    Prairie Chicken Scrap quilt

    I have a selection of what I call "Posh" bedding, I cannot sleep comfortably between sheets because when I get night sweats which I do quite often due to pain control, the sheets stick to me so when I try to roll over I nigh on strangle myself So I have make a selection of quilts to use instead of sheets, using the sheets for backings.

    Here is one I made a while back out of scraps, what was great about it is the 4 blocks that make the Chickens measure 36" square so I did the QAYG method and made a nice size double. I really must make another one as it a lovely pattern and useful for using up scraps. I am lucky to have downloaded the Free Prairie Chicken pattern when I did as I see that the Prairie Queen Pattern Company doesn't seem to exist any longer, shame.

    Sorry it's not the best of pics but it has just been washed and is hanging up to dry.

    Love your quilt! I looked up the pattern and although it is no longer available, I did find a photo of the whole quilt so I could see the design. This is going on my to do list as I think it would be a great way to use up my scraps also. Thanks for showing us your quilt!

    Silly me, I should have asked how you used the QAYG method to make your blocks. Can you explain your process?
