Will it Cock-a-doodle-do??

I am intending to make three quilts for Siblings Together.  I have made one and have bought fabric for a second but not settled on the design yet!


Browsing the flickr threads I put my hand up for some cute fabric from Yvonne for a third quilt - but I was too late!  The lovely Yvonne (found here on Flickr and blogging here with Reene!) offered some other fabric if I wanted it!?


You guessed - I grabbed it and followed her advice on the pattern to use and here is the result so far!








A real chooky quilt top and back!  


The blocks were made using a Moda Farmyard charm pack and some banana yellow fabric strips from Yvonne.  Who'd have thought that chicken and banana went so well together!?  


Then I added some more Banana for a border, followed by some Ruby Red from my stash!  


I have some cooky chooky fabric for the back 










and Yvonne sent some stripes which I will use for the binding!








Just need some more wadding/batting - always seem to be running out - must mean I am getting quilts finished!  Heehee!


So do you think it will cock-a-doodle do?

  9. I think it will pass muster... not mustard though, that would be bad, especially as the carrots on the back must already make the chickens feel nervous ;o)
