    Okay I took all your suggestions together and tried something new .... It's a little wonky cause it was just a quick put together, but what do you think? I added a polka dot wing and used black to outline the chicken instead of cream ....

    Don't worry! if I don't go with the zebra for these ones, I have a cute pp chicken I plan to use the zebra for. I am thinking it might be easier to use the polka for the road chickens and then the zebra for my pp ones. I like it with the two tone, but I am not great at applique, so it's not coming out as clean as I would like for you guys ....

    Thanks everyone. I am still not sure what I am going to do with that one, but I made up another one tonight. This one is 6x9. Chicken in a jar!

    oooh can't wait to see the soup ones!! :) I am having so much fun making the blocks!! LOL Once I do the prototype, it's pretty easy to piece the rest as a bunch .... I would like to end up with a nice lap size quilt from this, so hopefully I can get a bunch of these done!! I can't wait to see pics of everyone else's blocks!! :)

    Cheers!
