I am totally inspired to create a chicken wall quilt. I had picked up this fun pattern at our local quilt shop, Quilters Cove, http://www.quilterscove.net/ not long ago called Dancing Chickens, but had not started the project as of yet. But after this last weekend’s visit with chicken folk, I now feel the urge to create “chicken”. I am a quilter more than anything else and have been quilting for 30 years or more. My business is quilt related which helps me keep in the groove of quilting. See our quilt basting tools and more at https://www.quiltak.com

So I am adding a photo of the wall quilt I have started. It is applique type construction using fusible paper. So easy and goes together quickly. Sometimes it’s just so nice to do a quickie project. The company that created this pattern also has many others of the same flavor and others that are different. http://www.bigforkbaycottonco.com/ It’s a great site and you can tell these folks have a sense of humor regarding chickens.

Today is a rainy, drizzly day at the Central Oregon Coast. A great day to play in the studio. I picked out my fabrics last night and started ironing the patterns on the fusible web. The fabric gathering is always the best part, especially when you have been collecting for 30 years and your fabric stash has all colors, types and patterns imaginable in it. I will keep a photo journal of the process. I might even get very far along with this project today. Bari
