Our class was all about chickens. Meet Fred.
I'm calling him that, even though the pattern is named Gallus Gallus,
available through Fiddlesticksquiltshop.com. Ann has many other chicken patterns, plus other animals and flowers.
After prepping the pattern, the day was spent auditioning fabrics. Starting with the eye, then the head,
to the tail,
Fred (as I'm calling him at the moment), began to take on a personality.
He appears quite majestic, struttin' his stuff!
Today, I'll work on the background, for which I've chosen pale lavenders, plus the bold print to ground him.
Then comes the sewing. He's just pinned to a foam board, in case I want to change any of the fabrics. I'm sure he'll look a bit different after backgrounds and seams. Come by again to see him finished!
