Make It

spacer 3-2-1 Quilted Throw
Melanie writes that her 3-2-1 Quilted Throw Tutorial at Modern Organic Fabrics is perfect for beginners.
spacer Don’t Get Out of Bed Pants
We love the sentiment (and look) of these Don’t Get Out of Bed Pants from Tamara at ducky house! Make them for the whole family…
spacer Sparks Baby Quilt
Alissa’s Sparks Baby Quilt Pattern from Handmade by Alissa is beautiful, and you can easily add more blocks to create a bigger size if you wish.
spacer Super Easy Removable Pillow Cover
This Super Easy Removable Pillow Cover Tutorial from Candace at Sparkle Power! really is easy! Make a stack of new pillows for a lucky family member (can’t you just picture them wrapped & piled under the tree?!).
spacer How to Make a Pillowcase
Use Kelsey’s easy How to Make a Pillowcase Tutorial at Vanilla Joy and enjoy your favorite fabrics every day of the week.
spacer Charm Squares Baby Quilt
Like Alissa’s quilt, Elizabeth’s Charm Squares Baby Quilt can be adapted to a lap quilt size or bigger; it’s the perfect project for a special gift. Fat quarters & charm packs take some of the guesswork out of finding the perfect fabric combinations.

spacer Modern Wonky Log Cabin from Handmade by Alissa
It’s hard to choose just one quilt to feature from Handmade by Alissa. We love this Modern Wonky Log Cabin in red and aqua, but we also love her Stacked Coin Baby Quilts, Modern Wonky Log Cabin Pillow Sleeves & more… Take a look!

Mix It

spacer Chocolate Chip- Pumpkin Spice Bars
Lori shares a delicious Chocolate Chip- Pumpkin Spice Bar Recipe at Recipe Girl. Maybe you should do a test-bake now with your Halloween pumpkins?!

Print It

spacer Vintage Gift Wrap Gift Tags
Download and print these Vintage Gift Wrap Gift Tags from Sweet Jessie. They’d be especially lovely paired with brown craft paper for some cheery gift giving.
