FNWF.....

... so these little fat chooks were spotted in the garden this morning ...


they are a UFO from last year ... and didn't need much work.... I used bear stuffing beads so they sit nicely... and have funny googly eyes....

I did this block for the "Aiming for Accuracy" quiltalong last week... the new block is out now so I must get moving....


This months swap block is a Braced Star - I have made several attempts and have battled with this one....
between the measurements and templates things are just not meeting....



Righto, Gotto Go.... dinner is ready ........


Thanks Cheryll for having us last night - looking forward to seeing what everybody did....

Such cute chooks - and dinner looks great too. Your block looks great - but obviously it was a bit of a slow process to get there.

Great use of selvedges, the chickens look so cute.
Great blocks. Keep my dinner on the warmer, will be there soon.

quilary said...

I always forget to cut long selvedges, and was going to toss all the little bits I have, but now I think a chookie pincushion or two might be the answer!
