I just wanted to share one of my projects I’m making this year for the holidays for friends and family! If you are looking for quick patterns to make this year, then Simply Christmas by Sherri K. Falls is just for you because she combines piecing, applique, and embroidery to embellish cute, holiday-inspried gifts like a mini-quilt, embroidered tea towels, and a cute cup cozie. For this particular gift project, I chose Trim the Towel.

Wouldn’t it be nice to get the things you really want this year?

This Starlight Table Topper Pattern by Loraine Manwaring and Susan Nelsen from the book Holiday Wrappings, has been a favorite of mine since this downloadable pattern went up on our website.  So, when it was chosen for Gifty, I snatched up the opportunity to do this project.  Once the cutting is complete, the project actually sews up pretty fast and can be completed in 1-3 days depending on your experience and speed.
