Adding to the Flock

Christine was her for a couple of hours last night to sew.  I decided to make a couple of chicken blocks to add to the one I made last week. 

I am using my small stash of 30's prints for my chickens.  The background is a pale yellow Kona cotton.  I made all of the beak strips and the red parts for the heads of the chickens last week so that makes it easier to make the rest of the block when I have a bit of sewing time.

There is going to be sashing and cornerstones between the chickens.

The flock is growing...three chickens as of last night.

Tonight, I made two more chickens--a blue chicken (if you look closely, you can see little chicks on the blue fabric!)...

And a yellow chicken.

Here is the entire flock so far:

I plan on making 4 more chickens before adding the sashing and cornerstones.


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the chickens...I haven't made a chicken quilt in a while and think I need to do one this summer...thanks for the inspiration!

  2. You are going to have a lot of eggs down the line !! :) :)

  3. Your chicken flock is gorgeous! Prettiest chickens I ever saw!

  4. Your chickens look great--such fabulous colors! I can just imagine the colors of their eggs. :0)

  5. Adorable chickens and great 30's prints! I have several fabrics in common with you.

  6. Your chickens put a smile on my face. They are so bright and cheerful.
