Okay… it’s going to be hard to part with this one. But I’ve done it, I’ve put it in the shop.
Yes, in addition to the Hidden Heart Baby quilt, I also quilted my Cluckers this weekend.
Aren’t they just awesome? I’ve said it before, but next to cats, chickens are probably my favourite animal. I know it sounds kind of odd, but if you’ve ever kept chickens, you’ll understand.
We had them when I was a kid. When we moved to the country when I was 12, we had to give them up (they went to live with my grandparents who had their own coop). I still long to have a place I can keep chickens again. For now, I’ll make do with sewing them.
These ladies were so much fun to put together, made more so by the themed fabric I had to work with.
And I’m so glad I was able to get the chicken-wire print for the background and backing.
I still have a good chunk of it left, as well as some other chicken fabrics in the stash. This won’t be my last chicken quilt!
In the mean time, I hope this one lands in a good home!

I can honestly say I think this is one of my favorites. Love those sweet hens sitting on their nests. Great job Val!
Blessings and hugs,
It would be hard to part with it!
Love the chicken wire fabric.
That is such an adorable quilt! The fabrics are just wonderful and the binding fabric you selected adds just the right accent. Love the quilting also.
buck-buck-buGACK! (Which I am assured is chicken for “Fantastic!”)
I predict it will go very fast. Because, why do those chickens cross the road? To get through the mail to a new home
This is a beauty!!!! I love chickens, too, and think about getting some again. I hope you can manage to have them at your new house!
