Pink Turkey


The RSC17 colour for October is pink, and my three pink Talkin' Turkey blocks are done.

Many people have said they're considering making these blocks too. I highly recommend them!


The design is by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville, and in my first post I shared the two places you can find it. It is fun to make and very forgiving, because you do a final trim of the strings before you put on the last round.

Even though I've now made many blocks in many colours, it still surprises me when I put on the last round and the block transforms from sort of messy to sharp and crisp!

And there are hardly any seams to match, either.

It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, so Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers!

I hope this is the only pink turkey anyone will be served.

  3. Pink turkey is better than BLACK turkey; all it needs is a few more hours! I like your pink turkey blocks they are perfect, as I hope your dinner turkey is too.

  8. Very pretty pink turkey blocks. Sounds like my kind of piecing project; no seams to match! I like.

    Going to by-pass the pink turkey and aim for a "bronzed" turkey here on the west coast. Wishing you a Happy Turkey weekend as well.

    1. Thanks, Jillian! Yes, some of those magentas can be really dark. Bonnie recently posted an all-pink version of this quilt, and it looked great. Well, I'm not sure I can remember any variations of this block that didn't work!

  13. This is going to be such a wonderfully scrappy quilt. I like that it uses strings too. I don't have the pattern but could probably figure out how to make it.....hmmmm.

  15. Luscious pink fabrics!! I enjoy string piecing, I love 9 patch so I think this could be a quilt block for me to make!

  16. Happy Thanksgiving! Every time I see these blocks I find myself wondering if I can come up with an improv version.
