    I have a couple silicon spatulas that I bought just because they were on clearance– didn't really expect to use them much, but I lover them! I use them all the time! Your fork and spoon are SO cute! They remind me of the "Big Fork And Spoon" episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond"! 🙂

    I love my olive wood stirrer I bought in Greece this past november. I should have bought a ton of them…….I went to buy one here in Louisiana for my daughter and they were like six times the price!!!!

  12. Linda says:

    My favorite kitchen utensil is a meat mallet. I use it often to turn whole almonds into crushed almonds for my oatmeal and granola! Bet I'm the only one who mentioned that kitchen tool! LOL Thanks for the chance to win.

  13. Aleisha says:

    I love your Fork & Spoon. I remember my mom having the wooden set in our kitchen when I was a kid. I recently found a metal set at a thrift store for .50 each. Of course, I couldn't pass that up. I've recently changed the colors of my kitchen and have painted them red.

    Also, your quilting is beautiful.

  14. Aleisha says:

    My favorite kitchen utensil is my silicon spatula, as well as my KitchenAid mixer (if that counts as a utensil). I forgot to mention in my last comment that I also follow your blog.

  15. Judith says:

    My favorite utensil; I purchase for my first kitchen living on my on was an expensive item, a kitchen knife. Also my mom's iron skillet. I still have them both. When I was young, my mom had a set of spoon and fork on her kitchen wall with flowers. I never thought of it until I saw your pattern and reminded me. Thanks for the pattern. Judith, Texas

  16. Joy says:

    Wow! Thanks for the template, I will def' have ago. I have never done any free motion quilting. Your's is amazing. I found you after seeing your comment on crazy mom's blog.

    My IKEA spatula; it's extra wide and extra rigid and perfect for scraping a bowl. Not to mention it is red and white; my favorite color combo. I don't live near an IKEA and should have bought extras when I went there last time; I fear a melty-mishap someday and I may lose it.

    I am now a follower of your blog, looks great! I have also subscribed to your posts. I very much like the tutorial, the knife and fork will be on my wall soon!

    My favorite kitchen utensil is my Chef's Knife.

  19. Alice R. says:

    Love it! My mother-in-law also had a big spoon and fork.

    My favorite utensil right now is a power one. I got an immersion blender for Christmas, and I'm so loving it!

  20. DebbieM says:

    My favorite utensil is my whisk, I have them in all sizes, I love the Pampered Chef Party ones, they work so well! This is so cool. I love the knife and spoon and you brought back memories, my Mom had a set hanging in her kitchen above the stove. I hadn't thought about them in years!! I'll have to make one of these in her memory. Thank you for the giveaway!!

  21. DebbieM says:

    I am now a follower to your blog and I love the applique that you do. I have never tried this of fear of messing it up, but I've got to try this spoon and fork. Thanks again.

  22. Jeanie says:

    Love the big fork and spoon! Remember that episode of Everybody Loves Raymond?! I guess I love my little spoon rest that says "rest in grease." Thanks so much!

  23. DebbieM says:

    Oops! Made a mistake above, I am getting your posts by Google Reader, I'd much rather receive them in my email, but I don't know how to make that happen. Oh well, Google Reader is good I guess!

  24. Linda V says:

    I have this little narrow spatula that I've had since the 1970's. I use it all the time and would love to find a replacement, but never see anything like it anymore. Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  25. cakegirl says:

    My favorite kitchen tool has to be my Le Creuset spatulas. They are silicone and the handle is removable for easy cleaning. This is just the cutest design. Thank you for sharing the pattern and for a very generous giveaway.

  26. Mimi says:

    My most favorite kitchen utensil is the kitchen ladle – probably because I love soup so much but on a deeper level it reminds me of my mom and dad (I inherited their ladle).

  27. Sharmond says:

    What a great idea for a fork and spoon! I like it! A spatula is a great utensil that I use. But, I can remember my mom turning fried eggs over with a spoon and I did that for a long time myself. You know we didn't always have all these kitchen gadgets.

  28. piece peace says:

    I must make one of these for my kitchen asap. I love it…especially because I remember seeing these in many kitchens growing up. I am a new follower of your blog. Love your graphics in your banner. How did you do that?

  29. piece peace says:

    My favorite kitchen utensil is the pizza wheel/cutter. We use that for everything in our house. We had one break a few weeks ago and it was tough living without it before we got a new one. Thanks for the super tutorial.

