    That actually doesn't sound intimidating at all! In fact, completely do-able...but, you're saying the technique itself takes a bit of time to master?? (thanks for the info)

    It's not so much to master the technique but it is time-consuming cutting all of the little pieces for the feathers. Then I had to pick each one up with tweezers, set several of them in place and then iron them on.

    There are lots of snippet projects on the web - just google snippet quilting - but I think the chicken idea is so much fun.

    Very pretty indeed! I love the colours and how the border and the pot pick up the shades of purple.
