Gobble, Gobble Mr. Turkey

Hello Dear Friends! It has been a busy few weeks for me. First there was a family vacation in mid-October, followed by Halloween, which quickly led to Houston's Quilt Market about 26 hours later. After 3-days at Market, there was the Quilt Festival, and just generally getting my house back in order since my husband and child had been left to do a lot by themselves (which they are generally good at, except dishes are put away in the most random places!) We also received all the Cub Scout popcorn orders that we had sold earlier in September, so deliveries had to be made. Whew! Exhausting.

Today I have to make my 9 ornament quilt blocks that I am exchanging for the Christmas Ornament Block Exchange I am hosting with The Sparkly Elephant Sewing Lounge, in Friendswood, Texas. I made a few blocks for samples and blogging, but I have to get on to making the ones for the exchange which will happened this upcoming week.

However, there is no time for rest because next week is Thanksgiving! I'm excited because this year we are going to be visiting my dad's side of the family, which we don't often get the do. In honor of this upcoming holiday, I made this cute frameable fabric Turkey.

It was such a quick and easy project, and one that I offer as a class for kids and special needs groups. I took some photos while doing the project. (It's actually as bright as you see in these photos.)

The pattern is from Bear Thread Design's A Season the Applique book. It was a simple applique project using a 8x10 background and placed in a frame. This was a no sew project since I used fusible to put it together. Putting it in a frame helps so I don't have to quilt it.

I have a variety of Frameable Fabric Art projects I am excited to work on in the upcoming months. I also made this frameable heart that I did quilt if you want to see a comparison. I love both methods.

Well, I'm going to try to seek back into the studio and work on some projects while the boys watch a movie.

Until next time, stay #CreativelyInspired!
