For about two years now I have been saving chook fabric.
My first ever quilt was called roosting roosters, and I made this in country fabrics and checks, and it still sits on the sofa in my living room.
Some time after making this I thought about making a chook quilt in chook fabric, and thats when my quest to save as many chook fabrics as I could began.
Finally the quilt has begun. Here are the first two blocks ( I have not sewn on the button eyes yet), but you can see how cute this will be,
As you can see, the blocks will either be check with a chicken in chicken pattern or a check chook on a chicken fabric, (try saying that fast)
Below is a close up of the yellow one, this cute chook print was a Birthday gift from the lovely Cheryll, of Gone stitchin. The green check is left over from my first quilt.
All of the chooks have their crowns in red check, and their heads are either in brown check or green check.
The centre block will feature a chicken coop,
This will be a project for me over my Christmas holidays.
