A little Thanksgiving and a UFO no longer

 I worked up a little turkey wall hanging for my parents for Thanksgiving.  

I started it last year but just never finished it.  I used the Dresden Plate template to make the feathers and body.  Then appliqued it to the background fabric.  I used a meandering loopy quilting design for the background.  Wish I would of took the picture outside it is a bit blurry.  

I also completed one of my UFO's quilt tops this week, my Prism Quilt Top.  Originally blogged about here
I pieced the back to include the diamond shape from the front.  The quilting is not the straightest but I am really happy how it turned out.  Here are a couple close-ups of the quilting. 

I stitched in the ditch in the grey area and then did free motion loops.  I used a ruler to get the diamond shape in the blue fabric. I will have load up the next quilt so I can practice some more.  I need a lot more practice is needed, a lot more. 

I used Kona Navy for the binding and the finish size is 60" x 60".   

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.
