Cock-A-Doodle-Do!

Borders done, quilting done, binding done, hanging sleeve done!  I may call this one Ruffled Feathers since it's the first time I've ever free motion quilted feathers and they look a bit ruffled.  Or a lot ruffled.  :)  But done is good and this one is destined to hang in my dining room.  Perfect for that room I think!

Marlene!! I'm back from vacation and have caught up on all your lovely posts since I was gone! Your handwork is so yummy! I just love the rooster quilt! Am I mistaken or is it you that loves primitive art/objects?? The bunny quilt is going to be precious and I'm loving the burp cloths. I have made one of those after seeing some at one of my grandchild's baby showers. They are so cute. have you seen the cloth covered diaper wipe boxes matched with a burp cloth? Very chic!! Check out quilt pictures on my blog. More are coming!

Yep "done" IS VERY good! And, "ruffled" feathers are WAY better than I can do! Fun quilt...hope the "special someone" that receives it, appreciates those feathers. =)

I just showed my daughter your blog and NOW she wants ME to MAKE ONE FOR HER!!Well, she and her husband are both "chicken year" kids.(so I should have known better)

I don't have a chicken passion, but I just love this. Perfect colors and fabrics and your 'feathers' are just enough for this. I like the scrappy final border - balances the piece. Great Dining Room piece.Nicely done.

Sandy said...

Great rooster quilt! I like that it's just the silhouettes. I've always cringed when any kind of bird is around. I DON'T DO birds! However, there is something about roosters I enjoy, fake ones that is. :)

Kathy said...

Love the quilt. I have a rooster quilt in my kitchen. But I have high ceilings and need a couple more wall hangings. I think one like yours will be perfect there. But, it also gives me one more thing to do. lol
