It's lovely to be able to give a gift that you have put time and love into. Here are a few that I made and gifted in 2007.

For my niece.

For my nephew.

A wonderful friend.

A donation quilt.

One Fabric ~ 3 Quilts

Our small patchwork group attended a workshop in 2007 to learn how to create a kaleidoscope quilt from one fabric. We followed up with an exhibition in the local art gallery.

Once all my hexagons were laid out, I wasn't happy with some of the colours fitting together so I separated them and created 3 quilts ... all from the 1 fabric which I have used as a border on the larger quilt.

Loving the effect, I have since purchased more fabric and the book 'One Block Wonders, Encore' for some time down the track.

Bags of Bags

Time to do some updating here at Kalliwa ... first I had to find my way back in because I'd forgotten my login details :)

Going back to 2007, I attended a Shaggy Bag workshop and after that made 5 more bags for gifts. I forgot to take a photo of one for my SIL but here are my original (centre) plus 4 others.

Back later with some more finished from 2007.