  30. Beeshebags says:

    I just recently bought myself a pair of solid metal kitchen scissors and I'm loving them….they are sooooo heavy though, but at least I won't keep snapping the crappy plastic handles and they were only a couple of dollars dearer than my usual cheapies….gotta love 2 for one deals!


  31. Elizabeth says:

    I have to make one of these! My Mom had a wooden hanging in her kitchen and your tutorial brought back a great memory that had me chuckling. Mom was constantly sweeping up "dust" from the top of the radiator and couldn't figure out why it was always so dirty there. Come to find out that the giant wooden utensils had some sort of bug in them and what she was wiping up every day was actually sawdust from them chewing away. Needless to say, those things came down and went out the door right quick once she figured it out .. lol
    Thanks so much for sharing this tutorial 🙂

    My favorite kitchen utensil is a very sharp butcher's knife that I've been using forever. My husband dutifully sharpens it whenever I ask him to and I use that thing for everything. He keeps teasing that one of these days there's just not going to be enough blade left to sharpen .. lol

  32. Blondie says:

    My favorite kitchen tools are my wooden spoons!!! I've had some for years and my mother gave me some of hers that belonged to my grandmother and those probably belonged to my great grandmother. Wooden spoons never go out of style and have such character!! They go together with all my black cast iron pots that have been handed down to me over generations. I have some that belonged to my husband's mother that belonged to her mother . . .

  33. Aletta says:

    What a cuties! I have to make one of those!

    My favorite kitchen tool is a beater. I love to make scrambles eggs, homemade sauces etc. Thanks for a chance to win!

  34. Verena says:

    Thanks for the tutorial, it really looks great!
    My favorite kitchen tools are my sharp knives. I hate it if I have to cut sth and the knives are not sharp.

  35. Rebeckah Austin says:

    I am totally going to make one of these! except I want to make a place mat and have the silverware in their proper places and a plate. To teach how to set a table! I think my favorite kitchen utensil is a wooden spoon. 🙂

  36. JCnNC says:

    Favorite utensil this week is my strawberry stem plucker – probably cost 39 cents but very handy. Love the quilting on your little quilt. Judy C

  37. Gill says:

    I love your spoon and fork! thank you!
    My favourite utensil is my potato masher – I have one I use in the kitchen and one I use in my art work!!

  38. Linda says:

    Very cute tutorial…my favourite kitchen utensil? I have a little whisk that I won at a Pampered chef party…it is such a good little tool.

  39. LethargicLass says:

    I would love to win this… I was already on Etsy to see if there were any charm packs left LOL… my favourite utensils are the plastic spoons that look like the wooden ones? It's just that the porous wood creeps me out, but I love the shape LOL

  40. MoeWest says:

    I remember those big wooden fork and spoon sets for the kitchen wall. Your project looks great! I love the chopper that fits on my blender. It makes cutting onions so easy.

  41. Judy1522 says:

    I remember the big wooden fork and spoon hanging on the wall in the kitchen at my friends house when I was a kid. My favorite kitchen utensil is my wire whisk.

  42. Sandy D says:

    My favorite kitchen utensil is a small "lifter" for taking squares out of the pan and is made by Pampered Chef. It lifts out the most delicious squares that a person can make LOL

  43. Regina says:

    Oh my goodness! I love your Retro Kitchen pattern. When I think about growing up in the 70s I picture my mom's afro and the wooden Fork & Spoon on the kitchen wall!!!! My favorite kitchen utinsil is my Pampered Chef whisk! I love using that thing and plan some meals around being able to use it!

  44. Marcia W. says:

    My favorite Kitchen utensil is my sharp paring knife. Thanks for the lovely tutorial and giveaway (I commented on a prior post too because your tutorial posted early on sewwequilt).

  45. tpott says:

    Great idea for a quilt. Growing up someone in our family had a big wooden fork and spoon on their wall, I can't remember who. I'm a follower. ;-> Toni Anne

  46. Bobbie says:

    my favorite kitchen utensil- my wooden spoons, my garlic press, my potato peeler- I take all three to my sister's house when I visit because I like *mine* better and I always end up cooking! I actually just bought her some spoons because I was baking and didnt have mine with me!

  47. Tracy says:

    I just came by to tell you that I seriously love the fork & spoon wallhanging–SO cute, and yes, something that I remember from growing up. Don't throw my name in for the giveaway 🙂
