O.K. This is fun.

Heat 'n Bond.  Zig Zag Stitch.  Playing with fabrics.


This is fun.  That's all I have to say.

Plus, this may or may not be for someone who may or may not be interested in chickens/roosters.  I'm just sayin'.  And if you know who you are, pretend you were never here...

I've had a few people ask if there is a template for this rooster.  Unfortunately I did not design this cute little guy (or girl - not sure which it is).  I wish I could say I did, but I actually found the pattern in a book called "Quilts for All Seasons...and Some for No Reason" by Sandy Klop for American Jane.  The pattern is called Chickens, Cherries and Checks.  I'm having so much fun making it and it's coming along really well.  Wish I could show you more, but it's kind of a surprise for a little sister of mine.  O.K.  so I'm not very good at keeping secrets. .. Sorry!

Hi Amber, I'm blog hopping, and found you on Pokey's blog. Love this rooster! Is there a tutorial or template available, or did you just make it up yourself? (I wish I was so creative!!)

This is so neat. I have hens and roosters in my kitchen. Just started a quilt with heat and bond. It is fun.
