The pattern is Sugar Dish by Cluck, Cluck, Sew. Of course my version is larger than hers but you know it is a once in a blue moon rarity for me to make a quilt smaller than a pattern.
The fabrics are from Urban Chiks by Moda. There are 2 collections here and I know one was called Swell and I think the other was called Hullabaloo. I love the soft vintage quality of the colors -kinda like sheets from the 70's. I remember when printed sheets came into fashion. My mother who loved fabric and color as much as I do embraced this new trend and threw out all the plain white sheets in the linen closet and bought printed sheets for all of our beds. Mine were a yellow floral - I've loved yellow since I was a child!
I didn't iron these (as you can clearly see) I just slapped them on my design wall to see how many more I need. Only 7 of the pieced blocks and 6 of the dresdens. The pattern has that row of dresdens at what would be the foot of the quilt, but I moved them up. I often put a second quilt at the foot of the bed and I don't want to cover these darlings up.
Now when I released these blocks from their hermetically sealed plastic
Hmmm...I know this isn't a chicken quilt but it certainly has lots of chicken connections - Urban Chiks, Cluck, Cluck, Sew- maybe that's why it makes me so happy! Oh I wish I was going to have more sewing time this week but boy there is a lot on my calendar. Hopefully I can finish up the pieced blocks. Check back next week and see how far this progresses.
Have a great time checking out the design walls today!
