Chicken Quilt Label

This week, I made a 6" chick block from Lori Holt's "Farm Girl Vintage" book as a label for my chicken quilt.  This involved some embroidery to give the chick some legs!

Here is the completed block:

I turned under a 1/4" on all sides and machine top stitched it to the backing of the quilt.  The quilt is all ready to go to Cathy's house for long arm quilting.  Here is the backing fabric:

Here is the front of the quilt:

I'm calling it "In The Coop."

My daughter and I went shopping for fabric for a new quilt for her yesterday at Mad About Patchwork.  She graduated from university last year and has finally decided on a pattern and fabric for her grad gift.  This will be my project for the next little while!!!  It will be queen sized...


  1. Love the chick quilt and label. I have to do the same type of shopping with my daughter soon. Those are great fabrics.

  2. Your Chick Block is so cute and I love your coop quilt. Your daughter has beautiful taste in fabric.

  3. Cute idea. Will you use pens to write the label? Do you use Pigma or another type?

    1. I use a Pigma pen for my labels. I notice that the printing fades a bit when I wash the quilt, though.

  4. A perfect block for the coop label!
    Such fresh and beautiful fabrics for your daughter's quilt!

  5. Love your chicken coop, and the label is perfect!

  6. I love that a label is another opportunity to have a little creative fun with your quilt. Perfect for that egg-cellent Coop"!

  7. What a great chicken coop quilt! Pretty fabrics she selected for her quilt. Can't wait to see what pattern you selected.

  8. Love your chicken quilt and the label is the perfect finish! Nice fabric choices too!

  9. Love the chicken coop and the label.
