A Very Pretty Chicken Quilt

Not too long ago I was contacted by a lady named Rebecca who found one of my chicken photos online and wanted to use the image for creating a quilt. Needless to say, I was flattered that she asked! She promised to share a photo when the quilt was complete.

I’ll just take a moment here to admit that my sewing skills are rudimentary, at best. I can sew a button on a shirt and mend clothes, but I never was much good at creating a garment, patchwork block, or other more intricate sewing projects. So I have to say that quilts like Rebecca’s really amaze me. 🙂

Rebecca contacted me the other day with photos of the finished piece. It measures 31″ x 23″ and looks fantastic!

I love her artistic representation of my chickens! She named her creation ‘Del and DaisyMae’. Rebecca will be entering her artwork in a juried show in San Antonio…best wishes with your entry, Rebecca!

Here is a close-up…

I love the detail!

Have you ever created quilts or other artwork depicting chickens?

    That quilt has to win! I’ve never seen such intricate detailing on a quilt. I am one of those unfortunate ones that keeps trying but my quilts are far from art and would never win awards.

    Wow, the quilt pic is gorgeous. I quilt a bit, also, and I can tell you a lot of hours went into this art quilt. I’d be surprised if it did at least place or win in a show.

      Thank you, Toni, if it is chosen for the exhibit, or wins a prize (fingers crossed), I’ll let Lisa know.

      Thank you, Debbie. The eyes are always the most important part. I’m sorry I do not have a video, but I created the eyes using just a base solid color of fabric (medium brown for both chickens), then “painting” with several different threads to give the color variation, finishing up with black ink for the pupil and a tiny dab of white fabric paint for the highlights. 🙂
