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.

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.

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.

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 cute...gives 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.
