Buggy Barn Chicks

This was way out of my box, probably into the next county---but I had to give these chicks a try because they are so cute..............so here are the first two "practice"ones that I made yesterday and today----they took me awhile to figure out, but I think I finally got it!!! YEAH!!!!! This was definitely a different way to do blocks, but it was fun after I figured it out and I'm still not sure I'm doing it just right!! LOL! I used scraps from my stash to do these first blocks as practice blocks.

The pattern is a Buggy Barn pattern and is called "Barn Chicks" and is in the book "Certifiably Crazy." Don't know how many practice blocks I'll do------maybe a couple more so I feel very comfortable with the pattern.

Our heat wave is still with us---our outdoor thermometer has been getting up to 105 degrees every day for the past week now----------just plain too hot, even with the A/C running, IMHO!!! LOL! The weatherman says no rain in sight, except a couple days of a 10% chance of scattered showers!!

Everyone stay cool, if you are in a hot place, too!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Those are really cute, Jan! You can always turn your practice blocks into potholders - but they look good to me, I'd put them in the quilt!

Hope you get some relief soon, that is just way too hot.
