Turkey Tracks Quilt Block and a Thanksgiving Recipe - Part 3

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?
Southern Cornbread Dressing
5 or 6 cups cornbread, crumbled (one 8-inch square pan) 
6 cups soft bread crumbs
1 cup butter                                      
1 cup chopped nutmeats                             
1 cup diced celery                                                                       
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped green pepper
2 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1½ teaspoons poultry seasoning
2 beaten eggs or more if needed
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!
