    Here is my first funky chicken. The pattern is called Pollo Loco. Its a Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. pattern. Found it in one of my LQS's and the friend I was with, kept saying she just loved them. I picked up the pattern, and this one is for her.
    Her kitchen has sunflowers on the curtains - yellow and green. But she's a huge purple fanatic - she just loves anything purple. I had a purple FQ that has yellow dots in it - perfect!

    This is the first time that I've every done the half square triangles (had to figure it out from another pattern I have), and the first time really quilting on my machine. I can't drop the feed dogs on my machine so its more of a challenge. I think I didn't do half badly.

    This is also only my 3rd quilting project. Not half bad.

    The yarn is yarn my friend (who the chicken is for) gave me. She's a knitter.

    So here it is, my first funky chicken.

    I sewed so much yesterday, I have a really stiff neck today! No sewing today - neck hurts too much. :( I have lots of cleaning to do.........sew, guess I'll get on with that.

    Thanks for the comments ! Except for the stiff neck....it was fun. The next one will go much faster because I won't have to figure everything out.

    Such a cut critter!! I now your friend will smile when she sees him! Great job on making him! He is a piece of yourself to give to a friend. That is my definition of quilting!

    That wasn't what I envisioned when you said 'Funky Chicken'...that is way out and toooo cool, Martha, you didn't skimp on that one being really 'funky and did a great job. If you need any more yarn, I have a stash of that, also. Jinnie

    Thanks Jinnie! LOL. It was fun. I am going to make another - but I think I might try rick rack for the top and tail - I dunno. I could have matched up the yarn better - but it gives it character! LOL

    Hey, it was great meeting you in person and having lunch today. I can hardly wait to get together again! :)

    Hey Chicky, it was great meeting you, too. BTW, I have a rick rack stash too, in addition to the yarn and fabric. Probably have a stash of everything, since I've been collecting for over 40 yrs and never throw "anything" away! Just ask DH & DD.:-)
