Turkey Tracks

I wanted to make a small wall hanging for the office for November. I went out looking for ideas, when I came across the Turkey Tracks block over at Pat Sloan's blog. I went looking for a pattern and found one -- I bought Sandy Gervais' pattern. When I got it I quickly found that it was a "jelly roll" pattern. I'm fresh out of jelly rolls. So I came up with my own. I went to my EQ and came up with a block (6 1/2" square). This is what my Turkey Tracks quilt looks like.

(If you like this quilt I made up a few kits and listed them on my Etsy.)

Well I still wanted a small wall hanging for the office so I went back to EQ and drew up a smaller block and this is what I came up with.

Now I want to show you the back of this wall hanging.

While I was out checking out some great blogs, I came across this great idea for hanging small quilts. Instead of a sleeve. You take a 5" square fold it in half diagonally and put it on the corner of the quilt and then put your binding on. Slip a dowel in the pockets and you're ready to hang your wall hanging. I picked this idea up from --
pretty clever. Thanks your sharing Carol

Hope you have a great day. :o}
