Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Betty Davis eyes......


Don't ask me why that song stuck in my head while I was sewing on these eyes.

Anyways, this is Betty the turkey.



I found this pattern on Sandy Gervais' blog  (Pieces of my Heart)   back in November 2009.  In fact, that is when I pieced this little quilt.  I did make one little change from hers though.....I added legs.
Apparently life got in the way since I started this little guy/gal.

Well, one wasn't enough, so now I have a flock.


My daughter had seen this and said she wanted one.  The two are made from one charm pack (Amazing) with just a couple more squares added from the stash. 
This is number 3 and 4 from my five little quilts. 

Number 5 is my half-square triangle quilt table topper.

These hst were left overs from another quilt that I made.

Here's a close up of the quilting.


....and here's a look at the backing (one of my favorite fabrics).


Wow....all my little quilts are now finished.  I am a happy camper. 

Now it is time to get the backing made for the Cherry Tree quilt and start getting projects prepped for my upcoming quilt retreat.

See you when I come up for air.

  2. Love the little quilt and the quilting designs really enhance the HST's. Of course, pink and brown - how can you not love it...

    Your turkeys are much cuter than the ones that periodically stroll through our yard...and I like those legs:o)

  3. I love your little quilts, the quilting looks amazing, especially the feathers. I think I have that song stuck in my brain now.
