I have really enjoyed making this quilt. Talkin Turkey is from Bonnie Hunter's latest book 'String Fling'. I just love scrap quilts and I'm starting to like making string blocks. I've made several of Bonnie's mystery quilts that use strings. The first one was Roll Roll Cotton Boll with neutral strings/pieced sawmill blocks and the second one was Orca Bay with blue strings/Ohio star blocks. Speaking of these two mystery quilts, these two patterns are also in the "String Fling" book. I recommend getting this book if you don't already have it. I'm going to make Jamestown Landing from this book also but not until early next year.
Talking Turkey uses a ton of red strings for both the blocks and the pieced border. Just love how Bonnie uses pieced borders to complete her designs.
Can't wait for the new mystery to be annouced. She said today on her blog that the fabric requirements would be revealed this month and that the mystery will start in November.
Hope to put the binding on within the next couple of weeks so I'll be all ready to launch yet another mystery from Bonnie!
