Thanksgiving for me consisted of tons of pie.  Pumpkin pie.  Apple crumb pie.  Pumpkin coffee pie.  And even lemon cake.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

By the way pictured above are napkins I made using my favorite Amy Butler fabric.

Here is a sneak peak of my latest completed project.  It features my one of my favorite fabrics, there are many.

Since the project features plaid it is a bit trickier.  I feel successful in saying that I was able to line the plaid up pretty darn well.  I will post more about the project soon.

Yes, that’s right queen size.  That is the size of my next quilt.  Adventurous? Yes.  Fun?  Yes.  Absolutely crazy? Double Yes!

I am excited about this quilt for two reasons.

1. It is the first quilt where I have mixed prints from different designers.  Within the quilt there is a little bit of Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Jennifer Paganelli, Erin McMorris, and other designers.  In my past quilts I have used all of my fabric from the same fabric line.  This results in a very matchy, matchy quilt.  By using different designers, and fabric lines my quilt is going to be much more mismatched which is exactly what I am looking for.

2. This is the first quilt where I am not using a pattern or remaking a quilt I’ve seen.  I am currently just focusing on one block at a time and seeing what happens.

Plus it is the biggest quilt I will have ever made.  So I guess that is 3 firsts.  It is going to be made up of 16 large squares like below.  No borders, just pure craziness and chaos.  So here I go …

All crafters have those projects that they eye for a long time just wanting to complete but for some reason never get around to.  I have been eyeing the Tulip Skirt pattern by Wikstenmade since the first time I saw which I believe was about a year ago.  First of all I would just like to say that Jenny of Wikstenmade is amazing and after working with her pattern I believe it even more.  This skirt was easy and a quick sew.  The only difficulty I had was with the buttonholes, and that was just because I was using such thick denim that my machine wasn’t cooperating.  In the end I made fake buttons with snaps underneath them.

I pretty much love this skirt.  Along with the pattern being easy it fits great.  I highly recommend the pattern.
