Little Gobbler Quilt Block

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to bring out this little guy - new canvas #1059.

He is a smaller version of our #1056 turkey and would be suitable for an advanced beginner or imtermediate class.  Many of the stitches are the same ones used on the large gobbler quilt, so this should be easy, quick and fun to stitch.

I started with the head (all basketweave) and body, which is the same Chotti's Plaid used on #1056.  The eyes are Smyrna Cross stitches.

The first tail feather on the right will be Stardust Variation in three colors.  The background is Woven Stitch, and I've started it right above this feather.    I'll be stitching the rest of the feathers before finishing the face, which will be slightly different than our other turkey.
