I found the pattern for this 12" Turkey Track quilt block in Eleanor Burns' book Egg Money Quilts. This pattern goes by many different names - Wandering Foot, Endless Chain, Jacob's Tears, Kansas Troubles, Slave Chain, Texas Tears, and Job's Tears. This block has a 2" green print sashing all around it.
|Isn't that an amazing turkey in my backyard?|

1 cup diced celery
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped green pepper
2 teaspoons salt

1½ cups broth from giblets
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, mix together crumbled cornbread and soft bread crumbs.
3. Heat butter in a heavy skillet; add nutmeats, celery, onion, and green pepper and sauté slowly for 15 minutes. Stir in seasonings. Add to cornbread and bread crumbs, mixing thoroughly.
4. Add well-beaten eggs; sprinkle cooled broth over surface, stirring lightly until dressing is of desired moistness.
5. Place in a greased 9” x 13” pan, cover with foil, and bake for an hour.
This is a moist, Southern corn bread dressing from my southern mother-in-law!
