    Here's my latest One Block Wonder quilted. I called it 'Roules ma poule! - this is a French expression that literally means 'Roll my chicken!' - we would probably say 'Go Girl!' :mrgreen:

    Love those funky chickens Kathryn- brilliant name! You know how chickens all cluck away at each other - the hex's make them seem to be doing just that...

    Great choice of fabric. Never would have thought of it! From close before cut: definete chicken wonder. Cut from a distance: an explosion of color, Cut up close: like being in a fun house with a bunch of chickens! Very striking.

    How neat! From a distance, you see a beautiful OBW quilt with gorgeous colors. Up close, the chickens appear! Cool!

    OH, MY, ROLL MY CHICKEN is right!! I love it!! I could spend a lot of time, just looking and seeing how many different ones I could pick out. It is so unusual from the others you have done!!
    Gong to learn this, but made a promise I would get caught up some first :roll: It is so hard for me to be a "big girl" and stick to it. :lol: :lol:

    OMG!!! What a striking quilt. My dear departed MIL would have loved to have this quilt, she collected anything and everything to do with chickens and hens!!! The quilt when finished is like a kaleiscope. Beautiful work!!!

    Oh ho! I love it! I have to ask if any of them got away when you cut the heads off? It sure is beautiful, I can hear the cluck, cluck, clucking from here!
