    Is that done all by hand? I think that is a cute idea

    i love the chicken scratch stitch. can you explain how to do the back part of the stitch - i can't see the picture well enough to see how you keep it neat. i'm assuming the thread between stitches is in the middle of the sandwich but don't see how the back part is made.

    How very cute!! My grandma used to call that "chicken scratch" and she used it a lot on her "utility" quilts...

    thanks for the kind words.
    if you do a search for "turkey tracks" there are really good directions from saravincent. it is very simple but she explains much better than i could.

    On google I found this referenced:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/1753.page

    I thought the hand written instructions a little hard to read but still understood them.

    That looks great! It does look old fashioned--I'll have to learn to do that--someday.
