Any suggestions will be most appreciated.

I have a new embroidery collection of redwork chickens that sewed on my embroidery machine. After I made a few samples I decided to put them together in a quilt. I spent many hours searching quilt patterns to find one to put the chicken in the middle. I finally laid the blocks on the floor and the the quilt designed itself. I hope you like chickens as much as I do

Your projects are nicely done, good job.

I saw a gorgeous handbag in the online Quilt Mag printed to the right of the denim bag Vol 4, No 4, GO TO page 22. I've searched the internet, can't find it anywhere. The description on the pages reference the denim backpack and the pink purse, but nothing about the chevron scrappy bag with the "v" top in the upper right corner. Possibly it is made by someone in Australia, but I'm not sure.If anyone knows where or how or something about this, I'd sure appreciate some help!!http://www.onlinequiltmagazine.com/d...td-2013-04.pdf
I had planned on putting the green strip around the whole quilt, then the light colored flower fabric as a final border. What can I do to make this better, any suggestions?
I need suggestions on organizing patterns. Seems I can never find the pattern I want. Will appreciate knowing how others manage this.
