Lori and I had a little fun yesterday.
We ordered some new patterns. They are a mixture of pieced and applique, some traditional and some primitive country by Country Threads. See them in the widget thingy in the sidebar.
Country Threads is a wonderful quilt shop on a farm in Garner Iowa, famous for both their quilt camps in the big red barn and as the “quilt shop in a chicken coop.” They have had several patterns featured in Country Living (TM) Magazine.
So many projects so little time!
I love chickens. They are fun to watch and we really prefer our own fresh eggs to those available in the stores. They aren't any cheaper but they are certainly way better.
Naturally I bought a bunch of Country Threads chicken themed patterns. This one completed by Kim at Stillmeadow Quilting was particularly appealing, probably because I have some black Australorp hens. I think Deputy Chicken (who is really called Home to Roost) will be moving way out west this year.
Y'all come back!
