    How adorable! I would personally just outline the chicks...and stitch in the ditch the squares.

    I would outline the chickens & stitch in the ditch & then I would start at the chicken & do a few very random arc lines resembling a loose feather to anchor the background.

    You can echo quilt it and stop at your borders. That should give it enough motion to be fun

    Love your top and the chicken wire background...love all the colors in the blocks. Its a sure thing to bring a smile on the face of the beholder!! Our pullet ladies sing to my dh as he feds them and collects the eggs from the hen house. Good luck on quilting it, no ideas there as I do not machine quilt....the quilts. I pay someone else to do that!!

    I just can't explain enough how much I love this quilt. First the chickens are awesome and then the colors you used are awesome too. Wow wow wow! So much fun.
    peace

    EDIT: As far as quilting it, I like the outline and wire effect. If you did echoing, what would it hurt if some of it went into the borders?

    How about some echoing and just some patches of chicken wire so it only has a hint of it and the birds can still look like free range chickens!

    My first thought was cross-hatching, but chicken wire also works!

    I am in the same boat with this quilt. I loved working on it - I used every possible bright/lound piece of fabric I could find, it just made me smile every time I picked it up but now have to figure out how to quilt it. Will post pics when done.

    So, quilt into the background if you need to, it's a funky quilt isn't it?? Looks like a lot of fun to me. I love it.

    I downloaded the designs too but haven't started it. Love the colors you chose and the chicken wire background. Would love to see it after you quilt it as I have no ideas at all to offer. It's a lovely fun quilt.

    Those are just adorable. I am not a chicken lover, but those have so much personality and are adorable.

    Too cute, Anael....I did a chicken quilt a couple years ago and had it quilted(I just could not handle it myself). The longarmer did echo around each chicken so that each chick "popped". Then she did large chicken wire motif in the sashing and some very large peaks and valleys in the border separating strip and waves in the border. Since the emphasis was on the chickens, echoing, I thought, was perfect.....

    What a fantastic funky chicken quilt, if my dear sister were still with is, I'd be tempted to make it for her, although I did make her a great chicken quilt with a pattern from Shar Jorgensen and her youngest daughter now has it in her protective custody.
