He started as a simple panel by Patty Reed Designs. I've had this panel for several years, and finally remembered to do it this year.
I sandwiched the tail feathers with some batting and stitched through for the feathers.
|Tail feathers done.|
The wings have batting sandwiched between them, like the tail feathers.
|Quilted the wing feathers for dimension.|
|He looks decapitated, doesn't he?|
Did some hand stitching to add dimension to the face starting above the eye and defining his snood (that thing that grows on his face and hangs over his beak - I had to look that word up).
|Hand stitched the head/neck to the body and was done!|
|A glimpse at the back side.|
Timothy the Turkey will be joining us for Thanksgiving dinner this year.
I had planned to do some embroidery last night too, but didn't get to it. Sleep was calling me instead. Hope you had a good Friday Night Sew-In too.
