Don't know yet. I am currently a little overwhelmed with everything I committed to and I think I need to finish something before I add more. Tempting though.....

For those of you wondering what on earth a quilt with different size blocks might look like.....here is a link to marcia's chicken quilt. (I sure hope she doesn't mind me showing it off again).

Okay... I am going to be using some animal prints. I've gotten that far in my thought process. Is there any objection to a large block, like 9x15?

I love Chickens.. but shhhhhhh don't tell anyone.:lol: .. and I think I'd like to join the Chicken swap, but first I need to ask a few questions.:?:

:?: What about using homespun fabric? I know some like it, and others, well not so much.. Would that be ok to use? Either for the base fabric or the chicken itself?
:?: Do we need to tell you what chicken we're doing?
:?: Can it be an ME chicken?
:?: Aren't these questions annoying?
:?: Are the chickens to be exactly alike in each block or can they be different as long as the block size is the same?
:?: Can a rooster also be done with the chickens instead of just a chicken? or is this "hens" only swap?
:?: I'm done with the questions I had, aren't you glad? (ooops, sorry that was a question!) :oops: :lol:

I'll let you be the judge on the homespun since I don't know alot about it...I would think that if it is objectionable to some...maybe you should use it as part of the chicken and not part of the base??
:?: Do we need to tell you what chicken we're doing? No...just the size of your blocks
:?: Can it be an ME chicken? What is a ME chicken?
:?: Aren't these questions annoying? Getting more sooo
:?: Are the chickens to be exactly alike in each block or can they be different as long as the block size is the same? well, they should be very close...then you can do another set for a different design
:?: Can a rooster also be done with the chickens instead of just a chicken? or is this "hens" only swap? Roosters are always welcome at my hen parties-(its a chicken swap...not a hen swap)
:?: I'm done with the questions I had, aren't you glad? (ooops, sorry that was a question!) :oops: :lol:Yippee!...actually, ask away if ya' have anymore....so are you signing up????
