this week

I'm so excited that this is the week of Thanksgiving here in the States! It's definitely one of my favorite holidays. I've been doing some gift sewing and some pleasure sewing.

This is another little zipper pouch I've made for a friend's birthday (just like the others I made a while back).

And after having a stack of fabrics set aside to make a quilt for us for forever, I finally decided on a wonky crosses pattern.

I fell totally in love with the Circa 60 campers and trees fabrics and have been saving them for a while. The overall color scheme I'm going with is inspired by this quilt on Flickr. I've been having so much fun making these blocks (I used Oh Fransson's tutorial to get started).

One last thing I wanted to mention. Jacqueline asked what pattern I used for the plus quilt in the mosaic in my previous post. I actually used my own pattern and measurements but Jeni has written up an awesome tutorial on how to make your own plus quilt. It's really just simple squares laid out in a plus pattern, what I'd call a lot of bang for your buck!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week! There are so many things I am thankful for and you, dear readers, are definitely one of them! I truly appreciate every comment. Happy Thanksgiving!
