Happy Thanksgiving! 2020

I gifted these little gobblers to my grands for Thanksgiving -

Turkey coasters I made a few weeks ago.

Oops! I added a quick project to my list this past week. Today is my DIL’s birthday! I purchased this kit to make a Batik table runner for her maybe 2 years ago. And it got lost in the quilt cupboard. I did some digging to unearth it.

The jelly row and pattern made up the kit. I bought the black batik for the accent fabric, back, and binding.

I ended up using a gray thread to quilt just in the black batik.

Gifted today! She loves Batiks!

I have one more block to stitch up for Helen Godden’s Flower Power 2 quilt along. Here are blocks 6 – 8.

Carnation. Oh my! I see a portion I missed! Got to go back and finish that!

Lotus Flower

Columbine. Block 9, not photoed, is a Passion Fruit Flower. I’ll get to it this week, after Thanksgiving!

I did sew the first three sections of my son & DIL’s quilt together. I still need to add sashing over the seams as I’m following Pauline Rogers quilt-as-you-go method. Find her directions in her Quilt As You Go Handbook.

Happy Thanksgiving to my USA readers!

Last Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Finish quilting center of son’s quilt.  ✔️ Sorry, still no photo.
  2. Sew the first three sections together for son’s quilt.  ✔️
  3. Stay up to date on Flower Power 2 quilt along. ✔️ Blocks 1 – 8 are completed!  The last block was presented today. So hopefully later this week, I’ll finish it.

This Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Celebrate Thanksgiving! Since my family has decided to not have a family gathering this Thursday, (Covid), my local kids suggested a food swap for Thanksgiving. That way we are not all cooking the full traditional meal. I’m doing the turkey, dressing, gravy, and 2 pies. The kids are filling in everything else. I’ll let you know next week how the swap works out.
  2. Stitch up last block of Helen Godden’s Flower Power 2 quilt along.
  3. Add sashing to son & DIL’s quilt.

    That’s a pretty tablerunner! Looks like stained glass!

    I really like that table runner. You did a great job on it. And, I think I’d be happily surprised if I found a nice kit in my “stuff.” But I don’t really buy kits all that often.

    Hi Sharon! You are making the turkey, dressing, gravy, AND two pies??!! What’s left?? Okay, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, maybe a jello salad and some rolls. I think you got the short stick! HAHA – but it sounds like a fun idea. I just LOVE the batik runner. Cute, cute, CUTE! I like the pattern – it would be pretty in many different fabrics. Finally, the turkey coasters are too darn cute, too. Happy Thanksgiving and I’m looking forward to hearing how the swap went. Thanks for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne
