Sunny side up on a Design Wall Monday

Rise and shine! We have fried eggs, sunny side up on the menu, I mean quilt, today.



It took waaay longer than I anticipated to get this border on the quilt. I didn't really know how many fried eggs I would need and after putting them on the design wall I knew I needed to make more.



I had planned just to put them on the upper and lower corners but instead I opted for randomly spaced fried eggs. I'm thinking that a great motif to quilt between the eggs would be strips of bacon.



I think you can see in this picture the fabric I used for the eggs has a swirly design in it. Kinda like the texture of real eggs. It is a new Kona fabric called Dimensions. They have it here at Fabric Shack.

And I've been thinking of names for my fine polka dotty hens. I like old-fashioned ones like Agnes or Beulah or Tillie and I think I'll do some kind of name placards when I get the quilt back from the quilter.



This one is definitely my favorite. That addled look and the appearance of the third eye lead me to believe she needs a special name. My oldest son is quite creative and he looked at her and said we should call her "Cher" - pronounced like "chair". He said it was short for Chernobyl. OMG!!! I know that it is kinda sick but I think it is funny. I feel for her, I really do.

Have a great day and I hope you got a good breakfast!
Happy stitching-

  13. If you are looking for suggestions for names, I can suggest those of my grandmothers - Elsie Elizabeth and Sarah Alberta. My Aunts from that generation could also have namesakes.... Clara Belle, Flora Mae, and Hettie Louise. (poor Aunt Clara had to put up with being tortured once Clarabelle the Clown came into existence!) Love the quilt!

  15. Your fried egg border is the perfect one to finish off this quilt. It is just the cutest quilt. Someone else suggested a name that I was going to mention too - Bertha which was one of my grandmothers's name. You are so creative and funny. I see where your son gets his humor.
