Turkey Clone

What I did not mention yesterday in my turkey quilt that I actually made twin turkeys! The first one was delivered today (two hours after completion of label and sleeve) to Dave and Emily when I previewed their new home. They are having a few repairs and some painting done, and will move in on Friday. I loved their home and its nice woodsy view.

To make these guys, I loaded both turkeys on the Gammill at the same time and quilted them almost identically.

The clone will be a hospitality gift to Charlie's sister and her family, who will be hosting us for Thanksgiving weekend in Asheville, NC. We will be having dinner at the Grove Park Inn, a wonderful mountain resort. The next day, Lee usually takes me to some wonderful shopping opportunities and art galleries in Asheville, and then we meet the guys downtown at a microbrewery for a sandwich and a refreshing beverage.

And I may have to stop in at Waechter's Silk Shop on Saturday, which is in the neighborhood. Great eye candy!

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
