Chicken Challenge

9:00-4:00

Chickens have often found their way into the quilt world. Small wonder, given the astonishing variety of plumage in chicken breeds. Among the most memorable poultry quilts are the charming chickens and roosters created by Ruth McDowell (www.ruthbmcdowell.com). In this class, you will select from several patterns to create your chicken wall hanging. A brief discussion introduces the methods and techniques of freezer paper templates. You will then prepare a freezer paper template for your chicken pattern and begin the process of selecting fabrics for your design. We will also discuss sewing methods and the order to complete your wall hanging
