Second Block


It's 7:00 AM and it's 48 degrees down in my studio in the barn. I've got the pellet stove fired up and as soon as I post this block, I'll head back up to the house for an hour or so until it warms up down here. In the meantime, here you go!

This is Block #11. Hope you like it!

Vonna said...

That is one purdy Tom :) And my heaven's this has only been posted 9 minutes ago (according to my reader) and I'm the 4th commentator? That's popularity!

mwbranch said...

Awesome - just awesome! Just when I think you cannot possibly think up another HRV design better than the last, you do it! I agree with everyone - love the turkey and I bet the colors used in his design are wonderful in person, Marty

Great turkey! Love the corn too.

Nancy said...

A fine turkey indeed! Love the Indian corn too!

Margaret said...

OMG!! I love it! It took my breath away!

SharoninStLouis said...

Love the blocks -- can't wait to see the entire piece and have it in my hot little stitching hands. I didn't see how you could top "Christmas," but this one is going to be great! Now if only you could create a few more hours in the day for stitching.

Tom the Turkey, so nice!! :) I can't wait I can't wait!!

Marianne said...

The fluffy Tom definitely makes me think Autumn! The corn is a pretty touch!

donnatl2004 said...

Ineke said...

Lovely! A big turkey!

Rita said...

Wendy said...

Great Gobbler!! I can't wait to see more :-D

Renee said...

FABULOUS!!!!!!!!! Both Autumn blocks are fantastic! My favorite so far but then I love Autumn!

Catherine said...

Wow! What a stunning Tom! By the number of comments already I'd say you need to get pic #3 ready!

quietgirl255 said...

Cool turkey! I also like the corn. I am so excited. Autumn is my favorite season!

Carolyn said...

Love the turkey and the corn.

This is looking too good to miss.

Kirby said...

I need this NOW! OH. MY. GOD!

Berit said...

I'm less than thrilled about Tom; It's just that he is one big turkey (House-sized if you compare him to block 1, lol!), and I'm not much for turkeys until they're sliced in my sandwich! :D

I love the corn, however, and he is definitely autumnal.

Bring on the Block 3!

Here's hoping your studio becomes warm quickly. Brr!

Nicole said...

What a great turkey!! I love it Kathy! Hope it warms up fast in there for you! :)

Oh I love the blocks that you have been showing so far for Autumn...I love all of your Patterns and I can't wait til I get my hands on this one.

I just dearly love the Turkey one...that is going to be so neat.

Can't wait til I see the other ones.

Are you going to come out with a Winter one too?

Take care & Happy Designing

This is so much fun...anticipating each block as they come. I did it with your most recent publication, too. Can't wait to see more. Autumn is my favorite time.

And thanks for really fast service...I just purchased 3 of your older patterns from your Etsy shop, and they were here in two days.

I love both blocks! I just saw the first one this morning and really liked it...love the turkey too! I live in central PA and am really ready for spring! No sign of that with what they are predicting for this weekend.

*waving* Hi Tom!

Sandye said...

The turkey is cute, but the corn is adorable!

Kristen said...

LOVE!

Sharlotte said...

My LNS has been telling me about this! I'm super excited about it! I can't see well enough to stitch on 40 count, so can you imagine how massive this would be if I stitched it on my regular 28ct. or 32ct.? Obviously if I stitch this, I'll have to only stitch parts of it. I envy those that will get to stitch the while shebang!

corinna said...

Cari said...

Tom is great! I just love this turkey - what a cute little pillow he would make. Next....
