    Okay this may sound unusual, but since you are all chicken lovers--has any one seen a chicken on a bike either in fabric or pattern? Thanks.

    C, I love your blocks, they are so funky!

    OK, I haven't seen chickens on a bike but that would be great! A wobbly bike would be fun too.

    These blocks are so much fun. I have some ideas in my mind. I really would like to participate, but I'm in the middle of renovating a 140-year old farm house & moving ASAP. I need the sewing time to keep me sane, so that might have to be my excuse. A funky chicken wall hanging would be so cute in the new house!

    Cool Oh where and oh where have my chickies gone?

    Some time ago I drew out and gathered the chicken blocks I wanted to make for this swap. I have been looking for two days and I can not find them any where. They are doing a good job hiding but I am not so happy about this game. Maybe one more day and then I will start over.

    So Anna, do we have some pictures for further inspiration? How is everyone else doing on their blocks. I have the one set done, trying to decide on which other ones to make. So many to choose from.

    I feel tempted to post but I first want them sewn down before they fly away. LOL They are ironned on right now.I have a rather big pile I need to applique as I am doing the farm block swap appliques at the same time. They look happy and colorful. Is that enough to wet your quilty appetite?

    Is that coffee fu fu kind because I drink no less. If anything, I can bring the coffee and creamer. The quilt needs to be a heavy one because I do tend to get cold at night and these little muscles don't do well in the cold.

    I can borrow another friends espresso machine and we can really be ready for the day. hey quilting at Mariposa's everyone. She can swap our blocks right then and we can sew our quilts that day. Great plan, wonder if her DH will have a problem with that?

    Which we will have the crock pot going with our dinner, we will have already baked our goodies, and purchased our chocolate. Yep, sounds like a party to me. Who all is coming besides me? I have to work that around Jaba, she is having me over at her house as well.
