Star Turkey, 42 x 42", wall hanging pattern by Sew Many Visions
Thanksgiving Day in the United States is a holiday created especially for the purpose of expressing gratitude. We at Quilt Inspiration want to say a giant "Thank You" to all our wonderful viewers and readers who have been so supportive and kind for almost four years now. We're especially grateful for over 1700 followers, over 3,000,000 page views, and over 50,000 members on our Pinterest website. We greatly appreciate and value your participation.
Above, we're showing a patchwork Thanksgiving quilt that is completely pieced. Sewn in traditional autumn colors, this quilt features a large turkey in the center, with tail feathers in half-square triangles. Visual interest is enhanced by a log cabin inner border arranged in triangles to create a large star, with smaller Amish stars in each corner.
Actually, this pattern could be modified for many different holidays, simply by replacing the figure in the center medallion and changing the colors. For Easter, try a bunny in the center, with lavender and periwinkle log cabin blocks. Or, how about a cheerful Santa for Christmas, with pine green log cabin blocks and bright red Amish stars in the four corners? The possibilities are endless, as are our thanks to you, dear readers! A very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
