To all of our stateside friends a very Happy Thanksgiving!
I made this middle turkey several years ago, like maybe 18. Over the years I have found patterns on ebay and various other outlets. They crack me up! The pheasant was an especially great find, I think.
The turkey on the right I picked up at a small guild quilt show in the boutique. It went un-noticed and unloved until it was tucked under my arm, then everyone wondered where I found it. The early bird catches the turkey?
How is this for vintage kitch. I surmise that they were made circa late 50's or 60's, it hard to date a thing this precious. My small group friend, Jane, actually gave me these popsickle sticks decorated with fabric and felt to make a lovely, and do mean lovely centerpiece, or in this case stoop decoration. Thanks, Jane!
And lastly, this is a little quilt I made a long time ago. I used patterns from a much larger quilt, and then hand quilted it. I'm happy to see this old friend every year.
Wishing you all a happy gobble day!
