    500 snippets I am impressed and that is one great looking chicken! :) The mother and baby chicken block is so sweet. Love these blocks and looking forward to seeing your PP chicken.

    I ironed strips of Heat and Bond lite to the top part of a narrow strip of fabric. That was the top part of the "feather" adheres but the bottom end is free from the fabric.

    I estimate there are about 500 little pieces of fabric - the block measures about 9 in. X 9 in..
    Very nice….Question….When you wash the quilt will the feathers fray like with a rag quilt?

    The "snippets" must have been just a whole lot of fun. The results are darling.

    I went online and did a search for quilted chickens and used some of the pictures that I found. Then I adapted the picture to fit the technique that I was going to use. The hardest part for me was to figure out how to adapt the pattern from the picture. Once I had my head around the process, the rest was easy.

    This is really tooo cool. I made some snippets years ago with my granddaughter who is now 13 years old, she was 5 yrs old back then. We made Christmas tree's and wreaths and every year we still hang them up on our walls and remember the fun we had making them. She loved that I let her use scissors to cut little tiny pieces and of course she was with my group and thought she was just the queen bee cause she was playing with the big girls. Oh such memories your chicken brought to me. gonna have to make snippets again soon. Oh yea and I loved the other pattern too.
