Black Tie Boogie Blog Hop!

Hope everyone had a great Turkey day yesterday! Are you ready for the final day of the Black Tie Boogie Blog Hop? If you are new to this hop, you will have fun finding rooster, hen, turkey, and other bird themed projects to celebrate the season.

Thanks to Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt for hosting this hop and to our cheerleader, Vickie!

I made 2 projects for this hop and my hubby made 1 project! The first is my own design and features a silly little turkey trying his hardest to get people to eat chicken or fish instead!

Not a Turkey!

This little wall-hanging was really fun to make! I echo quilted around the turkey, the chicken pot pie table, and the pumpkins. Then, I free motion quilted the words, “Happy Thanksgiving.” A great little scrap busting project!

For my second project, I really wanted a chicken themed quilt to hang in my chicken themed kitchen!! Cluck, cluck! In my stash, I had this pattern called “French Country Roosters” by Clothworks and the fabric to go with it. The finished size is 32-inches by 32-inches.

I think the fabric is no longer available, but you can still get the pattern for free here.

My hubby got into the spirit of all things chicken and painted this serving bowl at a local paint-your-own-ceramics place during a family outing. He grew up on a chicken farm so he knew that hens and roosters would be a great theme for the platter. And, check out the fun inside!!
