Here it is. This is the block I've been working on. If you are a follower of Bonnie Hunter and Quiltville, you had probably already figured out that it is her "Talkin' Turkey" block. It was featured in the Summer 2012 issue of 100 Blocks (Volume 5), by Quiltmaker. As I've said before (apologies to JeanneKaye and Shelley D and anyone else who's passionate about red) I am not a red lover. Or should I say was not ... I'm really enjoying working with the reds ..perhaps I'll be a "convert". Or maybe this will "get it out of my system". Who knows? It doesn't really matter, I'm enjoying the process and that's what matters!
This is the completed block, it will finish at 12". As you can see it has changed it's looks now that the last "component" is added. The flying geese units, with light squares and rectangles to complete the sections, lightens it up and gives it the turkey tracks "look".
The blocks will be set together with sashing. At this point I am planning on a lap size (12 blocks), but who knows? It may grow.... Stay tuned...

Red is the highest arc of the rainbow.
Red is the first color you lose sight of at twilight.
Bees can't see the color red, but they can see all other bright colors.
Red flowers are usually pollinated by birds, butterflies, bats, and
wind, rather than bees.
