Backyard Blooms Chickens

Chickens quilt pattern

There was no way I couldn’t make a Chicken quilt with my Backyard Blooms fabric…it was meant to be made into chickens!  

I made the small throw size of this pattern, which means I had to choose 8 fat quarters and took 1 hour (or more) just trying to narrow down which fabrics to use.  They would all be so good in this pattern.

My favorite block is this gal, in all her navy blue floral glory:

The reds, yellows, and tan solids are all Artisan Cottons by Windham Fabrics.  I’m not sure of the color names but the SKU’s are 40171-29, 40171-53, and 40171-62 in case you want to track them down.   

Bella solids in Mustard, Cherry, and Paper Bag are also close matches.

Kaitlyn quilted this with a chicken wire/honeycomb design like my other Chicken quilts

I just can’t quit the chicken wire quilting!

I had this quilt hanging in my dining room for a few weeks so it wouldn’t get wrinkly before I could take photos of it. 

We were eating dinner one night and my 9 year old said “Mom…it’s kind of weird to have that quilt in here while we’re eating chicken”.   

After that it was never the same, and I had to take it down LOL.

    Your quilt is adorable!!! I bought this pattern the first time you blogged about it, but I have promised myself not to start any new quilts until all of my other “in process” quilts are done. I just may have to break that promise. :-)

      Break that promise! ;) It’s a fun one to make…and the small size goes together quick(er).

    You should know every time you show one of your amazing quilts it costs me money. I need each one of them. Not just want, but desperately need. I truly love these chickens! Yes, your nine year old is right. It would be hard to eat chicken while looking at your darling pets. Literally, in your case!

    • Allison February 13, 2020 at 2:38 pm #

      LOL I’m so sorry! I’ll try not to post any new cute quilts for at least another week or so ;)

    This quilt just absolutely blows away your other 2 colorways of this pattern! I want this exact quilt.

    • Allison February 13, 2020 at 2:37 pm #

      Thank you! I didn’t think I’d like the “floral” chickens until I made this one, now it’s all I like!
