I have decided that the reason I don't post everyday is that I just don't have anything to talk about. We always say my husband has the gift for gab in our house.
After I took part in Barb's Rooster Party I realized that I have not shown you my Rooster Quilt that was among my rooster pics I took for that post.
This quilt was not really a kit but I did purchase a bag of fabric cut into about 8"x10" pieces to use for the applique. I also purchased the white fence fabric. I also purchased all of the rooster square patterns. This was three years ago when I first began quilting and I didn't know how to applique much less design a pattern like this. It is all machine appliqued with a satin stitch and machine quilted. I actually used invisible thread and stitched over the black lines on the white background wire fabric. (Well, maybe I didn't always stay exactly on the lines. But with invisible thread--who cares.
Here is the series of block patterns I used.
I took a closeup so you could see the designer in case you want to make one of these. I have tried to find her on the internet to see what other great "Color Me Patterns" that she has, but have not been able to locate her. I purchased this pattern and fabric at the Dallas Quilt Show. Making this quilt was a blast.
As you can see I have more patterns than I used on the wall hanging. I first made all 12 roosters and then decided I wanted a wall hanging. What did I do with the other blocks? I'll save that for another day.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
