My Day To Boogie With The Chicks

A shout-out to Madame Samm and Vickie for all they've done to make this hop so fabulous!
I don't have a rooster cock-a-doodle-doing in my yard like Vickie does, so I had to 
sew me some feathered projects. If I had a rooster, I'd want him to be like Vickie's Fonzie
He is such a stud! 
Check him out HERE, along with the whole Black Tie Boogie schedule.

These guys have really gotten into this Black Tie Boogie Blog Hop.
(That Other Lady shared one of her vintage cups with me...love it!)

I went looking for a rooster and found the perfect one by Julie Lynch on her "Jaunty Rooster"
pattern. He looks very handsome in some of the "Home To Roost" fabric from Red Rooster.

Right-side up look at fabric

This is a small quilt, 45" x 45"



Quite a while ago That Other Lady told me about a really funny and sweet lady named Lynn
(from Thimblemouse and Spouse) who had some awesome chicken fabric. 
I, of course, had to have some and Lynn (who IS very funny) sent me some of this fabulous
fabric by Timeless Treasures. I smiled the whole time I was sewing on it...I just love it!

The hubby had a shirt that matched my apron perfectly, so he became a sort-of-willing
model for me (even though it had a ruffle.) I love the chicken soup recipe on the fabric!
 

Aren't these just the cutest chicks!

I'm ROTFLMBO ! You're too funny and talented! Fonzie would be jealous of your rooster quilt if I would let him surf the web to see it,but I won't...he might go to one of those sites that have "those hen" pictures. Your apron is so cute ! Wolf whistle at those hairy legs poking out under the ruffle ! LOL

Judy B said...

Quilt n Queen said...

OMG Carol...I love your rooster quilt...he's a rooster with an attitude, but I think most roosters have an attitude, the border fabric is perfect. Luv the apron, the Timeless Treasure fabric is just the cutest. Yup...hairy legs below the apron...no chicken legs there! Thanks for sharing!!

Britt-Inger said...

Katherine said...

Projects to crow about, Carol. I'm especially loving that apron - the fabric is just perfect, right down to the chicken wire print on the straps. You do it everytime, don't you?!!! You find the perfect fabric and make the most gorgeous project with all the right details. :o) Can I be a little jealous? ;o)

LJ said...

OK, I'm back. I had to go to Red Rooster and take a good look at Home to Roost. How did I miss that adorable fabric that you used in the border of your quilt? It's just adorable. Your quilt is fabulous and that rooster is just as cocky as can be and as they are, too! Love the chicks on the pockets of the apron but the black and white cooking fabric is just as cute. You have a wonderful eye for design. Thanks for sharing with us all, Carol.
