    Rooster CrossStitch Quilt Finished

    The Rooster Quilt is finally finished!! Since my daughter had spent two years cross stitching these chickens I really wanted it to all work. I do believe that everything that could go wrong did go wrong. There were several very tense moments. Choosing what to quilt where had me stumped for sometime. I thank you all for your suggestions. I tried different things on samples and finally went with what you will see. The pieces that had chicken wire printed on them were solved when a friend suggested the simple, but effective grid lines that would not conflict with the chicken wire pattern. She also gave me the idea of having half going one direction, and the other half just the opposite. My thanks to her. I finally decided to keep the quilting on the aida cloth as simple as possible so that the chickens would be the focus. It wasn't really planned, but the "rays" kind of look like sunshine rays behind them. I just wanted something that would tamp the aida cloth down a bit. The outside border has "hooked feathers" that I found in a book by Sally Terry. Love that book!! All in all, I'm pleased and SO GLAD IT'S FINISHED!!

    Your quilt is stunning! Everything about it is fabulous. What awesome work and the colors are perfection. I am so impressed with your work and am so, so glad you shared it. I have not done cross stitch for a few years, but would love to do a quilt like yours with perhaps flowers instead of roosters. But, I certainly do love the roosters. We want to see more of your work for sure.

    Thanks so much. I think I have more trouble posting than anything.
    Still can't figure out how to get a space between pictures.

    Wow! Beautiful job of quilting, cross stitch, and fabric selection. I hope you realize how perfect it all looks, in spite of all your troubles and what went wrong. Again just WOW!
