Thanksgiving Quilt Top


I haven't forgotten about Halloween, really. In fact, tonight I'll be staying up late attaching some ears to a hood and stuffing a tail.
Anyways . . I've made Halloween, Christmas, and Valentines Day blankets. Now it's time for Thanksgiving quilts. These were really easy ( I think I always say that). It was inspired by a different quilt which I can't find right now.
Because I make three of these, I always make them as simple as possible. I plan on doing a brown gingham check for the back and binding. I always embroider their name on them and we cuddle with them all holiday season.

all the material was purchased at Joanns. I'll show you the pictures after they're quilted - but I won't get that until after Halloween is over.

I love that you have quilts for all holidays. So cool.

Did you just sew the small square right on the larger square? (Dumb question alert!)

Love it! You say it's easy, but those of us who are all ogre thumbs when it comes to sewing know better. What a talent you've got!
So nice to meet you!
