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.
This fabric is my favorite ….. love the chicken pattern and the quilt. You have done such a great job.
Thanks for all your inspiration and all you do !
Gorgeous quilt, but I was in stitches over your 9yo comment lol!
Thank you! The things kids say LOL!
Gotta love kids when they say it like it is. That is hilarious.
They always tell it like it is! ;)
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).
What a fun pattern! Absolutely loved your 9 year old’s comment…. honest and hilarious!
Kids are always (brutally) honest aren’t they LOL!
I love your Bloomin chicken quilt!! and I love how kids keep us chuckling.
Thanks Sue! They definitely do keep me on my toes!
This is adorable, the absolute perfect fabric for the pattern! Such a funny comment about the chickens in the dining room…haha!!
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!
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.
Thank you! I didn’t think I’d like the “floral” chickens until I made this one, now it’s all I like!
Love the look of this bright chicken quilt. What white fabric did you use please?
The fabric is called Backyard Blooms, it doesn’t come to stores until July 2020. Thanks!
Well if this isn’t the prettiest chicken quilt I’ve seen! GREAT JOB!
It looks wonderful! Your son is hilarious!
When will your fabric line be available?
