funky chickens finish

Whew!  I finished another project.  I didn't make this quilt, it was a group quilt made by members at a retreat a few years ago.
The blocks were lost for a couple of years and everyone was looking for them, until they were finally found in the janitor's closet at the church we meet at.
So I was the lucky lady who volunteered to quilt it.  And it seemed like I should do it proud, so that was my goal.  Enjoy looking at close-ups.

If you want to own this quilt, come to our auction in September and bid on it!  There will be many other lovelies there also (almost 100 quilts).

I thought some funky feathers would outline these funky chickens well.  Each chicken block has chicken wire, a nest (with various fill designs) and a feather motif.

Hope you enjoy and I will post a photo of the whole quilt when I get the binding on.

Have a great day, Karen


  1. Love your quilt. Many years ago, at least 10 years, a group made this quilt also for a fund raiser and sold raffle tickets. I bought several but didn't win the quilt. So, I made my own. I still love it as much as I did the day I made it. It is a special quilt that the grandchildren sleep under when they come to visit. Hopefully your quilt will be so loved. Blessings, Gretchen

  2. So there was a hen party in the janitor's closet, eh? :-) They are really cute. Hope it goes to a loving home!
