    This link was posted on another thread so I checked it out for chicken fabrics....just type chicken in the search box and you'll get pages of chicken fabrics.

    I was cruising a site called www.fatcatpatterns.com and there are some awfully cute chicken patterns fo print up for free. They are all applique and she doesn't give instructions, but they are pretty simple to do. I can't participate this year cause we'll be packing up for the big move, but some of you might like these patterns.

    When I was collecting fabrics for my chicken quilts I made sure to find some fabrics that read "solid" to use for backgrounds. Chicken wire fabric in tan, light blue or black and white is great. I also found a shirting (I think it may have been by Judie Rothermel who does a lot of CW fabrics) that had little tiny chickens on it.

    I also bought several panels that had chicken blocks on them. They are fun to fussy cut and use in the center of a star block, for example. Smaller ones also make great little filler blocks.

    When you are making blocks, some of your chickens will face the left and others will face right. I try to also have some chickens that are facing the front-like they are looking at you. They are harder to find, but balance the quilt better.

    Just some advice (my two cents worth).....you can all take it or leave it-it won't hurt my feelings!!

    I also ended up with a bunch of fabric that I did not use on the front of my quilt--it made a nice backing all pieced together.

    I hope soon too--I mailed over a week ago, but I know it takes a while internationally.

    i feel your pain, or pleasure, however you want to look at it! Unfortunately, it's the fault of all those creative people out there who keep designing amazing patterns and fabrics! :D

    Awesome advice - thanks so much for posting it Marcia! I love your pictures and I will have to find a shirting fabric with chickens on it, it would be fun to throw in with any quilt just for the whimsy of it! :D

    I ordered the rooster patterns from Florine Johnson Designs and they are so cute and expensive for all 9, but I had a weak moment. Never done applique before, so it will probably be a 10 year project!!!

    Type in Chickens in the search box and you will get about 90 results - not all are specifically chickens/roosters, but most are!
