Chickens II quilt

Chicken Quilt II Nov 2009

I made a quick fall quilt for my mom’s birthday using more chicken fabric.  It’s 38″ x 38″, which is lap quilt size or good for the dogs on the couch.  The whole thing took under five hours, and I got to listen to a Sharks game for a lot of it.  It’s the first time I’ve done not stitch-in-the-ditch quilting, which clearly can use some work if I’m going to attempt straight lines.

    Actually I was marveling at how straight those lines are, I like them on a simpler quilt like this. Five hours tho (and a Sharks game sewn in to boot), wow- you’ve got it down. It is very jolly with the yellows, and then the dark squares have that quilted effect too. Anyhow, I love it. Don’t think the dogs deserve it,we’ll see. Great gift, thanks :-))))
