Quilting Arts Holiday issue is here to save the day for those of us who love to create gifts for those we treasure. I am excited to share three different projects with you in this issue! Below is a list of all the blog hop participant. Be sure to check out their blogs and read about their will be inspired!


If you are looking for the perfect gift for your best creative buddy they will love this fabric collaged hand-bound book! It even has a zippered supply bag sewn in so they can carry their favorite pens, pencils and markers for sketching on the go. 


Want to make super cute cards that don't break the bank? These fun holiday cards are great for using up all those pesky scraps and are easy enough and so fun that you can enlist the kids for help. You can easily adapt them to any holiday by simply changing the motif.


Need a gift for the fashionista in your life? These silk painted and wood block printed scarves are sure to delight them. You can choose block designs and colors that are perfect for their discerning tastes. Not to mention they are fun to make. You can find a great selection of wood blocks at Artistic Artifacts. 

Would you like to win one of these scarves? 


Leave me a comment below telling me what you like to make for your holiday celebrations for a chance to win the scarf of your choice from the photo in the magazine!


A little extra something:

If you have seen the previous issues of Quilting Arts Gifts, you know they usually have some delicious holiday treat recipes included. With all my food allergies and the Celiac constraints, I don't have any current recipes to contribute that would have mass appeal but in honor of National Deviled Egg day I have a great hint for super yummy deviled eggs! Replace the mayonnaise in your basic deviled egg recipe with mashed avocado and top with diced cooked bacon. They will be adored by all, have healthy fats and you will be the queen of the day!
