    Oh, Miss Melissa, you done good, girl!!!! I love your arrangement and the filler strips are great. I am having a hard time deciding which block I like the best. The "fresh eggs" on the egg fabric is too cute. But the rooster in the upper right corner greeting the morning sun is wonderful, too. I just love 'em all!!! Great job.

    I am on the fence about the brick border too---not sure if I am going to like it. I would have to lay some of it out and "audition" it. Keep me posted what you decide to do--remember I have more chicky fabric if you need it.

    Oh how cute! I love roosters and chickens too.

    I saw the chicken wire fabric at hancock fabrics. As a matter of fact I used it along with some dancing chicken fabric to make towels and potholders for my next door neighbor and my best friend. They both have chickens in thier kitchens. It is black with white wire all across it.

    Thanks everyone!!!!
    I do like the chicken wire idea, there are probably 10 different fabrics with chicken wire in the quilt but of course I only have bits of them left. I was hoping to not have to buy more fabric fort his. but thats probably what I will end up doing because I think the bricks would just be too much!!! Sure would have been nice to use up those little pieces though!!!! :D i will keep studying on it see if I can come up with any other ideas!

    What about large pieces of chicken wire with small bricks of scrap fabrics in between?

    Or a wide chicken wire border with a skinny brick border.

    So many choices to make! lol

    Awww.... the chicken quilts! Inspired by Marcia's no doubt! Sindy Rodenmayer of Fat Cat is one talented chick isn't she!? I used some of her patterns in my chicken quilt. http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/11218.page

    The chicken quilt is a lot of fun to do! And yours is just beautiful! Welcome to the chicken club!

    That is the cutest chicken quilt!!! I love it. My favorite is the rooster at the bottom with the long tail!!! Not sure what to do with the borders, but I am with you on using up the fabrics you already have, somehow.
