Last week, I posted about chickens invading my June kitchen.
Actually, they spilled over into my living room when I made this mini-quilt for my table topper rack. I had a very small remnant of this fabric called Le Poulet by Windham and fussy-cut all of the elements of the quilt.
As of this writing, this fabric is available on eBay.
I just added some chicken-wire fabric for the background and polka-dot for the binding from my stash.
The backing was made from scraps ….
….and I finished it off with some simple machine quilting
There was one fussy-cut of a hen which I didn’t want to lose in a drawer full of scraps, so I added strips to make it into a block right away. This can be used to construct a tote or gift bag, a potholder or maybe a pocket on an apron. It’s ready to go.
I also found this great vintage thermometer to add to my chicken-coop kitchen.
