    I have a dear friend who collects chickens, too and does not quilt, or even sew. She has been admiring my chicken quilt since the first time she ever saw it--still in pieces on my design wall. So, this year for her birthday I decided to make her a chicken lap quilt.

    Not a very good pic-no one around to hold the quilt for me while I snap a shot....

    Don't look too close--I quilted this one myself and my free motion quilting leaves a LOT to be desired.

    Well--the rest of the story is that her birthday was several weeks ago! I didn't have the binding on it yet--but I gave it to her anyway and then brought it home to bind and sew little eyes on. I did not take a picture of her when she opened it---but she was speechless to begin with and then cried. I think she liked it :D

    You can't help but smile when see one of your chicken quilts. I'm sure your friend will treasure her quilt. So cute!
