I have new patterns and quilts to share with you this week!
First off.....how have I even survived these last 12 years without making a chicken quilt until now??!!
Once I got this idea into my head it was stuck there for a year until I finally made these hens.
Not gonna lie...figuring out and writing this pattern challenged me big time....but watching these blocks come together made my quilting life complete.
Aren't they so cute lined up like that?!
I even took this quilt down to show the real ladies for their approval...
...she gave it a good look so I'm thinking she likes it. She was more interested in the cracked corn Jane was carrying around.
The pattern includes 3 sizes, Small/Crib, Medium Throw, and Large Throw. The blocks are made with fat quarters, and yardage. The background I used is Essex Linen yarn dyed in Steel. It's my favorite slightly textured backing fabric and is easy to sew with. The last page of the pattern includes all of the cut sizes for each block in case you don't want to make a whole quilt.
Jane loves this quilt as much as I do! ;)
Edit: I've had so many questions about fabrics for this quilt! Here are a few of them that I could find (if the links don't work anymore try putting the name of the fabric into Google):
