Strings! Geese! 9 patches –we had it going on!
We filled the American Legion hall full with quilters who traveled in from as far away as Michigan, New Hampshire, All over Pennsylvania and everywhere else to come to yesterday’s Talkin’ Turkey workshop.
Strings were a-flyin! Rotary cutters whizzing! Stitching, pressing, cutting, oh the fun!
Of course we had LOADS of red Talkin’ Turkeys going on – it’s great to see a quilt that can use so many leftovers of pieces from other projects and make them work all together. Quilters tend to LOVE red – and we all have a lot of red!
But I also loved seeing the other colors come to play and can’t wait to see what these versions will look like!
Piece up a rainbow!
Do something pink and frilly!
Cool aqua with a hint of coral!
Striking in black and white!
And watch your Leader & Ender Tumblers grow in the process!
What a super fun day to play!
You will find the pattern for Talkin' Turkey in my book String Fling, available in the Quiltville Store!

After yesterday’s 67 student hoopla, today will seem like a breeze with 53 for Carolina Christmas!
Oh, and we did something really cool – the American Legion prepared our lunch, and we took it outside to the pavilion to eat in the fresh air, and had our show and share outside as well! I think we’ll be doing that again today, and I’ll have those show and share quilts for you in a future post.
And yes. I needed some of this after 67 students!
((And several students were found here too! Ha!))
This is coming together!
I have started stitching the last fill in section on to the mother ship! I only got part way down one side before it was time to just call it a night and go to bed early – but this section WILL be finished while I am here!
Have a lovely Sunday, everyone – it’s the last Sunday of August, do something memorable!
