The Turkey Trot Blog Hop started Monday, hosted by the fabulous Joan @Moosestash Quilting.
The challenge this time is to "Think turkeys, thankfulness, or Thanksgiving fabric. November also means the beautiful colors of fall, so sew something with orange, golds, browns, greens or cranberry reds".
I love fall, and all those colors. Many thanks to Joan for another fun hop!
When I first started quilting back in the late 1990's, I saw this pattern in a magazine, and it was one of my first quilting projects. I thought of writing the gobble, gobble on it myself.
I have always loved the primitive type quilting and stitchery, and the turkey in the header was also one of my first projects.
Another of my long-ago Thanksgiving projects was this wool turkey banner.
A quilt shop in my town that used to be open in the late 90's through 2000's had a craft night once a month and we would make various projects, and one of the projects we made was this stuffed turkey.
Last week, a friend and I went to this vintage type shop that had it's Christmas decorations out, and I found this guy and just had to have him. It's something I would have made if I had seen the pattern.
What I finished for this blog hop was my Autumn Harvest wall hanging. This is a Bird Brains Design.
Last but not least, I purchased a fall panel called Autumn Harvest by Maywood Studio. It had a pumpkin, flowers, and a squirrel, in my favorite fall colors, and it was in flannel. I also purchased the striped fabric. I then found out there was sort of a pattern on Bonnie Sullivan, the designer's website, and purchased a fat quarter bundle so I could make the stars. I fussy cut the striped fabric so I could make the stars. After I got the top together, I wanted more of that stripe for the last border. Luckily I could still obtain it. I used my leaf die on my Accuquilt to cut out the leaves in the corners, and my Cricut to cut out the squirrels.
Be sure and visit the other bloggers and see what they have been working on. Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
