Free Autumn Thanksgiving Sewing Project Tutorial:
 
How to make a Thanksgiving Turkey Quilt
 
You Will Need:
 
about 1/3 of yard of cream fabric for quilt front and back
pre-packed quilt binding

heat bond or wonder under

This project is perfect for the whole family to get involved in. Cut and heat bond the turkey with little sewing. Then each family member writes on a feather what they are thankful for. Last the quilt gets put together and displayed year after year.

 
Pin It
 
Tape four 8.5"X11" pieces of computer paper together.
With a black permanent marker draw a turkey body.

Draw one feather.

This will be your pattern.

Pin and cut out one turkey body.

(If you do not have heat bond you can zigzag appliqué each feather on.)

Then pin and cut as many feathers as you would like on your turkey. I cut 18 since that is how many relatives were eating Thanksgiving dinner with us.

Cut quilt binding for the two smaller sides of the quilt.

Sandwich the quilt in the quilt binding and pin in place. Stitch along the outer edge as shown in the photo.

Do the same thing to the other two raw edges of the quilt.
