HINGHAM, Mass. - BostonChron -- Add some flair to your fall wardrobe with our Goldenrod Fall Maxi Skirt. Maxi skirts are the essence of comfort, versatility, and style, and this new pattern by designer Lauren Merciris gives you the option to add a button closure down the front or use a simple elastic waistband.

Celebrate the colors of fall with a new quilt block that's a perfect project for new quilters and beyond. Our Autumn Abundance Dutch Windmill Quilt Block pattern is a traditional pattern that all quilters should have in their repertoires. Make it with precuts like fat quarters and fat eighths to make a stunning 16-inch square block. Turn it into a throw quilt or an eye-catching pillow.

Think you can't sew leather at home? Think again. Designer Don Morin shows you how to make his Classic Men's Leather Wallet in a detailed, in-depth tutorial. This wallet is designed with all the best features in mind: compact, but with a large capacity. This sleek and stylish wallet makes a great gift!
