    My inspiration to start quilting

    Last December, I walked in to a few quilt shops, debating if I wanted to start quilting... and then I found these CHICKENS... Chickens with PANTS no less! And you all know the story after that!

    I have this same panel of Roosters and I made a wall hanging for my step-daughter for Christmas and finished it in October. Her whole kitchen is done in Roosters and red, white, and black. I can't do anything else or want to at this point because we just found out last week that my husband has brain cancer and I am just out of my mind trying to deal with it all. Please pray.

    Thank you for posting this picture. The chickens are adorable, but it's how you set them that made that light bulb go off in my head! I have just a few novelty rectangles left over from another project and I can set them this way and make a great kid's quilt. Thank you SO much!! I hope mine turns out as good as yours ...

    Thank you, ladies... It was my first quilt and still makes me giggle every time I see it. Hoping I'll finish the back and get it quilted soon though. :-)

    Brenda-

    I found this panel at Family Theads in San Juan Bautista. It's called French Hens by Timeless Treasures.
