    Well, I just finished my first set of 3 inch blocks. Thats right, itty bitty tiny three inch blocks. I made an egg! Hand sewn needle turn applique. You girls better know how much I adore you, since I think I have now gone blind from making itty bitty stitches. I worked on them all day yesterday and this morning when I couldn't sleep. lol.

    I just thought in a large quilt, we needed at least one egg! And a tiny block to off set the larger ones.

    I just hope no one will feel "jipped" that they get a tiny one. Patty, let me know if these it will be ok, especially since an egg isn't a "funky chicken."

    Thanks!!

    Okay, I will make the chicken block. I don't know what size yet, but I am thinking either a 6 x 6 or a 9 x 9. I am also thinking about doing another set as well. I really want to make a live chicken. I am thinking about a cracking egg with legs...

    Ok, I'm in! I'll do one set.. and I think I need to make it 9x9 just to make sure that I have enough space to get them centered right. Since they're in a 5x7 hoop, I think 6x6 would leave either a headless or footless chicken....

    I'm hand sewing some more blocks. I'm not sure of the final size, only the colors I'm using! I am making some hens this time. I'll be making 2 sets. (So, Patty, put me down for 3 sets total.Thank you!)

    Great BRT! I've put you down. You must be a machine to crank out all these blocks!

    I am forming my block in my head... I have a question... how do people in the swap feel about having 3D parts? For example, if my chickens' wings were "flappable". Does this mess you all up? Won't hurt my feelings if it does, I'll just move on to the next (15 or 16) ideas I have brewing. I'd rather know now, when I am still fomenting the plan!

    Well, I just sewed 12 chickens with "flap-able" wings, so I certainty don't mind! lol! Great minds must think alike!
