    Funky Chicks

    This is this years BOM from fatcat, I loved making the blocks. Now the top is done and I have absolutely no idea how to quilt it. It will be a wall hanging but SID isn't enough. I thought about echo quilting but I will end up in the borders with some of the blocks. Any ideas?

    They are too fun. I had to look at each one individually and enjoy it.

    I also did a funky chicken BOM and it was so much fun. Keep me posted on how you quilt it as I don't have any ideas other than a meandering stitch.

    The background fabric is chicken wire, I will post a few blocks so you can see. I don't plan on quilting on the applique, just around in in some way. The first picture is the actual colour of the background.

    That is adorable, I did download the patterns but haven't made the blocks yet. No help on how to quilt it other than an echo of each chicken. The chicken wire was a really good idea.

    Love this! You could SID then stipple around each chicken. Or echo and go into the borders. I think it would be okay.

    Oh my goodness this it cute! I think your echos would still be fine. But you could different background fills in each block.

    ​Adorable quilt top! I would outline quilt the chickens and then maybe a larger chicken wire background using the small chicken wire as a guide. You could see if you could work with 4-5 of the little squares as one?

    Check with your LQS as to what batting they would recommend for a wall hanging. Mine carries this thin poly that will be OK with quilting lines really far apart. Depending on the size of the blocks, you might just be able to get away with SITD around the chickens and sashing.
    Maybe add a bit of additional stitching to outline or accent individual applique pieces within each chicken.

    I love your quilt top! I agree with QuiltnNan that a chicken wire background would be perfect!
