wall chicks

Chicken Wrangling

Just a few of the chicks I made from a basic pattern in a Country Threads quilt book. Altered the design a little and put them in homemade barnwood frames.

  7. They're gorgeous! I love the frames but mostly I like how you did different 'breeds' with the quilt patterns.

    Sorry about the deleted comment -- my connection's so slow you got the wrong comment; it was one I sent to the last blog! Sometimes I just wonder how Blogger's working...

  9. I really like the barn wood frames.

    It amazes me how much a stack of rectangles and triangles can look like a bird.

  10. What cool chicken quilts! The only quilts I've done were too ambitious for my time and I never finished. Oh, yes, there was an earlier quilt years ago that I finished, but I'd used such old worn-out fabric that it soon came apart :( These look fantastic in their wood frames.
