Thanksgiving Is Coming

Whoa! Hold on here. Have I completely lost it? Nope, I do know that Thanksgiving has come and gone, and it's Christmas that is fast approaching.

I still haven't found time in the past couple of days to spend on any on-going or new quilting projects so thought I'd show you this (old) piece. Seeing other people's work is something I really enjoy as it frequently gives me ideas so I'm hoping some of my quilts might do the same for you.

"Thanksgiving Is Coming" is the name I gave this wall hanging that I made a few years ago. You guessed it . . . right before Thanksgiving. It's not an original design but I have no idea where I saw the pattern. I haven't used the wall hanging in the past couple of years but when I was looking for something seasonally appropriate to hang over our bed a week or so ago, this came to the forefront.

It's not very large, only about 28" square, and I hand quilted it.

Originally, when I finished it, I just wasn't that crazy about it. But I think it's growing on me as time goes on. For some reason, I'm really liking the looks of it now. Go figure.

Hi, Beth - Yup, all of the old, traditional basket blocks are always attractive, don't you think? You could take this pattern and depending on your fabric and color choices, make it work for ANY time of year.
