Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Americans (for the rest of you, happy Thursday)! I hope you are having a fabulous holiday, eating plenty of good food, and finding some quiet corners for reading and resting. Once the hoopla dies down, perhaps you’d like a crafting project for the long weekend? I would LOVE to know how to make a quilt, but I don’t. However, I just might try to follow these instructions to make this hanging quilt for my office. Even better… using this as a cover for a pillow for my office chair! (Now, just need to remember how to use my sewing machine – no big deal right? ;)) I also think it would make an adorable nursery hanging, featuring children’s books!
Would you attempt this one?
