Turkey, anyone?

I started this turkey quilt years ago but never got around to finishing it. This is the tutorial I used; it's very simple with a Dresden ruler and some scrap fabrics. I didn't love the way that particular turkey looked, so I sketched my own version, but it's similar to the design featured in the tutorial.

My husband, somehow, found the quilt top. He brought it to my attention and asked me if he can use it for Thanksgiving this week. I was so touched! It is an ordinary and unfinished quilt top! He thought it was very cute. Well then! I guess I will just have to finish it.

I was afraid people may not know it's a turkey, so I stamped a few letters there just in case! I like the way it came out. These pumpkin fabrics came in handy; I used it for the back. I like it so much I may make  something else with it.

This adorable turkey is now on the wall ready to greet our guests this week. What are your plans for Thanksgiving? We are having a big party!

Happy Thanksgiving! :)

That's adorable! It's too bad I didn't see this before Thanksgiving -- I totally would have copied it! :D
