Catch-Up After Thanksgiving

My hopes of having a turkey wall hanging finished before Thanksgiving vanished but I have kept working on them.  First up is a quilt top made from Jan Patek's "Blessings" pattern.  The pattern is in her book "When Wild Geese Fly".  The applique is done needle turn method.


The second top completed is from Cheri Payne's "Ever Thankful" pattern which is one of her newer patterns on her website.  Done in wool applique on cotton.

I have two blocks of four done for a third turkey wall hanging.  The design I am using is by Buttermilk Basin.  The pattern is "Give Thanks".  I am making a smaller size version of the pattern.  Wool applique on cotton.




I have been making some Christmas gifts and cannot share those just yet.  Busy, busy, busy!

Michelle Huddleston......you have left me some very nice comments but you are a no-reply blogger.  Would love to reply to you.

All very nice blocks! I love wool on cotton, mostly because I don't do needle turn applique'. I enjoy seeing yours though.

Happy Holidays!

I especially like the "Be Thankful" turkey. I looks so rich and it seems to be in mid-strut. Very nice.

Love your turkey pieces and I never thought to use the one from jan's book, need to go through mine again. You inspire me to get back to quilting and start making more of my own quilts.

I have yet to see a Cheri Payne design that I didn't like! The santa one in the blog header is awesome too! Excellent progress on the Give Thanks...I seriously need to get better at time management so I have more time to stitch! :-)
