WHAT DOES "FAT CAT PATTERNS" AND ISLAND BATIK HAVE IN COMMON????

CHICKENS!!!




                                                 LOTS AND LOTS OF CHICKENS!!!


          If you have read any previous post, I am doing a (secret) chicken quilt for my husband)

.  

Hence the bad quality photos, had a piece of material to throw over them in case he came in.


 Which he did while writing this post...causing me a heart attack.....not good when one is over fifty....



Some of them need eyes but I so love them.  I love using the Island Batik fabrics (of course you do Barbara, of course you do......smiling shamefully here).  Here is the link to Fat Cat Patterns, she has a lot of free patterns that You will totally love.

I have been doing these after he goes to bed, make sure he is snoring, and then I drown myself in my Island Batik Scrap bin.  It takes more time prepping these chickens than it does to blanket stitch around them.

Seven more to go.....  Probably won't have these done by his birthday in a few weeks but that is ok.....

Even if it isn't "done" by his birthday, you can show him how much you have gotten done and he will be really surprised.
Ya gotta love batik chickens.
