Chicken Strips!

Chicken Strips is finished. Mr. Muddling said it ought to stay here, seeing we're all about chickens, but no.  It will go as planned to Quilts of Compassion. I DO like it though!  Karen Dianne, do any of these chicken fabrics look familiar to you?? A very long time ago, Karen Dianne sent me some of her treasured stash of chicken fabric she had received from her dear friend Daphanie. I have only let go of a bit at a time of these fabrics. They do look happy playing around in here though, don't they?

And here is the backing.

As usual, I had plenty of help with all aspects of this quilt. Although if you look closely, you will see that Lady is laying down on the job there behind Bruno.

My friend Sandy made this one, which will also be going to Quilts of Compassion. Isn't it pretty?  I almost kept this one, for sure!  Sandy's sister Peggy quilted this Christmas Tumblers quilt, and she did a beautiful job.

And here is the backing for that one. It is a totally Christmas quilt and so lovely!

I have several other projects in the works, including this star pattern one inspired by Katy. When I saw her using her Accuquilt die cutter (though she has the Studio), I had to get my Go! cutter out and start cutting elements for one of my own. It surely does make the blocks go together quickly when all the parts fit so perfectly!  I am all about easy. Yep. I am!

We are having a cold (for us. Yes I know Anna, it's not cold by your standards.) day here with colder due tonight and the next few days. But not to worry, I have a big pot of soup simmering on the stove and plenty of hot drinks on hand to keep us warm.  And can I just say, I'm very thankful we have plenty of nice, warm quilts!

I do hope you're having a good week, getting lots of happy things done and staying warm (or cool for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere!).

Hugs and kisses,

Gorgeous quilts! I can see why you were tempted to keep them both! ;-)

Hopefully your "cold" weather won't last too long ... although maybe you are wishing it would. I know my sister who lives in Austin is enjoying the "colder" weather.

You're so funny. Yes, I can't call you cold until you dip below freezing -- which, sadly for you, the forecast says will happen next Tuesday -- when it will be just 18 here -- not that far off from your 30! Beautiful quilts -- all of them. You're amazing -- always quilts on the go!!!

A lovely finish for Chicken Strips. Lovely use of some treasured fabric. These are both wonderful donation quilts.
Love seeing those stars growing with those gorgeous fabrics.
Stay warm!
