Here a Chick, there a chick...


everywhere a chick, chick......the pattern for this quilt was called "Chicken Dinner"---but I changed that to "Here a Chick"---didn't like the idea of eating my cute chickens!! LOL!!! These were sure fun to make and I may have showed them before---but here they are all finished!


I've also been working on an Asian quilt that has Duponi silk as part of the fabric---the rest is cotton---it is very pretty and really caught my eye at the Columbus Quilt Show last month, I'm taking it very slowly what with working with the silk and all. The instructions have you interface the silk with a fusible interfacing before cutting out the pieces---this does make it easier to work with.


Sometimes it's good to slow down and enjoy the process and not hurry so, like I tend to do, especially with the Project Linus quilts---I usually am doing a pattern that I have done before and race right through it---I become very goal oriented and want the project done right now, so I can go on to the next one. Maybe sometimes that can be a good thing, but sometimes it's a good thing to slow down!!!!! What do you think?


Getting close to my 300th entry and my second year blogiversary!!!! Can't believe that it has been 2 years since my daughter, Anne was encouraging me and helping me to start a blog--thanks Anne! It sure has been fun and I've loved "meeting" all you people out there!! Stay tuned for a give-away---I think you'll like it!!!!


Let quilting help you make someone smile!!!

That is such a cute quilt. I think I've seen some of the blocks when you were making them.

Slowing down is a good thing, I should know, I'm always slow LOL.

I also tend to be goal oriented. someone recently said her favorite quilt was the one she was currently working on: me, too. But like a good book I rush to the ending while not wanting it to end. I do try to stop or slow down between sections, just so I can admire the work.
