    Oh dear, what memories! My first kitchen curtains were chicken scratch ORANGE gingham. I guess that tells what era I'm from. LOL. I love the pin cushion--super job!

    Wow! Memories, I used to do that every so long ago on my daughter's dresses and I had forgotten all about it. Thank you for posting. I don't recall it being named chicken-scratch but who cares it is lovely work.

    I made a chicken scratch quilt (king size) 13 blocks chicken scratch (star) and set with 12 plain blocks. quilted the star in the plain blocks. Did this about 20 years ago while wintering on Texas. Still using in Texas

    Yes indeed that is "chicken scratch". My grandmother was an avid creator of aprons (that she sold at farmers markets) with these designs. I still have a few of them even though they would never fit my waist now (lol).

    Lovely, too pretty to use for pins. I made book marks using the Chicken Scratch pattern. time consuming but pretty.

    This is really a treasure! I know what you mean about receiving something special. I was participating in a block swap and it was such a blessing, I would receive little gifts like stationary, extra blocks, neat little pins and colorful pens, and even samples of neat little tasty treats sometimes.

    My aunt made me three sets of pillow cases with chicken scratch on the border when I got married in 1954. She made some for my daughter and my mother too. I love them. Still look good.
