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!
