Little Chicken Feather

"Little Chicken Feather" is a Red Brolly Design from a book of the same name.  It has lots of cute patterns for nursery quilts and other goodies.

My little grandson was born on 19 June - what a wonderful few months - two healthy, beautiful babies.  He is a little sweetheart (even though he doesn't like sleeping very much).

The quilt top has been mostly finished for a few months - I just needed to stitch his name etc after he arrived.  Early ast week I pin-basted the quilt


and Friday night decided it was time to get it quilted


Saturday morning I sewed on the binding and stitched it down at stitching with the girls that afternoon.



A few months ago I decided to make this quilt because Smudgie's Mum and Dad's petnames for each other is "Chicken".  Had a lovely time with the family yesterday for Michael's birthday - of course little Smudgie, who doesn't like to sleep, slept the whole time and I had lots of time to play with ChaCha.

Other sewing last week was putting the Thimble Blossoms Scrappy Sampler Sewalong quilt top together.


I've really enjoyed making all these blocks and am looking forward to starting Piccadilly Circus soon.

Short work week for me - having Wed/Thurs/Fri off.  Going to see "Les Miserables" on Wednesday night.  Pretty excited about that.  Then a few days at home catching up on a few jobs and sewing, and going to see a local production of "Mary Poppins" on Saturday night.
