Happy Thanksgiving

I'm getting ready for our Thanksgiving guests, we'll be having around 20. This little turkey and quilted mat will be part of our centerpiece, my vintage linen table cloth will be underneath and the candles will be glowing.

This mat was our leaf pounded fabric we made while on our color tour. I trimmed up the sides, added batik boarders, layered it and machine quilted in the leaf veins, a few winter green berries and a acorn. The grand kids signed the back and wrote cute messages to their mom and surprised her with it for her birthday.
I hope you have a wonderful Thansgiving and eat to much!
