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!
