Chicken Quilt Finish

Finished my little Chicken quilt today

Material: Leftover scraps from other projects most notably the chicken print I bought in 2006/2007. This is the last of the chicken print and as you can see I was not able to fussy-cut the chickens anymore but just had to make do with what was left over.
The sunflower print was bought on impulse some years ago and this turned out just the right project for it. Fitted the little country quilt perfectly in colour and theme.
Size: 39" x 45"
Quilting: Grid design over the center of the quilt, decorative stitch in the sashing, wishbone design in the inner red border and a meander with variegated thread in the outer border
Threads: Aurifil 40/2 for the grid, decorative stitch and the meander in the border. The wishbone design was quilted with red Aurifil 50/2.

Very happy with this...did not have to buy anything new for this! Managed to use up pieces of batting by joining them with some batting tape and also pieced the backing together using horizontal strips of green, sunflower and yellow fabric.
