Eat. Win. Quilt.

November 14th, 2009

LITTLE did I know when asked what everyone was having for dinner on the previous post… that I would actually MAKE someone’s dish.  I was all settled in after treating my hubby out to a fine Kosher meal (the Costco hot dog stand), reading all the wonderful comments left for me… and then I read Vanessa’s.  She was taunting me to go see what she made for dinner.  Vanessa’s version of ding-dong-ditch.  Ding-comment-ditch.  SHE GOT ME!

I went.
I saw.
I HAD to make.

I think I said ohhemmgee about 20 times when I first saw it.  If you’re ohhemmgeeing too… hurry.  That little craft-minx Vanessa is dangling the fabric carrot for only a limited time - so order her pattern NOW.
I added a few potatoes to mine. Just a 6” circle stitched yo-yo style and then stuffed.  The carrots and potatoes were a good TV time project.  Though I should have paid better attention to what I was doing… I accidentally took a bite out of the Thanksfabrigiving turkey.  And now I’m stuffed.

random120Thank you all for the sweet comments on the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks giveaway. I wish I could have responded to them all - so group hug and thank you!   It was fun to see what was for dinner and what people’s fave color combos are at the moment.  Ramble, ramble, ramble… the meat and potatoes of it all (or turkey and potatoes) is that random.org picked Dorothy of Doki Quilts.  Congratulations, Dorothy!

Also on the pattern front - my “Two Happy” freebie-4-youbie pattern for Lecien, featuring Lecien’s ADORABLE new “Old New Fabric Collection 30’s” fabric… is now available on Lecien’s website on their FREE PATTERNS page.

    You are such a talented woman..The turkey and veggies are really cute..I gave you a 10 on the dancing with the chairs, by the way.

  21. The fabulous Kathi D allegedly said:

    That is HI-larious!!!! I may serve that to the vegan cousin who is visiting for Thanksgiving. Vegan! Like I know how to cook anything without butter and/or cream! I did buy a special refrigerator magnet the other day in honor of it all. It says “Meat is Murder. Tasty, tasty murder.” Was that wrong?

    Your Happy Quilts make me happy. I really should make something with my sixty-zillion 30’s FQs. You know, once you join that FQ club online, they just keep coming and coming and coming. Until you remember to call them one day and say that you have just been buried under the latest shipment and please stop for now.

    I made apple crisp for dessert tonight and topped it with ice cream, two scoops.

  22. The fabulous Caroline allegedly said:

  26. The fabulous Kim Walus allegedly said:

    Ooo! Now I’m really hungry for turkey. What a fun project to make for the Pre-Thanksgiving feast. At least it’s calorie free, right?

    Love it!! The carrots and potatoes are wonderful too!

  27. The fabulous V and Co allegedly said:

  29. The fabulous Joann allegedly said:

    I was watching the Travel channel the other night, and they were doing a piece on Voodoo Donuts! The commentator got to actually MAKE a voodoo donut, and it was so cooool! I thought it was pretty funny, since you had posted about your love for them. :) Wish I was there…

  30. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    So wait. Are you the one who does the cooking? I thought that was SW3. Nice job on the turkey — don’t forget to baste it!

    happy everything,

  32. The fabulous nanette allegedly said:

    love it and I love your new bag pattern in the latest magazine. you are on a roll big time.

  33. The fabulous AnyoneCanQuilt allegedly said:

    I love your stuffy turkey dinner! That is CUTE. Vanessa is a genius, I must head over there right away. And btw, pony was very disappointed when she found out that the ‘wine’ at church was really only grape juice. x

  34. The fabulous Cheryl allegedly said:

    OMW that turkey is yumolishous!!!!!!! What a sweet pattern! I surely have missed visiting your blog :-)!!!!

  35. The fabulous Paula allegedly said:

    OMG!!! That turkey is da bomb, dog!

    Going to grab your quilt pattern for myself now. Yippee!!

    For dessert? Why tomorrow night it will be Pumpkin Cranberry Bread….want some??

  36. The fabulous HollyinVA allegedly said:

    gobble, gobble & bob over to the sewing machine!
    that quilt is just precious. Do you think it would work using scraps? more random? or would that be busy?

    or how about a memory game type quilt for kids?
    instead of the 4-piece square use one piece of fabric & repeat it somewhere for the child to find?
    63 squares would keep a child busy for at least 10 minutes, yes?

    I am going to be a grandmom, x2 ! 1st bambino-mid January & #2 near 4th of July! could possibly be twins, too. yikes.
    happy holidays, Holly

  37. The fabulous Mary Ann allegedly said:

    Pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting…they’d go great with the turkey..gobble, gobble…I have to run off now and go get that pattern.

  38. The fabulous jaybird allegedly said:

    chocolate cake? i love that you added potatoes!!

  39. The fabulous Shelly W allegedly said:

    LOL!! This cracks me up!! I’m so so tempted to make this and take it to my M-I-L for Thanksgiving since she has always sticks her nose up to everything I cook (even though my husband swears I cook 10x better than her!).

  40. The fabulous Annette allegedly said:

    Never thought of the Thanksgiving turkey as being cute….but this one sure is. By the way, I made your adorable itty bitty bags and posted them. Thanks for a super great pattern.

  41. The fabulous Julie allegedly said:

    Looks like the perfect holiday dinner! Low fat and high in fiber!

  42. The fabulous mARY lOU wEIDMAN allegedly said:

    I believe this is what they mean by a “delightful dinner”.
    Thanks for the smile this Thanksgiving day!

  43. The fabulous Pam allegedly said:
