As I mentioned in a previous blog, my daughter raises a few chickens, enough to provide her family with eggs. Her girls have been involved in the care of them, and named most of them. One particularly feisty rooster they named "Stewpot", and they called his harem "the Chickateers". I needed a small quilt for an invitational exhibit called Artimage, and that year's theme was animals, so I decided to use the chickens for the subject of the quilt.
The chickens are all freezer paper pieced.
