Here Chick , Chick!

Good afternoon, sweet peeps!  It is all about chickens today! 🐔

That means  it is time to pull out my chicken mug!  No coffee in it. I like my sweet iced tea. 😀
Many of ya'll have been with me for awhile on my journey with my chicken quilt.  From the piecing, to the applique ... 

all the way to the quilting. 

Well guess what? I am so excited to announce that  it is complete!!!!

 I am doing a chicken dance right now!🐔🐔🐥🐥💃💃

I had to take it out to the farm for some photos. 

 Proudly displayed on the corncrib which is filled with hay bales. 

Then I hung it with my Beehive quilt on the fence. 

I am over the moon!!!

 I know where it is going to be displayed in the house, but it will have to wait for next year because Fall quilts are going up now. 🍂🎃

I shared the applique pattern and a little more information about this quilt in a previous post. Click here to get the applique pattern.  

Well now to my 2nd chicken quilt.

Here are nine little chickens with a bunch of nine patches which may be used in the finished quilt. 

 I am working on Little Hens for the Rainbow Scraps Challenge with Angela at So Scrappy. I am appliqueing them on 6 1/2" unfinished  background fabric.

 An orange chicken has joined the brood. 

    If you are interested in the Little Hen's applique pattern, just check out the pdf below.

  A few orange and one teal nine patches were also completed today. They will be added to the RSC quilt. 

With one chicken quilt complete and  one well on its way , I think it is in order to start thinking of another. What do you think? lol. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and seeing what is coming out of my Quilt Nest. It may be slow going ,but I am trying to be productive. Have a fantabulous weekend, my dears, and as always...
Happy quilting, ya'll
I am joining these lovely ladies' link parties. I hope you check them out; they always have so many wonderful projects going on and provide the opportunity for other needleworkers to meet.
