    How much longer do you have before your hatch? I just love hatching my own! It's so exciting! Keep us updated! Post pics please! I really love having a broody hatch some. In all the years we've had chickens, we've only had that happen twice. One of them was a little banty hen. She was in our hoop house, and I can't remember how, but something got in and got her and a couple of the chicks. The next morning, the rest of the chicks were in the yard, a cat had gotten one of them, It was a horror story! The other hen hatched them in the hen house. It is so much fun to watch a mama hen with her chicks! If I get a broody this year, I may try to buy some eggs to put under her. Have you ever heard of putting chicks under a broody? I will have to research that. If I could get a broody between now and when my chicks get here, I could let her raise them. But that probably won't happen. When I want a broody, I get none. [​IMG] When I don't want a broody, I may get 2! [​IMG]

    I did the Easter hatch along, so they will hatch on Saturday the 26th not too much longer!! Yes they seem to know when we want to pawn off some chicks lol and if you have a broody if you put the chicks under her at night when she is sleeping, when she wakes up it like oh wow I have babies. I like to watch a momma hen with the chicks, it's amazing how they teach their young,

    I ordered my supplies for this block, now to wait for it to come in and see how far off the color is vs the PC.

    OH Goody!!! [​IMG] I can't wait until I can order mine! I ordered the fabric from MSQ that is in the youtube video on the prairie flower and it looks just as it looked online. I think it should be just as it looks. If not, let us know as that is where I'm going to order mine!

    Hey Katsdar~ MSQ has a video called quilting with panels. I didn't look at it, but maybe it can help you with your Marilyn panels.

    thanks will check it out!!

    ok here is the yellow I picked
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Yellow is Bella Solid 30's yellow Green is fresh grass Dogwood trail ll

    white is whisper whites, it is a white on white and it has beige off white in with it too but I will have enough of the WOW to have enough for these blocks and I need the other for another project.

    now to wait to see them in person!!! [​IMG] if the yellow doesn't work they have one a little lighter but we will see.

    They look lovely! Did you get them all from MSQ? I hadn't thought of charm packs and jelly rolls for the other parts. I' never used them before, so I don't think about them. I haven't looked at whites yet. It's going to be a couple of weeks before I can order my fabric. I resigned my job last thanksgiving, and where I don't miss or regret it, I do miss my paycheck! [​IMG] Would like to find something to make a little cash and still stay home! Wishful thinking! [​IMG]
