    Hey, Guys! I've picked out my pattern and am gathering the fabrics. I'm thinking I'll do 2- 3x3 sets and 2(hopefully) 9x12 sets. Just putting sashing on current project and then I can begin in earnest. Time to turn the chickens out here on the farm! Happy quilting!

Any other suggestions? I've decided that machine applique isn't my favorite quilty thing to do, but I am getting lots of practice here. I don't want to send anything out that I wouldn't be happy keeping myself. So please let me know what you'd like to see best for him. Thanks!

    Chicken on left is fused, but not appliqued yet. Chicken on right is done, but in question.
    These are so cute! The leg joints add sew much. These clucks make me smile when I look at them! Good Job...hope mine are acceptable to you all.

    Sandpat do you need to know what blocks we intend to make by today? I have a few ideas floating around in my head so I'm not sure what my final numbers are yet, but I can figure it out if you need to know!

    Thanks!
    Rachel

    Love the new chick!!!

    Chigger...I got ya' down, don't worry...

    And...no...I don't have to know about your blocks patterns or sizes..we just put that up to make anyone doing pre planning for their quilts to be able to see kinda what was out there..also so that we wouldn't ALL make the same sizes...so send what you want to send...it will all work out just great!

    Sign up deadline in today...but mailing is not until APRIL 1
