Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge for December is Journey, Memories, and Reflection.

December is a brilliant time to reflect on the past year and review where you are currently in your Quilting your Legacy™ journey and what you need to sew next to continue slingshot your Quilting Legacy.

When I reflect on my quilting journey, I think of my Grandma. Without my Grandma's guidance and encouragement, I wouldn't have understood the power of Legacy Quilting.

This month in my spare time, I'm going to sew a quilt made from the very last fabric collection she bought for the Norton House. I've been holding onto the fabric for years, unsure what to make, but a few weeks ago, I kept the material in my hand and searched the shop for a pattern. I picked out three different quilt patterns then finally narrowed it down to one. I will keep you posted on the progress on the Facebook page!

Ask yourself: 
• Who have you not made something for?
• What is in your stash right now that makes you think of someone and only need to find a pattern?
• What could you sew today (or on your next day off) to let someone know you're thinking of them?

Stitching someone a homemade present represents dedication. It also means love because you're taking time out of your busy day to spend time on a project.

Quilting your Legacy means you're leaving lasting sewn projects with love to your favorite people.

When reflecting on your past projects, who haven't you have, you made a homemade present? What project have you been meaning to start or finish but haven't yet? Now is the time.

8 Reasons Why you should give homemade gifts to your favorite people:

1. Unexpected
2. One of a Kind
3. Thoughtful
4. Do what you love
5. A gift they will treasure
6. Share your talents
7. Personalization
8. Present for the person who has everything

The December holidays are a time to step back and reflect on how we can show our favorite people we love them. A handmade gift could include a quilt, a new table topper, tree ornament, or so much more with a needle and thread.

What will you create for one or more of your favorite people?

The fine print:
