At first glance you might think this is a Christmas quilt, but there is not one "Christmas fabric" in it.
However, I named it
"Christmas Dinner" !
This regal appliqued rooster was my first project and the first thing I quilted on my new Janome. That process was fun and frustrating all at the same time, after all, my machine and I were "getting to know each other".
I'm happy to report, my Janome and I are now friends.....for the most part.
Ranchman and I were given 2 hens and a rooster this past spring.
They scratch and peck all day long, and watching them chase grasshoppers is hilarious !
I started making "chicken" quilts because I needed to come up with a design for a blog hop and thought it might be fun to recreate my entertaining chickens in a quilt.
Christmas Dinner is my 3rd chicken quilt. Since then I seem to have become known for rooster quilts.
I'm currently working on another quilt using 6 of Florine's whimsical rooster designs.
