them.

  472. glaucia December 15, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    how beautiful is this doll quilt! Thanks for the giveaway :)

    Until now, I managed to have only 2 handmade gifts, which are 2 pendants with an illustration on it. I hope I find enough time to make another 10 ones! ( basically, zipper pouches, so, should be quick to make :P ) :D

  473. Jen December 15, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    I love your giveaway! I sadly have only gotten 3 gifts finished and have a pile more to go. I’d better get busy.

  474. Carly December 15, 2011 at 2:21 pm

    This is lovely! I’ve probably made around 10 gifts…some pillowcases, zip pouches, a chef’s hat, a tote, and a carrying case for some scissors. :)

  475. amber December 15, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    So far I have made…none. But I plan to make 5-6. In fact I am procrastinating right now.

  476. Anna Honeysett December 15, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    I have made five gifts this year: two photo albums- one for my mum and one for my mother-in-law, a baby quilt for my niece, a scarf for my husband and a scarf for my younger sister and finally a dress for my older sister. But I still have pile of half made gifts which hopefully will be finished in time for next Christmas :-).

  477. Penny G December 15, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    I should be in there finishing the red/green plaid 9″ hot pads (6 of them) to go along with the finished red/green plaid dish towels (6 of them) and the finished red/green plaid trimmed placemats with forest green gingerbread (boy or girl) for the grandkids (7 of these). Then I have started several quilts (blocks), and completed several more as gifts through 2011.
    The doll quilt would be perfect for one of my grand daughters.
    Thanks for the opportunity of the give-away!

  478. Chacoy December 15, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    I have made 12 & really proud of myself for getting that many done!
    Thank you for the opportunity, my dolls would look adorable under this cutie!

  479. Ramona December 15, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    I am hoping to finish 3 gifts this year. None are finished yet.

  480. Melissa December 15, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    Oh I love your quilt so much! I did manage to make a few gifts this year, but I sort of cheated.. I made lots of stuff for a Christmas Craft Market and usually after markets I don’t feel like sewing for a while so I will be giving away some of the things that I originally made for the market. That’s not terrible, is it..?

  481. Jeanne G December 15, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    I have made 7 gifts so far but there is still time for more.

  482. Shawna December 15, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    I’ve made 3 washcloths this year and have 3 more to do. I usually sew a few presents, but I’ve been learning to knit and it is taking up all my time!

  483. Kristen December 15, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    Super sweet! I love the hand quilting! I have made 2. Quilt and mini quilt!

  484. Roberta December 15, 2011 at 10:03 pm

    This little quilt is beautiful. I love the birds. With a twinge a guilt I have to admit none. But the year is not yet over. :) Thanks for sharing your creativity.

  485. Shannon F. December 15, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    I made quite a few gifts! A couple tutus, a photoframe, some hats and gloves! I was very impressed with myself. lol

  486. Kirsten December 15, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    I think I have made about seven – a couple of quilts and some pillows.

  487. marilyn December 16, 2011 at 4:47 am

    I have – well I should say I WILL have made 7 gifts by Christmas day. Just needing to give some finishing touches (to all of them)

  488. Ann December 16, 2011 at 6:00 am

    I have made 5 gifts this year. Thanks for the giveaway.

  489. Brenda December 16, 2011 at 6:31 am

    I have made one gift this holiday season so far. There will be cookie trays given out this next week though! ;) Thanks for participating in this wonderful event. I am having so much fun finding new blogs to follow! :)

  490. Sheila December 16, 2011 at 8:23 am

    What a lovely quilt! I have yet to make any handmade gifts, but I have plans to make 3! Yes, I’ve left it to the last minute, as usual! Thanks for the chance. :)

  491. Katie December 16, 2011 at 8:47 am

    I have made 5 presents this year, but four of them are “you’re having a baby” gift rather than christmas gifts.

  492. Jennwith4 December 16, 2011 at 9:42 am

    Mine wld be none :(

  493. Heather December 16, 2011 at 10:02 am

    I’ll get some homemade baked goods made this weekend, and only that because my mom will come to watch the baby!

  494. carolyn December 16, 2011 at 10:25 am

    finished 1 in the middle of 5 :-/

  495. amy December 16, 2011 at 11:03 am

    I’ve made a lot. Can’t really count. Pocket tissue holders, doll bedding, afghans, scarves, hats, zip pouches and key fobs. I love doing little things.

  496. Jenny G. December 16, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    I’ve made 1- an 80″ x 84″ tree skirt for my mom. That pretty much does it for me this year.

  497. cradke December 16, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    My goal this year has been homemade gifts. For Christmas there is at least 20 things alone, and I’ve done a lot of baby quilts for gifts (10?) and birthday quilts (another 5?) Hm… add some pillows…

    Let’s just say it’s been so much I need to cut down.

  498. Angela December 16, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    I’ve managed to finish three, but I’ve got a dozen more to go!

  499. Keilah December 16, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    I have made ornaments for all the teachers and assistants.
    Thanks for the giveaway

  500. Henria O. December 16, 2011 at 2:13 pm

  501. Ellen M. December 16, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    I’ve made two. Thanks for the chance to win this adorable doll quilt!

  502. Sasha December 16, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    I’ve made a fair few, but bulk made. Chutneys and pickles, Jamie Olivers hot chocolate mix with a few additions to make it snow man soup.
    I’ve not sewn any, but there is still time.

  503. amy dame December 16, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    ohmygoodness, this quilt is so lovely! the little birds are so sweet. it would be such a cheerful piece to look up from your sewing machine and see hanging above you.

    i haven’t made any presents this year, cause i’ve been staying with my grandma to deal with some health stuff, and that pretty much messed up my holiday plans, but even so, only certain members of my family really like handmade gifts.

    every year i threaten to make my brother something with “my sister made this, so i hate it, cause i’m a jerk” embroidered on it!

    thank you so much for a chance to win, what a generous giveaway!

  504. Courtney December 16, 2011 at 5:14 pm

    i’ve made soooo many gifts this year- i feel especially accomplished. handmade gifting is my favorite!
