Chicks quilt

chicks quilt

Continuing the ever-growing chicken theme around our house, I made this quilt from a kit purchased from Hollyhill Quilts, but I didn’t like the fabrics for the chicks that came with the kit, so I substituted my own fabrics from my way-too-large fabric stash. The chicks and beaks are appliqued (with a zigzag stitch around, not as hard as I thought it would be), the legs are stitched with black thread (in a tighter zigzag) and the eyes are sewn-on black buttons. I like quilts this size, for both making and displaying – I guess you could use it as a bed cover too, as long as you didn’t mind the fact that it wouldn’t cover the bed from the top to the bottom (not long enough).
