Dots on Dots Blog Hop

Dots on Dots and Turkey Trots!!! That's my theme, and I'm stickin to it!  :-) Cause you know that turkey day is are soon approaching. Hey, I just might even be ready for it this year!

The first thing I could think of when Madame Samm posted this hop, was my Turkey Trivet Tuxedo from last year. It would be perfect, so I changed it up a bit and made it a 12 1/2" quilt block. 



So...... what do ya think?  Everything has a "dot" of some kind on it, accept the beak. I just couldn't seem to find anything that worked for that. Close enough though right?  LOL!! 

I love the Dresden fan ruler. And I see that it's been a favorite with many on this blog hop! :-) It's because it's just a couple of cuts, and one seam across the top and you have a blade.  It really doesn't get much easier than that. For this guy stitched 11 fan blades together and pined them to my block to center it. (a finger press down the middle helps line things up)


Make sure you fold the raw edge on the bottom fans under, so you can top stitch them down. I personally prefer to top stitch my blades to my block before I cut the excess off, just in case things shift a bit!


You can download Turkey Pattern...

 
It's all fusible applique, cause that's my favorite!

I found a fun Thanksgiving print that I just had to have, so I made a table runner to go with my Turkey mini quiltie.


A couple more smaller Dresden Fans were used in the center.


There you have it. I am all dotted up and ready for Turkey day!


Here is a list of today's bloggers.
Make sure you stop by and visit them all!

Ohhh, I know what your waiting for...

A layer cake (10" squares) of the "Classic Dot Sampler" from Connecting Threads. One of each glorious color!  Can you give me a big whoa-hoo??  :-)
