December block-- Noah's ark like. The teeth of the crocodile are cool up close but the embroidery floss blends into the chicken body too much.

I LOVE the quilt tops posted with the black sashing, but since I used black backgrounds, couldn't. Next quilt maybe Smile

Oh all these chickens are roosting in high fashion. Everyone of the quilt tops is beautiful.
Hats off to BlueSnail for reminding everyone to make their chicken each month. Great Job.
Jan 16, 2013, 05:34 PM
After seeing everyones great quilt tops I am sorry I didn't do this one. Are you going to do the same this year with the fish?
Jan 17, 2013, 11:06 PM
I have been watching your fun and wonderful blocks come to life all through the year and have to tell you all...WONDERFUL! They are all so fun and original! Thanks for the fun eye candy!

It has been almost a year since the last post here. I finally started quilting the top. 11 birds down, 1 to go but my kitty doesn't agree with that Big Grin

Aneal, Maybe you need to make your kitty her own little quilt?? She looks cold. LOL
These sure were cute chickens everyone made. Be sure to post when you get it all done.
Jan 03, 2014, 10:28 AM
She has one of her own but always uses mine, finished or not Big Grin Big Grin
I'm almost done. Binding is on but I found two spots which I forgot to quilt so back to the machine it is Wink
Jan 03, 2014, 10:45 AM
The top is finished!

Anael, now that is what I call a "Happy" quilt, it makes a person smile just looking at it. Wondering what all those chickens are thinking of and what plans for mischief they have.
Jan 03, 2014, 12:13 PM
Thanks Patty! I have no idea either what they're up to but I'm sure the cat is in it too Big Grin Big Grin
Jan 03, 2014, 02:03 PM
I'm glad this was brought to the top again. I love these chickens and hope to get mine done someday.
Great quilts.

Have a Good Day!

Well, I don't know where I was when this all began, but I sure have enjoyed all of the pictures today !!! Every one is a treasure for sure----

Variety & Contrast means BUY EVERYTHING

Loved the quilt show!

Nice job quilters.


Friends divide our sorrows and multiply our joys.

WOW, all these chickens are amazing. I love seeing the finished quilts & everyone is so special & unique. I'm amazed how just the placement of the pupil in the eye can make the chicken look so different from another one. The chicken wire fabric on some is so it that real "hen house" feel. Every single one is so cheery & fun & bright & brings on a smile with each one I look at.

Fantastic work on these!!!! Thanks for sharing.


Jan 03, 2014, 09:15 PM
Holy Moly!!! I haven't followed this thread and boy have I been missing out! Soooo creative. I love "em!Smile

Jan 05, 2014, 08:51 AM
Haven't looked at this post since way back. The individual chickens are wonderful and the finished quilts are really great. Love them!
Jan 05, 2014, 02:00 PM
Loved seeing this again and how nice of a project this was. I need to get these out and get mine finished too.

This was a great BOM.
