Chicken quilt

chicken quilt april 2008

I made my mom another quilt for Mothers Day this year. As usual there are pictures on the camera that haven’t made it onto my computer yet two months later. Luckily she sent me a couple pictures which I have added to my new Picasa completed projects album. While adding pictures to it I said, “Holy crap check it out I’ve made some really pretty quilts!” How did I find the patience to piece together the baby quilt for Oliver? It’s made with – no joke – 18 billion tiny pieces of fabric. It’s inspirational. I am motivated to go buy batting for my current project that keeps moving around the living room, from chair to couch to sewing table: a quilt top that’s pieced and needs a border.

    Great minds think alike! I love that the clean lines really allow the chicken fabric to shine through :-).
