    Now that's a smug little turkey. Too small for anyone to want for Thanksgiving. He will survive and make you smile every time you look at him.

    Turkey Block

    Here is my Nov. block! I managed to get it done in spite of my machine making some very unusual sounds at the end.... time for a visit to the machine doc, I'm afraid. And, of course, I have an all day quilt class tomorrow...

    Lovelyl I agree with Sula your background fabric is awesome. Fantastic job on the turkey I eyeballed the pattern and drew it bigger and then found it was easier to make individual feathers. I think his eyes turned out to look more owlish then I intended. LOL. But he is finished and ready to be quilted so I'm ready to attach all the squares once I get Decembers block done.

    Jenniky.........Your Turkey block is just darling too!! I really like your idea about the individual feathers for his tail. You really had your thinking cap on for that great idea. I think his eyes look a little nervous, wondering if he will make it through turkey dinner day still alive!! Maybe he will get a Pardon from the President!! Thank you for sharing with all of us today.

    2 done

    Here are 2 (still have 2 to go) I still need to stitch around them but would like opinions as to what color thread to use. My 1st thought is always black to give it pop. Definitely don't want to use matching.
    What do you think?

    Joyce..........your two blocks so far are Beautiful!! Your fabrics are so pretty & really make those turkey's POP!! I think I would use green & blue thread on the turkey to the left then two shades of blue on the turkey on the right. Like light blue around the dark blue fabric & dark blue around the light blue fabric. What ever you choose I know that it will turn out spectacular!! Thank you for sharing & we will be anxious to see the next two blocks.

    I really like the front on view of your turkey on the left, could you please tell me where you found the pattern? I agree with the others about thread choice but I am also a fan of black.

    The pattern is by Sindy Rodenmayer at
    www.fatcatpatterns.com
    I love her patterns & if you go to the home page at fatcatpatterns the turkey pattern is free this month. But I changed it to suit my needs. Her blocks work up at 16 1/2" so I had to reduce it to 70%. Then I didn't want to do each of the tail feathers individually so I redrew the tail as just 3 whole pieces. I think that's the only changes I made.

    I got mine done. It was interesting to do. The background is really a bright white. not sure what happened. Yes, the turkey ended up being a little tilted. Didn't want to tear out.

    Have ya ever watched a turkey walk? They waddle so he's going to be tilted to one side or the other. He's the cutest one I've seen yet. Love the turkey tracks.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Wow everyone's blocks look so fantastic. Thanks for the pattern I've never done an applique but I wish to try it. I guess I'll have to do a search for some advice unless someone knows a good tutorial.

    The quickest way is to use fusible ( make use to use the light that can be sewn through) then stitch around either with a blanket stitch or even straight stitch.
    Hand appliqué takes longer but you get the raw edge hidden. There are some great tutorials here & you'll have to find which method you prefer.
    Remember have fun & don't stress over it.
    good luck

    Thank you so much for your chubby turkey pattern. It also introduced me to a new site. Appreciate your willingness to share
