Happy Thanksgiving!

After sleeping late (very, very late) I finally feel like I’ve caught up a little on my sleep. First up on today’s task list was to finish the binding on the donated top pieced by Helen (from Bonnie Hunter’s Orange Crush pattern).


I just love the texture the clamshell quilting gave to it. The pantograph is Improved Clamshell by Kathie James.


I’ve got a small turkey breast cooking and then I plan to make my Mom’s dressing and have a mini Thanksgiving feast.  I’ll also start another set of blocks for our HeartStrings Holiday Block Party, set up another quilt for tying, and work on quilting my Aunt’s 2nd top.

I got a late start but it’s going to be a busy day! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday.

    Beautiful quilt and perfect choice for quilt pattern! Hugs and scratches to Chesty … hope he gets a little turkey dinner, too! Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Glad to see that Chesty is better. That Orange Crush is beautiful. I wonder if I could manage an over-all clamshell design on my domestic machine… It’s a big quilt.
