Home To Roost
Topic: Quilting

I found a cute pattern for a chicken block on Pintrest and used EQ7 to draw it up in a larger size (I used 3-inch strips). I made some other modifications, like removing the upper background strip and then made four blocks using greens for the backs, tans for the chests and rusts for the combs and beaks. The eyes are painted on using acrylics.

 

 



I set these together using sashing and borders of egg print fabric and then used a chicken wire print for the four setting triangles.


I quilted the chickens using stitch-in-the-ditch and then for the outer triangles I quilted from the back by outlining some of the chicken feathers on the backing print.

This quilt finished up at 60 inches.

This will go to our neighbors whose free-range chickens wander the neighborhood. When we go for a walk the chickens fall in line and join us for exercise.

They DO go "Home To Roost".
