Le Poulet Mini-Quilt Table Topper

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.
