Chicken Quilt Finished!
I finished the paper pieced chicken quilt that I won earlier this year. I used every chicken too, on front and on the back. I hope you remember which ones you made. Elizabeth Clark suggested I pair them with the churn dash which sounded pretty “farmish” so I make all the churn dashes with a color wheel in hand, constantly referencing the colors to be sure they were compatible. The piano key border is made up of all the leftover two color strips from the sides of the churn dashes. I sewed them randomly into 4 very wide strips and then subcut them 2.5 inches like the side of the churn dash-I had only three left over. I call this quilt “Chicken About Color” because I LOVE color but am always skittish about using a lot of it. With the help of the color wheel for making the churn dashes, I think this quilt turned out a winner. Thank you all for your gorgeous chickens, I would never have been able to make them all myself.
