Cindy's Thanksgiving Quilt Block Tutorial

Half the month of May has come and gone. I have so many excuses as to why this didn't go out on time, but I think the biggest excuse is that I am a procrastinator. I had all the stuff ready to cut out and the instructions ready to send by the middle of April, but did I get it all together in time to send it out the beginning of May? NooooOOOooOoooOo! Better late than never, though. Here it is, hope you enjoy!

I was thinking it'd be fun to have something for Thanksgiving to display in the living room. I originally wanted the green squares to be an eggshell blue - you know, edgier or something. But I couldn't find the right blue and the one I did buy just didn't sit right. So I found a remnant of something I had used for a Christmas quilt and it was enough to cut out for all y'all. So I'm sending you the green and the ivory pieces. If you could add your own dark brown, pumpkin color and light pumpkin color, that would be so great! If you're confused about what color pumpkin is, err on the side of rust.

I got these instructions from The Happy Zombie. I changed the colors on her instructions so it'd be easier for you guys to figure out what was what. I'll be sending you a paper file of this as well.

Happy quilting!


  1. That's an eye-catching block. I can't wait to get started!
