Well, this might be a little late but here are some fun Thanksgiving projects. You will find a whole pile of free patterns collected for you here at Quilt Inspiration. Grab a hot beverage and check them all out.
This idea I found from some creative folks in Alaska. It looks like a lot of fun. It doesn't have any instructions, but the concept is simple. So while your family is gathered around this Thanksgiving, why not get out your fusible web paper and trace your families hands and make something like this. A project you can all take part in and bring out for many years to come..it would be an awesome family keepsake.
