    You need a model. Haven't you seen "Titanic"? :D Go and fetch one from the coop and have her pose for you.

    That quilt is gorgeous.

    Yeah, because chickens always stand still long enough for you to draw them.......

    Gorgeous quilt Blooie! Is that the actual pheasant tail feather hanging down? Very impressed with the 3-D effect. Great job!

    WOW, you have great talent gal... is the tail a feather or fabric - how did you do that?


    And it does not have to be a chicken, just a chicken THEMED item - any medium you choose...can't wait to see what you come up with [​IMG]

    I thought so, takes a lot of patience to do that quality of carving - guess that's why you don't see me enter those contests [​IMG]


    Hey, branch out...Dare to be Different and try a medium you have never done --- knit, crochet, sew??? Or modeling in clay - that would be easier than carving??

    Yep, it's a real pheasant tail feather. The fencing is done like barbed wire with metallic thread but it never seems to show up in photos the way it does when you're actually looking at it. In pictures you can see the strands but not the glint. The sky and the fall foliage are done with individual 2 inch squares cut from a bunch of assorted fabrics. Thank, everyone, for the kind words. I am very proud of this one....

    ....and still waiting for a chicken, but I have an excuse - Kendra is here and I'm trying to make her a belt to cover her MACE so when she gets it replaced it won't pull out again. She took my piece of paper and got out her box of crayons. So now I have to start ALLLL over and find another sheet of paper and everything. <sigh>
