Wild Turkey


The RSC colour for April was "multicolour." That could mean many colours in one fabric, but I chose to interpret it as many fabrics in different colours. As I cut the fabric for each month, I put aside extra for these blocks.

I first planned to make three multicolour blocks, but then I started to have doubts about just how wild they would look! I made extra green blocks instead. But, now they are done I do rather like them.


Most of my pieced sashing is made (I took a break from quilting Picnic). I still hope to make my Thanksgiving Day goal for the finished top, but I'm thinking it's at best 50/50 right now.

Bonnie Hunter has announced her next mystery, On Ringo Lake. I've been waffling about that quite a bit too. I planned all along to make it, but then I started thinking maybe I should finish more stuff first. But, then I started to think about a new colour scheme...and now I may do it after all. This one will be smaller than previous mysteries, and that leads me to believe that it will be more densely pieced. I'm sure it's going to be beautiful. And actually, I think I've been able to deduce quite a lot just from the outside measurements! I'm sensing a lot of aqua HSTs in my future...

In the meantime, please check out the other RSC participants, right here. I think several are close to finished tops by now!

  11. Those Wild Turkey blocks are cool! I've liked each and every color way. . . .but, now that I've seen the wild. . .I think these are my favorites! I probably will just drool over Ringo Lake; but, may print the clues. . . .just in case I join in very late!

    1. Thanks, Terry! Yes, I have a feeling Ringo Lake is going to be another good one. I tell myself, somehow, the ones that need to be finished will be finished!

  13. Oooh fun! I like the rainbow scrappiness of these blocks. They don't look busy at all. I justify doing Bonnie's quilts by using up older stash for the project. I should be finishing more, but Bonnie's mystery are so fun, it's hard to punish myself for not finishing projects by sitting this one out.
