    Here are a few of my unfinished projects. The last few years seem to have been full of alot of baby quilts and I should have taken photo's of them but I didn't. I'll try to post some more later.

    This one was fun, I got to experiement with dying my whites with different strengths of tea and coffee.


    BOM quilt


    The pineapple was paper pieced. I love the precision of paper piecing.


    A work in progress, this is also a BOM and I'm sure alot of you have seen this one, it's been around for awhile. I love picking out the fabrics and putting the chickens together.

    Thanks Celeste and everyone else who responded to my posting. Is Kathy a chicken freak too? I tell ya what, I have done so many chicken related quilts/wallhangings that I have a barnyard full! lol. I have one more where the chicken is dancing around in high heels and after I do that one, I'm gonna have to lay (Ooops! no pun intended!) off of them for awhile.

    Wow! I impressed with how different they all are--nothing scares you! :D I like the top one the best--country looking. The applique really adds to it--makes it a one-of-a-kind!

    Lisa, Great job!! The first one with the chickens is adorable!! It looks like the pineapple one is perfectly done! Is that paperpieced? Great job on all of them! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for all the comments girls! :D I was abit suprised to see my posting re-surface. The first one, the courthouse steps was a true scrap quilt, I didn't buy anything new for it so it was fun and challenging. The BOM quilt came with fabric already picked out. The pineapple quilt is paperpeiced and I was trying to find colors to make it look like the old ones do, I love the old 2 color quilts. The rooster/chicken quilt has been my favorite, I love picking out all of the fabric for it, I have 2 different backgrounds and I think I'm going to go with the lighter of the two. Thanks again for all your comments! :mrgreen:
