To reward myself for spending all day Saturday helping my son with his history paper I spent Sunday sewing. Do you want to know anything about the presidential election of 1912? I didn't think so. Anyway I got 16 more blocks done on the Jelly & Jam quilt so I am 75% done with the blocks. There is another row at the top I couldn't get in the picture. The sashing is going to take some time. Down in the left hand corner is my I.S.T. H. Schnibble for this month- and yes it does have a chicken theme.
I didn't plan on this turning into a chicken quilt, it just took on a life of its own. I knew I wanted to do bright colored stars with dotty fabrics. I did one block with a polka dot background. I loved the block but the background didn't do it for me. So I went looking through my stash and found this fabric - chicken tracks!! Well there was no stopping it then.
The dotty chickens in the center spaces were in my stash and are from the Giggle Feathers collection by Robert Roderick for Studio e fabrics. Wish I had more. The sashing is yellow with orange dots and the cornerstones are an orange tone-on-tone dot. Sensing a theme here? Now my quilt doesn't look exactly like the pattern because I like square quilts, I got my idea for this setting from Kim. Check out her Schnibble. My plan for today is to get the borders on this - and do some laundry. Hope your day is great!
