ANY QUILTERS Here?

Post by Poultryprincess » Sun Dec 13, 2015 10:49 pm

My quilting turned into a nitemare for my hubby.
We were City folk ( born & raised ) & I got a hankering for chickens.
I wanted to move from Toronto to a place I could have poultry - but hubby didn't.
My Traditional quilting, turned mean.
I went on a mission ~ EVERY quilt had a chicken on it.
Even a self portrait with CHICKENS!

Finally I got my little farm with chickens ( TEN YEARS LATER! )
Now I want to make even MORE chicken quilts!
My next mission is to have GOATS...but I will have to figure out a NEW way to convince him.
I just don't think hubby will cave as easy the second time.


Here is a quilt I made of my rooster "Fonzy"

wow! that's beautiful!
i used to quilt, not big ones....just little ones-kid size/crib size. then i started doing coasters for the table for under pots....birds like cardinals and stuff. i never really knew i wanted or liked chickens until after that....LOL. then i ran out of time for quilting. but i love the homemade handmade quilts. i have 1 queen sized made by a mennonite family we used to get maple syrup from when i was young, and another that my step mom and dad gave me one year. i can never have enough of them! maybe i'll start up again, after i get soap making out of my system. LOL

That's gorgeous! I tried quilting in my younger years, but gave it up around the fifth time I sewed the square I was working on to my own clothing. Figured it wasn't meant to be LOL

Thanx for all the wonderful comments!
There are SO many of the Chicken quilts, that are packed away.
Will post some of the others when I have time to dig them up.
Thanx again (*o*)

Very nice, love the rooster.
Got back to quilting after 30 years, now quilting for grandchildren, the second one is closest I got to a "farm theme".

SWEEEEET!!!!
LUV the colors of your STAR quilt!!! :running-chicken:

The center panel on your Yellow quilt really does look "Country"
Nothing cosier than a quilt, eh?

I have been on a 3 year hiatus....because of renovations.
Just got my sewing room back this summer.

SEW do you know what is your next project?
I have too many ideas & not enough time.
Planned to quilt today but instead scrubbed out chicken dishes.
Have to take advantage of the Spring weather!!!
