Just in time for the holidays.....


If you have an extra quilt top laying around, you still have time to complete this gift for someone special for the holidays.

Make your quilt into a cozy robe. I found this one several years ago at an antique shop in Texas. Notice the simple kimono style. The front closure can be completed quickly too - just take a snap closure off an old robe and stitch it in place. Do some blanket stitching to finish the seams and voila! You have a dandy one-of-a-kind present. Mine is lined with a nice white sheet.

You probably will not believe that I had this out at several of my garage sale this year and it did not sell. I will admit I had a bit of a high garage sale price on it if someone really wanted it.

I think I wanted to keep it. It is a thing I truly love.

  2. Oh man! I love it. I am going to look at my old tops differently now. Oh, and the model ain't half bad either. Karmen

  4. Deb, did you make this robe or find it already made? It's definitely one of a kind! Good to price these one of kind things high so that only a discriminating buyer will go for it.
