Today I am so excited to share a quilt tutorial!  The Turkey Tracks Lap Quilt.

The fabric used is the Primitive Gatherings by Lisa Bonjean for Moda.  I am in love with her fabric.  The tones are so wonderful!  I seriously couldn’t stop ‘petting’ the fabric.   This line is the dark and dirty one. She is truly a traditional and civil war color style of girl.

I met her first at a sewing class {thank you mother who was out of town and I took her place}.  I loved every minute of it.  More recently I met up with her at Fall Quilt Market.  Her booth was filled with beautiful fabric, wool, and quilts.  I loved every single one and was so glad I stopped to say hi again and pet, I mean touch, I mean look at her fabric.  She is one talented gal.

Finished size: 56″ X 56″

Materials Needed:

1/2 yard- dark fabric
2 yard- background
1 1/4 yard- green
3/4 yard- red
various fabric scraps for the piano keys border- 5″ X 2 1/2″ –92


This quilt was originaly a mystery quilt, and larger….but for this tutorial I took it down to a lap size.  Perfect for beginner quilters.

There are 4 colors/fabrics used for the quilt- a background, a medium and a dark.  In this version I tossed in a red to give it a little bit of pop.  If you aren’t into limiting your color palet, go for your scraps.  This would make a fantastic scrap quilt.

The border is simple piano keys with corner blocks.  Simple enough- bordering a 9 block center.


It’s been awhile since I have sewn a quilt.  I have been keeping with smaller projects, but sewing this us was so much fun! I hadn’t realized that I was missing it.
