This panel from Northcott (called City Scene) came into the store with some coordinating fabrics. Our quilting guru was going to zip up a quilt top for display. Unfortunately, she's been rather tied up. Without a display piece, people just ignore this amazing piece of fabric. I'm no quilt top maker, but I thought a skirt would look wonderful. (Actually, it would also look amazing as a quilted jacket ... but a skirt was just so much faster to produce.)
Nothing fancy ... 2 panels ... lengthened by adding one of the coordinating fabrics. (I made this just about ankle length.) Side zipper. Big pleats to use up maximum width of the panel. The other coordinate we have is used for the waistband, and because I'm thinking of this as an "evening" skirt - a belt with a big bow.

I think that this skirt is ready for a party - not quite yet, because it does have to hang at the store for a while.
