Making chickens


Having 2 friends expecting babies, I have been inspired to make a cot quilt or 2. I decided to make chickens first - I have done a chicken cot quilt before, which looked great but I no longer have the pattern. So I drew the chickens myself. Here are the first 6 blocks - there will be 12 altogether. I'll put a plain inner border, then I have some actual chicken fabric to be the outer border.

all these chickens are delightful, but my personal best it the top left, reminds me of a speckled hen my son used to have when we lived on a smallholding 20 years ago! Her name was loppy, and she used to watch TV on his lap!
