    I have a dear friend who collects chickens, too and does not quilt, or even sew. She has been admiring my chicken quilt since the first time she ever saw it--still in pieces on my design wall. So, this year for her birthday I decided to make her a chicken lap quilt.

    Not a very good pic-no one around to hold the quilt for me while I snap a shot....

    Don't look too close--I quilted this one myself and my free motion quilting leaves a LOT to be desired.

    I fussy cut some of my fabric and used 3 X 6" strips for a pieced border.
