The new McCall's magazine, America Quilts for the Home, has the cutest pattern in it, entitled Big Boy!!! I love chickens, so I decided to make the quilt!
It is going to be a wall hanging so I am using fusible web on the pieces to be appliqued. I don't mind the stiffness when it is a wall hanging. I am going to blanket stitch the pieces onto the background fabric, using my machine.
The pattern has the best instructions for the "window" blocks. It is the first time I have made a block like this and it was so easy with the clear instructions.
Aren't the hens a hoot? Big Boy is very cute himself!!! I go to work tomorrow so Big Boy will be on the back burner for a couple of days again!!! I can't wait to get this quilt up on the wall. It is just so cheerful looking.
