    I usually buy 1 yd if I don't know what I am going to do with it. With this quilt, I will buy at leat 1/2 yd since I don't have a pattern yet!

    I'm game. A chicken quilt is a prefect thing with living in the keys. Chickens roam the city of Key West. They are protected. One of the things that makes Key West fun. I have wanted to try a chicken quilt every since I saw Marcia's quilt. It is beautiful.
