It's The Last Day And My Day Of The Turkey Trot

What a fabulous week of turkeys, fall fabrics, and cozy looking projects!
Joan at Moosestash Quilting did a super job with hosting on this one.

It's my day to share what I made to meet Joan's challenge:

Think Turkeys, thankfulness, or Thanksgiving fabric. November also means beautiful colors
 of fall, so sew something with orange, golds, browns, greens or cranberry reds.

The fabrics are "Harvest Festival" by Benartex.
There are turkeys, feathers, and rich fall colors, plus metallic highlights.
Solid fabrics in the quilt are Benartex's New Hue.

The finished quilt measures 58" x 74"
The center block is a "Folded Corners" design with a star and pinwheel in the middle.

The pantograph for quilting was "Feathers in Bloom" by Urban Elementz.

Dresdens are one of my favorite blocks to create. They are great for scraps!

The leaves in our yard start turning brown in the fall, not rosy red or orange. 

There is a sparkle in the fabrics, but it was hard to photograph.
I love the feather fabric!

Our lemon tree stays green all year and by Christmas those lemons are totally ripe.

I used "Harvest Festival" to make a table runner earlier this year.
This pattern is in my Etsy store HERE.

White Rabbit Blog Hop Sign Up

Are you ready for the first 2024 blog hop?
The White Rabbit blog hop has the creative side of my brain working overtime.
I hope you'll join in the fun!



Make something with white fabrics, rabbits, or white rabbits. 

There is a tradition for people to say “white rabbit” first thing in the morning (have you 
ever heard of this?) The phrase is supposed to bring good luck for the rest of the month
Even President Roosevelt did this!

If you want to play along, email me!
