    I bought this from walmart. Does anyone have this centerpiece? What I am wondering is what color of thread did you use to sew it? I was starting to use an off white but not to sure if it looks good on the tail.

    Yes I got a picture. The turkey came with a small picture of it. I thought that after I had cut all the parts out I had thrown it away until you mentioned it. So I dug into my stuff and wa...la... I found it. Here it is. Answer to my question I used the black thread.

    The turkey is beautiful. What exactly are you doing with it? Are you making a quilt centerpiece or is it a cross-stitch pattern? Are you pieceing that turkey? Please share more info for inquiring minds! Oh and post pictures of your project please, I'd love to see!

    I got one of those too, along with the pumpkin. I cut them out, but that's as far as I got.

    Renee, the turkey wings and tail is quilted and the body and head is stuffed and has poly pellets for the weight.


    Tlrnhi, this turkey is the big one. I got this one last year after the holidays. You have the other one that I want. Yours came with the pumpkin.

    The side view looks better. I haven't used embroidery thread before and I used it thick when outlining the head and beak. Anyway For my first center piece I don't think I did too bad.
