Happy Turkey Day

Well it's been a busy turkey weekend, we've had 2 delicious dinners and the weekend isn't over yet. Tonight I think we'll have to take a break from all the turkey. It's been a gorgeous sunny weekend with a little nip in the air....I love it. I finally finished this quilt, the blocks have been sitting around for a while. I didn't use a pattern so I didn't have a plan for how big it was going to be, the size turned out perfect for a lap quilt.
EDIT: I found the tutorial for this block, you can find it here under Nov 08, have fun making your own version.
I used mostly my stash for this one....woohoo that feels good.
Happy Turkey Day to all you Canadians. Have a wonderful weekend with friends and family.
