We often want to show our friends how much we care during the holiday season and our quilting friends are no different! But the holidays are here before we know it and we sometimes need more hours in the day to get all of our gifts made. So we have compiled a list of even more gift ideas to help make your gift list grow shorter (and maybe your wish list a little longer…).
Whether you are looking for fresh gift-giving ideas for your best quilting friend or a small surprise for your trusty longarmer, we have a little something for every quilter, style, budget—and best of all, how much time you have before that holiday party!
Maywood Studio Pods
Want to make a quilt for a gift, but you are short on time? These precut kits are a game changer and this year Maywood Studio added a new twist! Usually 1 pod=crib, 2=twin, etc. Well, combine 2-3 different pod designs in the same fabrics for new design possibilities. Making a quilt with no cutting involved? Holiday timesaver indeed!
Classic Metal Company
The quilter that wants the world to know who she is – NEEDS a barn quilt. Sometimes said quilter doesn’t own a barn and that’s okay, because these laser cut metal signs from the Classic Metal Company will do the trick! These gorgeous designs are available in 12, 24 and 36-inch square designs.
They have added a delightful selection of Christmas ornaments if you prefer to give something a little smaller. They also have a gorgeous set of leather coasters (ab0ve) that no quilter should be without!
Block of the Month
Keep your friend thinking of you year round with a block of the month pattern in their favorite style.
Sew a Little, Sip a Little Wine Glass
For the quilter that loves a nice glass of wine, how about a glass that lets her forget that she has sewn that seam three times now and it is still not right. Pair this with some handmade coasters for a personal touch.
Give the gift of quilting inspiration! A new book is always the perfect gift. Choose a book featuring techniques or a designer your quilting friend loves or one that you think they might enjoy.
English Paper Piecing papers and a charm pack of fabric
For that quilting friend who is always on the go and never has time to sew! Add a package of hand sewing needles, thread and a glue stick for instant usability.
Purple Pineapple Quilt Studio Patterns
When a holiday card is just not enough, why not tuck one of these fresh, modern quilt patterns in the envelope too? Amy’s quilt instructions fit on a glossy postcard and are $3.50–the perfect add-on gift!
In the Hoop Gifts for Everyone!
The Tech To Go Cord Caddies by Pickle Pie Designs are perfect for keeping your cords and earbuds organized and tangle-free. Stitch it up and they are sure to think of you every time they use it. Available in 4 sizes (2 for large hoops and 2 for small hoops. Optional video tutorial also available)
We are swooning over this gift box filled with 50(!) fat eighths of delicious, shimmering Oakshott cotton. This one is for your personal wish list. The gift box is a splurge, but you are so worth it!
Fun and easy to use, The Cricut Maker cuts fabric as well as paper, card stock, vinyl and more. The Maker is a great tool for applique, cutting even small, tight curves.
Sometimes quilters are like the shoemaker’s children–they make for everyone else and sometimes not for themselves. Why not make an adorable Christmas stocking and fill it with some sweet notions? Our Holiday Hang-Ups pattern has six cute stockings to try.
Quilters always love a good magazine. Why not send your friend a subscription to Quiltmaker? (Hint, Hint. Okay, this one would be a gift for us too!)
