Giveaway #5

I'm sharing my 7th birthday with you by having seven giveaways. We're up to #5.

There's plenty of time for you to make this cute applique'd turkey. I'll provide you with the pattern. In order to win, all you have to do is leave a comment for me on this post. The deadline is 12 p.m. EST, Tuesday, October 6.  Good luck!

What We've Been Working On

Maggie, Momcat and I have been spending a lot of time with geese lately. In fact, instead of Portugal by Moda, I'm calling this quilt Portugeese. There's 188 flying geese blocks and they're all done. You can see the borders on the ironing board, along with the square in a square blocks.  

I love the colors of this quilt and hope I can nudge Momcat to make all of her points line up correctly. 

Notice Maggie's giraffe on the floor?

We're listening to a really good book while we're sewing. It's by Dean Koontz and is called Brother Odd. It's a little macabre, a lot funny, and very respectful of Christianity. The narrator is terrific, too. Koontz has written a series of books featuring Odd, the main character. I'm looking forward to hearing them all.

The baby pumpkins have arrived. Yesterday Momcat spent some time at an Amish Farmers' Market. She came home with these cute baby pumpkins, delicious pumpkin bars, and oatmeal cookies. She seemed to forget all about us four-legged friends. Harumph!

You know the drill. Go be creative for 15 minutes!

Those white pumpkins look amazing. I makes me home sick because I know my parents must have so many nice pumpkins and squash that look amazing. They have such a huge garden. I would love to win that cute little turkey pattern. Your seven weeks of birthday giveaways is amazing. Thanks for sharing.

i just bought some tea towels and was wondering how to dress them up. That turkey would be great fun to do for hostess gifts. Please add my name to the give away!

Seeing your piecing makes me a little nostalgic for the quilting I once did. In fact, it reminds me that I have an ALMOST finished full size quilt that would make a nice project in these ever-cooling days. And the finishing work is the hand-work that I soooo love!

Thank you for the inspiration!

And best wishes to all of us vying for the appliqued turkey!

Oh I would absolutely love to make this wall hanging. I did a rooster wall hanging for my mom, and would love to put the turkey up in my kitchen.

Momcat finds the cutest projects! That turkey is adorable. I received in the mail today my envelope from Piwacket. I am anxious to attempt to make some boxes for Christmas gifts. Or maybe even a place to keep reward slips for my students! I know my grandson is going to love the Puppy fat quarter!
Thank you so much! A real treat!
