San Francisco Window Boxes Quilt and Gift Ideas

 We had a Zippy Strippy class this past week and made this cute little black and white zipper tote perfect for makeup or sewing notions.  They make wonderful graduation, shower or 'thinking of you' gifts. The pattern is by Atkinson Design and includes three sizes.  These quilt-as-you-go little totes make up quickly and you can use scraps.
 We also discovered this wonderful casserole carrier on the blog, Northern Girl Boutique.  We used the thermal batting that holds in warmth to make these two versions which hold a 9" pie or a 1 1/2 quart casserole. Northern Girl included a brown paper bag with her's with a pie recipe attached to the outside and the dry ingredients inside.  Another fast, clever gift item!
 Gen Cox finished this stunning, large Quilter's Tote by Garden Trellis Designs, perfect to travel to quilt shows and carry your quilt entry or class supplies including a cutting mat, material, notions and maybe even a small sewing machine!
 Jody made this San Francisco Window Boxes quilt top using the pattern by Sweet Jane's Quilting and Design.  Just 5" squares in the middle and 2 1/2" strips around--16 fat quarters for the twin sized version plus about three yards white material for sashing and borders.  Easy-peasy, fast and beautiful.  But shhhhhh!!! It's a Christmas gift for someone in her family once it's quilted and bound!!!!
