    most fun I have had in years ! Found this after google.com.
    found this at site:
    http://angrychicken.typepad.com/angry_chicken/2005/03/aint_just_maple.html
    The chickens are made from a pattern brought to the U.S. by a nationally known and beloved quilter who died a few years ago named Doreen Speckman. She called them Norwegian pin cushions. Her daughter Megan still sells the pattern -- chickenpattern.freewebspace.com

    fun first project from Log Cabin design and wonderful little gifts!! Made several but never kept one of my own ! I have left over material, can't wait to finish my baby quilts and use the left overs

    So worth it. Years ago I bought a quilt book with design. Happy to find again !

    That is so cute!! I saw Shar (Quilting from the Heartland) make one similar to this, but she went thru it so fast - I definitely have to give that pattern a look. Thanks for posting it!

    I'm going to have to try making that little chicken pin cushion...it looks like a square that has been folded across the middle and sewn on the pointy sides. I'll give it a try. Looks like maybe a 10 inch block.

    :?: Has anyone purchased this pattern from Megan lately? I sent a check several weeks ago and haven't heard anything. I sent a follow-up e-mail to the address she has listed at this link and it was returned undeliverable. Wondering if they're no longer available? I really really want this pattern.

    These were one of the free patterns at my quilt retreat in April and they were a HUGE hit! One lady spent most of her time making them and make a very large family of chickens - it was fun to watch (I didn't make them although I wish now that I had!). Great job!!
