Quilted Gift Bags for Special People

I spent the weekend whipping up these fun little bags and really got the factory assembly rolling! Almost all of these were quilt-as-you-go test blocks or pieces that I’ve had hanging around (in some cases for years!) and had stored away. I have a team of very special hardworking folks coming to our San Francisco office from all over the country this week and wanted to make something for each – voila zippered gift pouches! One can always use these in your purse or briefcase to store miscellaneous things.  And it turns out they are the perfect size to hold an iPad. Hope they like them!

Sara’s Quilted Samosa

I love making a handmade gift – in this case for a 50th birthday surprise dinner for my friend Sara (who is my birthday buddy – we share the same date!)  We are both lucky to have a wonderful group of friends, some of whom  got together for dinner tonight to surprise Sara. Happy Birthday, girl!

I am so fortunate to have a wonderful group of long-time women friends here in  San Francisco. We all met when our kids were in kindergarten at Miraloma Elementary. That public school was so much more that I’d ever anticipated for my kids, but the added bonus was the wonderful parent friendships we all made. The first of us have older kids now leaving for college and the rest of us have teens at the end of their high school years. Friendship is forever – I love y’all!
