    Thanksgiving Dresden Tablerunner







    It is wrinkled because since I wasn't hosting Thanksgiving day, I decided to take it with me to work on - lol then didn't have the patience to iron it before taking pictures.

    I have more dresdens made up and purchased more browns and beiges to make the Missouri star quilt company's big turkey wall hanging. Yes, it's after thanksgiving but I am hosting it next year at my house, so I gotta get working! And am almost done with new Thanksgiving placemats for next year. But if gifts get in the way, I may finish them after Christmas.


    Auditioning backgrounds (decided afterwards that I liked it too much to be a wallhanging so, a loooooong tablerunner it became):

    The fabrics in your turkey go perfect for a fall and Thanksgiving tablerunner! It doesn't look wrinkly from here!

    Beautiful colors. No wrinkles here. Sometimes you just got to make what feels right, even if it's for next year. Nothing like being way ahead of the game.

    Thanks for the compliments - it was my first attempt at Dresden plates. It was fun once all the grunt work was done.

    On black Friday I purchased a bunch of browns and beiges for the turkey!!

    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.
