    I would quilt egg shapes in the border, thats the only suggestion I have. The quilt is adorable, love you colors. It made me giggle.

    If outline/echo quilting, I just stop that line when I come to the border, no matter if it's the first or second line or the tenth. I wouldn't extend the quilting into the borders nor into the sashing.

    If you don't want to do chicken wire, I'd just cross-hatch it. I love your quilt. You can't help but smile with that many funky chickens running loose!

    What a fun quilt! Maybe you could quilt some random chickeny things, an egg, a chick, feather etc. I'd add some detail to the applique, not much maybe on the wings...what ever you choose, have fun with it!

    This is a really happy quilt! Cross-hatching also occurred to me, though the addition of the chicken wire might make it to busy. So, echo quilting with cross hatching in the sashing might work. Great job!

    Thank you all for all your compliments and good ideas! I still have to think about how to quilt but I think I will echo around the chicks. The sashing is only 1" wide so cross hatching might not work?

    You can easily echo quilt...just travel along the ditch to begin again, using a fine thread (50 or 60 weight) so the thread doesn't build up. I am a chicken-in-my-kitchen lover, and also have a chicken wall hanging in my sewing room, so this is WAY CUTE!

    I printed the patterns, now I wish I had made it also. Love these. Straight lines on diagonal for quilting?

    How about echo quilting around each chicken (maybe in a verigated thread) and then go to Leah Day's free motion page and use a different design in each sashing? I am finishing up a small wallhanging of embroidered and appliqued squares from my quilt group friends and did this echo quilt around the designs. It was so much fun. Now I have several designs from Leah Day to use in the sashings and plan to use the same thread color as the fabric so it won't immediately call attention to itself.
