Do you celebrate Friendsgiving? If you aren’t familiar with the term, it was added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary earlier this year and refers to a Thanksgiving celebration with a circle of friends. There are different theories on the origin of the term ranging from a Twitter post to the popular television show Friends to an ad campaign. Unlike other holidays, there’s no official Friendsgiving date and the traditions are as different as those who celebrate it! After a year like this, why not honor all the occasions that pairs gratitude with friends and family? Here are some ideas for setting your table!

If you’re a fan of Halloween, then Halloween quilt projects are a must on your to-do list! There’s spooky new fabric hitting store shelves, just calling out to become festive projects to decorate your home and celebrate the season.
Maybe it’s because I’m spending so much more time at home or maybe it’s the sudden change in weather, but my desire to dress up the house for fall seems to be stronger than ever! Normally, I feel a little regret with taking down summer things and getting ready for fall, but not this year! If you’re like me and ready to embrace the change in seasons, then you’re probably ready to whip up some cozy feeling new projects.
Confession: I'm not much of a decorator. We have two little boys, so our house is highly, highly functional. It's nice, but no one is coming over to take pictures for your favorite homemaking magazine any time soon. None the less, every year, like clockwork, I am possessed with a desire to freshen things up as we head into the holidays. I'm sure it has something to do with how much more time we're spending inside, how many people we always seem to have over as friends come back to Atlanta to see family, etc, and, well, did I mention the holidays?
Happy Thanksgiving! It's the time to reflect on all that we are grateful to have in our lives. Whether it's the big things like your family, friends, pets, health and occupation or the small things like a good cup of coffee and early holiday decorating, taking a moment to appreciate what you have is important. This is especially true in times like these. So to all our quilters, thank you. Without you, we wouldn't have the beauty of a good quilt or the excitement of a new die. Today, we want to share a favorite tutorial of ours that captures the sentiment of the season.
