This is the sixth quilt for AAQI (Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative) that I've made. A couple of years ago I designed several chicken blocks to make a large quilt, but after I drew out the blocks and made a couple I decided that I'm not into chickens that much.
Lo and behold, I attended a couple of quilt shows and there was at least one chicken quilt at each show. Then I discovered that one of the larger fabric houses has really cute chicken fabrics available. So I guess I was on to something.
What's Kickin' Chicken?
While cleaning and moving things around the studio, I discovered my drawings. I chose my favorite to turn into a small quilt for AAQI, added some country fabric from mom's stash and had a blast working on it. I wouldn't purchase this quilt for myself, but I'm hopeful someone will appreciate it enough to spend a few dollars on it.
