Ta-Daaaah!!! Chickens.

Over a year ago, I found this book and HAD to have it! Each block represents a different chicken recipe, and the recipe is included. I thought it would be fun if the Wild Threads made a block each month and made the dish too, to eat at our meeting. We got through four months. Oh well. I kept up with my blocks though, and here is my top finally finished! I really like the setting and I'm glad I put the effort into the dark flanges around each block to set it off.

This is Chicken Divan. I used an embroidered corduroy for the sofa. Notice the empty chocolate box on the floor, and the book is 'The Sky Fell' by C. Little. Tooooo funny!
Chicken Caesar!

Stewed Chicken!
Hawaiian Chicken!

Chicken a la King!! This one really cracks me up! I put beads on his crown.

Chicken Chow Mein!

Chicken soup.

Southern Fried Chicken!

Chicken gumbo! My friend Cheryl made this block with the chickens feet hanging out of the pot. It looks great, I wish I had thought of that.

Chicken Italiano!

Chicken Cacciatore! Get it? Catch, cacciatore? Hee hee.

Chicken in a basket!
Aren't these the cutest and funniest blocks? I hope Linda Huber and Bonnie Collins come up with another fun pattern to make. I'll pick a backing from my stash this week and then I need help with quilting ideas, so start thinking please.


  1. You did a great job Lisa!!

  2. That sure looks like a fun quilt to keep you entertained for years. Love the pics.

  3. Love your quilt, it is just too funny, the chickens have so much character.
