  1. Thank you for the inspiration, hubby and I talked it over and I just set the big frame up in the living room [​IMG] So now I can work on getting calluses on my fingertips again [​IMG] and working on my stitch size!!! Thanks Again!

    Beautiful! One of my goals is to learn to quilt. Someday... Right now my little ones just keep me too busy!

  4. Thanks!! It has been a few years since I worked on this, so its a new adventure! Sure can relate to sewing my finger to the quilt...lol. Hope to finish this this year and give it to my daughter and husband for their new house. When my kids were little I didn't have much time for sewing either, but look forward to more time for it now.

    Hi Speckled! I see that your subversive plan to turn innocent people into addicted quilters is working.

    The Paducah Hancock fabric store has beautiful chicken fabric. I found a panel on the remnant table, wwwrobertkaufman.com. Someday there will be a lap quilt, I hope. BTW, that is a gorgeous quilt!

    I know that some of you like chicken fabric, too. Looking through my stash, here is another favorite, by Timeless Treasures: PATT#VILLAGE-C7157. The print reminds me of Spain. Paducah Hancock also carried this one, also found on the remnant table. Could some of you show pictures of your chicken quilts?
