Talkin Turkey

Talkin Turkey is ready for quilting. It was such a fun quilt to put together, didn't make much of a dent in my stash. I will be working on that for 2015! I would really like to not buy fabric and use up what I have !!! Wish me luck.

I have never made a Dresden plate quilt. I often think of it, I have the I think I will make it . I have been collecting some Kaffe Fassett fabrics and think they would make wonderful dresden's with a bright white background.
I did take a weekend to quilt these Cancer Charity Quilts. I belong to a Facebook group called Just Us Quilters, if we want donations for blocks for charity, we put our name on the list. Well my name came up and my mailbox was busy.  Last week I delivered six to the unit, have ten more to finish. The blocks are 12" square, the quilts are 4x5 blocks, so a nice size. Here are the six being delivered. g
My cousin Bev , friend Eileen and myself after a fun afternoon of sewing. 

 The block pattern is Old Susana from Quilters Cache.

I have been down with the flu, it is very nasty. I had the flu shot, but apparently it is not doing much against the strain that is going around this year. Wishing you all a healthy New Year. 
Thanks for stopping by.
Oh, I have been making box kite blocks,  I had a tub of 2 1/2" strips cut, will have some pics soon.

I love the Turkey Tracks quilt, nice bright colors. I am also trying to use up my stash but I went and bought all new fabric for a quilt Friday! Silly me! That is awesome about the cancer quilts, nice job.

Yes, this flu is a stinker, I have not been this sick for 20 years. And it just won't seem to clear out!

But never mind, you've managed a lot of productivity anyway. Love the turkey/goose tracks! And some Kaffe dresdens will be gorgeous. :D
