    Good Looking Turkey

    I am looking for an applique Turkey about 12" to 14" tall to use as a wallhangar in my home. It seems like all the turkey's I have seen are either too small or very ugly. Any ideas where I might find a good looking one?
    Thanks

    A lot of the time I am looking for an applique design, I will do a google search for free clip art. Here are some sites for free clip art for "Turkey" . You may have to enlarge the picture to the size you want it to be. Might be difficult to find one that is already the perfect size.

    Don't know about an applique, but we had about 40 live ones here yesterday. They come to eat the seed that falls from the 2nd floor bird feeders, with the more adventurous ones flying up to the 2nd floor deck to eat directly from them. There were 6 toms all displaying. Fun to watch.

    Missouri Star Quilt Co had a tutorial on YouTube for a turkey made from a dresden plate pattern. You can view it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHBW_VbX6QY
    I believe they actually did two different tutorials for turkeys as I remember viewing more than one.

    That's funny we have a lot of them too. Very pretty when all the feathers are spread out.
