Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Just finished the quilt top for the "Fox in the Christmas Hen House" and I am pretty darn pleased with it. Turned out to be bigger than I originally planned (it's approximately 80 x 94 inches) but I always believe the quilt decide what size it will be, not me. The back will be the same chicken print as the fussy cut chickens in the final border. I do not have enough for the entire back so I am waiting for inspiration to strike on what creative way I can solve that challenge. Plus I have to get another much smaller quilt done by May for my California grandkids' school auction and I need to get started on that one.
So Hen House will rest for awhile. I thought about renaming it "71 chickens" which is the count on that fussy cut border. Now comes the fun part. I have to go to my sewing room and clean up a bit before I start the next one. Not the fun part. I was lying.
