It was a little out of my box but lots of fun to make.
    That is soooo cute!!

    I picked it up either at a Sew Expo or a quilt show. The back says www.quarterinchpublishing.com. It's from 1/4 inch Designs & Publishing in Lake Elsinore. Published 1998 & reprinted in 2001.

    Everyone made something different. There were many chicken quilts and only one other I had recognized from a pattern. We our photographer shares the rest of the photos I'll try to put them on the board for you to see. I'm glad you all like it. Thanks.

    see my reply to Evelynquilts. It was not hard at all. I could have appliqued it but since it was a wall hanging I fused the pieces using the lightest weight double sided fuse. Then I machine buttonhole stitched around all the parts. I am not a hand sewer so this process was easiest for me. The most difficult was adding the tiny eyes which are sew on. I needed to sew through many layers of fused parts to push my needle through. The borders were left over pieces from a guild Opportunity Quilt I designed a few years ago. They were paper pieced on to a roll of tissue paper. Since they were left-over parts and the colors went well I figured why not use them.

    My thoughts exactly. Heading towards Portland & Seattle in July on a road trip to visit my sons. First stop - Fabric Depot. I love that place and will go through that $300 in the blink of an eye.
