No, I haven't gone out in the woods looking for a turkey but they are hard to find in stores around here in September. Chad is giving a speech on how to do something and as he usually does, he makes it difficult. He's giving his speech on how to fry a turkey so he (WE) will get up at 5:30 Tuesday morning so he can fry his turkey, then I will bring it to school at the designated time. The grocery stores around here didn't have their turkeys yet and we were about to give up but I found one at Wal-Mart this evening. Solved that potential problem!
I finished the top I was making for the wrecker driver but I just think it looks too much like Christmas. I really like it. I had planned to quilt it using Baptist Fans but I see where feathers would look really good in those background areas. Dad told me last week that Randy's favorite color is green. I was pretty shocked since I hadn't known that when I started this top and the backing I found with the old tow trucks is green. I started another quilt for him that will have green but not red so it won't look so much like Christmas. Here's the blocks I have done so far.
And, here's what the whole quilt should look like. Thoughts?
