    Funky Chicks

    This is this years BOM from fatcat, I loved making the blocks. Now the top is done and I have absolutely no idea how to quilt it. It will be a wall hanging but SID isn't enough. I thought about echo quilting but I will end up in the borders with some of the blocks. Any ideas?

    They are too fun. I had to look at each one individually and enjoy it.

    I also did a funky chicken BOM and it was so much fun. Keep me posted on how you quilt it as I don't have any ideas other than a meandering stitch.

    The background fabric is chicken wire, I will post a few blocks so you can see. I don't plan on quilting on the applique, just around in in some way. The first picture is the actual colour of the background.

    That is adorable, I did download the patterns but haven't made the blocks yet. No help on how to quilt it other than an echo of each chicken. The chicken wire was a really good idea.
