Quilting Arts Gifts Magazine 2011

Look what I got today.....
Quilting Arts Magazine is one of my absolute favorite magazines of all time.  Always something new to see and interesting techniques showcased including instructions....right up my alley.

I dropped everything I was doing (and supposed to be doing) and sat on my sofa and read the Quilting Arts Magazine Gifts Holiday Magazine.  If you like to make hand made gifts for the holidays you will certainly find many fun ideas inside....including ornaments, totes, covers, journals, table runners, place mats and many more projects to choose from. 

One that caught my eye immediately was the Nametag Pouches by Susan Brubaker Knapp (Blue Moon River).  I'll be sporting a new Nametag Pouch come Fall Quilt Market in October....thanks to Susan. 
I think these Nametag Pouches are excellent for travel too. When you have to go through so many checkpoints at the airport having your drivers license in the front is convenient and you can put your credit card and a little cash in the pouch so you don't have to dig through your wallet or purse. They are fun for guild meeting name tags too. I  made some, much different that these beauties, for my boys. I make them wear them under their shirts when we go to large places so they can be identified if they get lost (we write our cell phone numbers on business cards).



Jen Eskridge, Reanna Lily Designs, another gal I know....also had a fun gift idea.  Jen calls her project the Cold Weather Kit and it includes a coordinating scarf, headband and glove saver set.  Since I have three girls you know I was all over this idea.  The really cool thing about this gift idea is that it is appropriate for all age ranges.  I want a set for myself ....don't you?

I really, really, really like this magazine.....however.....what I didn't tell you is that I have two copies....one to keep and one to give away!!!  So, if you are an IHAN blog follower, leave a comment on this post and I'll draw a random winner on Monday for this years Quilting Arts Gifts Magazine.

Smiles,
Kelly

  73. I'd love a copy of this magazine, I do quilting and enjoy it but it's not always right though. I am sort of self taught, but I try to do it like my Grandmother did. I never showed her much interest in hers when she was alive, I really wish I had, so I try now to copy what she did.
