Over the summer, I had the opportunity to take classes in the week before the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. I blogged about taking the Chicken Challenge class with Ann Shaw several months ago. In that first post, you can see my chicken start to take shape as well as chickens from some of the other students in class.
I finished the free motion quilting over the summer using Aurifil #2000, and then I put the quilt aside for a while. This past weekend, I pulled it out and decided to add the binding to finish it. I used a black/tan chicken wire fabric for the binding, and I like how it frames my crazy chicken just right!
Here’s a look at my completed chicken in the afternoon sunshine:
In our kitchen, we have decorated with chickens so this wall-hanging definitely adds some wild color to this wall:
Now, my husband spent part of his childhood on a chicken farm so I can’t wait to see his reaction to this new addition.
Ann does have some scheduled classes around the Vancouver/Portland area if you are interested in learning this technique. Go check out her website and click on the Class Schedule link.
Hope you enjoy my little chicken!
