I had forgotten I had ordered the material below from an etsy store called Threads of Conversation. Well it came in today..yepee If any of you have been visiting Jane's Fabric and Quilts, you will see all the lovely fabric she has been purchasing. I have been having to wipe the slobber off my chin from drolling so much when looking at it...not any more....I got some pretty awesome fabric today myself.


Trying to keep busy today as my son is leaving. I actually had sandwiched three quilts on Saturday, the baby quilt shown before, this one and one of my fun ruler quilts. Well, I got this one done today. It is for my husband. He loves chickens, we have had chickens as long as I can remember, not here, he really misses them.

That is my son holding up the quilt... I was reading a blog one day and she had mentioned that she serges around her quilts before she binds them (I wish I could remember what blog to give her credit), so I did it with this quilt. I can not believe how easy the binding went on. I will serge around my quilts for now on.

Barb yes I am drooling over your fabrics.
I have a serger hiding somewhere and serging the edges of a quilt soes not sound like a bad idea at all.

Missy said...

Oooh...yummy fabric! Drooling has commenced!

Cute chicken quilt. Very neat about serging the edge of the quilt before binding it. Wish I had a serger!

Now please excuse me while I go wipe my drooly chin...LOL

Great idea to serge. I always stitch mine first but serging would be quicker.

Great fabrics. I enjoy the Threads blog too.

Ooooo pretty fabric, I wish I could pet it. I can't believe you "forgot" about it.

Great guy quilt you made for your DH.

That fabric is GORGEOUS. You make such pretty quilts (and so quickly) that I expect we'll see what you do with the fabric pretty quickly! I am ashamed to admit that my serger never came out of the box since we moved here over 5 years ago. I only used it at my other house if DH threaded it for me and was on "standby" in case I had trouble with it. I just never got the hang of it.

Love the quilt. I love the "serge around your quilt before you bind it" idea -- wish I had a serger. Maybe someday.

OMG I LOVE the fabric. DROOL DROOL DROOL I guess I’ll have to start going to Etsy and looking for fabric. I just don’t like having to pay for shipping. But sometimes to get the pretty fabrics, I’ll have to do that
