I made a couple of chicken quilts earlier this year with my online bee group. They all sent me blocks and I assembled them together in to quilts to be donated. My friend, Peg, saw those quilts and offered to purchase one from me. I didn’t feel like I could sell those to her as the blocks had been given to me, but I offered to make her a new chicken quilt.
You can read about those original quilts here. That post also has links to instructions for making the chicken block, in case you are interested.
This is the next generation of the Chicken Quilt. It is similar in style and fabrics to the first two:
I tried out a new pantograph called Turbulence, which is all swirly. I like it a lot. I also used a black and white striped binding again which I think is perfect for this quilt.
here is the back:
I found this when we were at Missouri Star Quilt Company at the end of October and I think it is perfect. Peg said it looked like chicken feed!
I think it all came together really well.
Yet again, Maggie was not in the mood for taking photos, but she still looks really pretty!
Peg’s Chicken Final Details:
- Finished 55″x65″
- Warm & Natural Batting
- So Fine#50, color #503 (light grey) on both the top and bobbin

- This was a finish on my Q4’19 FAL list so I will linking up at the end of the quarter.
