Giving Thanks

 It looks like I have the wrong holiday!! Here is the final block of the Bible quilt. The original  has embroidered "rays" coming out of the sun but I didn't really like it well enough to add it. I think it is obvious it is the sun.
 I finally got the small borders on the sides yesterday. I need to piece a backing and then get it ready to give away for Christmas. I'm thrilled with it so I hope the recipient is too.
 Here's my little pumpkin pin cushion from Elizabeth at Sunflower Fields Pattern Co. Mine is the simple version compared to hers, but I think it is very sweet. Thanks for your generosity Liz and your help in getting it together.
And for those of you in the United States have a safe and grateful day as you celebrate Thanksgiving. We are down to three- a Thanksgiving first for me!!

  10. I have some Bible blocks ready for the words to be embroidered but just have not been in the mood to do it. Your blocks look very good all put together. I don't think the sun needs any rays embroidered either.

    Hope you are having a nice Thanksgiving. We are just back from going out for a turkey dinner with our friends. Good eats! I told them I am thankful for a big stash of fabric!
