Quilting with Turkey Red

Turkey Red is a color of thread used for Quilting this scrap quilt. My Grandmother back in the 30's talked about her neighbor had a new stove with Turkey Red handles. She was so envious of this neighbor. It was the first colorfast thread ever made in the USA. I have about half of it quilted. These were orphaned blocks and I added to them for a couch throw. Another project out of the sewing room soon. It is 70X80 so a good sized piece. Wish I had about ten More done in the sewing room. I could walk through it then. LOL I would only start about 12 more then. Chris
