Thanksgiving Turkey Table Runner
For this lovely table runner, we used designs from the Wild Turkey Set for the large hoop (5" x 7").

The finished size of the table runner is about 16" x 54", but you can easily adjust it to the size you need. It's super easy both to piece and to embroider.

Quilting and Finishing:
Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted in a free motion style all over the table runner.
After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.
Finish the raw edges with the binding.
