    Love this! You could SID then stipple around each chicken. Or echo and go into the borders. I think it would be okay.

    Oh my goodness this it cute! I think your echos would still be fine. But you could different background fills in each block.

    ​Adorable quilt top! I would outline quilt the chickens and then maybe a larger chicken wire background using the small chicken wire as a guide. You could see if you could work with 4-5 of the little squares as one?

    Check with your LQS as to what batting they would recommend for a wall hanging. Mine carries this thin poly that will be OK with quilting lines really far apart. Depending on the size of the blocks, you might just be able to get away with SITD around the chickens and sashing.
    Maybe add a bit of additional stitching to outline or accent individual applique pieces within each chicken.

    I love your quilt top! I agree with QuiltnNan that a chicken wire background would be perfect!
