Chicken Wire Quilt in Chickadee

Hey, Hi there!

Are you hopping along with Chickadee?
What is Chickadee you say?

Well, it is an absolutely cute new fabric line by my friend 
Heidi Pridemore from 
The Whimsical Workshop.

Want to see?
I know, silly question.

Well, here it is:

It's all about the chickens!
Oh, and 10" squares.

I was so excited to get started, I cut my squares up before I even took a picture.
I did remember to show what the pretty cutting pile looked like.

What did I decide to do with my 10" squares?
Well, I made a Chicken Wire Quilt.
A very colorful one at that.

I cut my 10" squares into squares, rectangles and triangles.

Then I sewed them back together.
That is what we do, right?

I had to lay my pieces on the design floor (lol).
We are having a brand new building constructed that will hold my studio.
Until then, the floor will have to do.

I am not loving using the floor and am longing for a brand new, 
really big design wall!

I sewed my prices together into rows.
The rows into a quilt top.

I will wait to quilt this one up until the Long Arm is set up in the new studio.
How will I quilt it?
With an Edge to Edge Chicken Wire design, of course.

This quilt was not only easy and fun, but also inspired by my next door neighbors.
Would you like to meet them?

These are just a few of my feathered friends.
Their Momma is a crazy chicken lady (self proclaimed).
She is also the sweetest neighbor ever.

We live in East Texas and we had a beautiful day, 
so an outside picture or two happened.
I love the trees in my backyard view!
Don't you?

We decided to get a picture with the new Studio in the background.
It's gonna be awesome!

I hope you like my Chicken Wire Quilt creation.

If you are interested in the pattern it can be found on my website:
Just search for Chicken Wire.

Now hop on over to the next blog.
I've listed all the participants for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks for hopping along.
I hope you enjoy the journey.

Until next time,
happy quilting,
