HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the USA.  I just want to share with you pictures of two quilts that fit the theme of the day.  Both have been shown on my blog in the past.

The first is "Pumpkins and Turkey Feathers".  A Jan Patek pattern.  You can read about it here.
The second quilt is wall hanging size and was made by an old friend.  I made her one as a gift.  Every time I would see it hanging in her home, I commented that I should have made myself one.  She surprised me one day with one that she made from the same pattern.  A Country Threads pattern was used.
Enjoy your day!

Love your Thanksgiving quilts! The Country Threads one has been on my UFO list for some time. I think I just need one more turkey and another house. I'm hoping that seeing yours will inspire me to finish mine in 2011. Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh yes, these are really nice. What a lot of work in them to have them up for one week? two weeks? We aren't into decorating so much here in Australia. I guess, it cheers you guys up as it becomes more wintery.
