Black Tie Boogie Blog Hop

As soon as I saw this cute button I just had to join in.  Many thanks to our inspirational leader Mdm Samm and our head cheerleader Vickie for this very interesting twist on something fowl.

And I get to share this day with these lovely ladies:



Meet Elvis - the King of the Kool Koop.  This is a log cabin block with some alterations to make some interestingly fowl characters.  But someone has to rule the roost and I wanted a hip rooster - a little on the dark side.  Those bad boys 'dont cha ya know' - they attract all kinds of girls.  Want to meet the girls?



Ah, the meek and timid sort.  The young and prim, but so attracted.



The spikey hair - an attention getter.  Who will be Elvis' favorite girl.



The more mature chick.  The bee-hive hair-do and stars in her eyes.



Lol - she looks a bit angry, but there is always that skeptical one.


My, this one really is making quite the statement - or a little bit twittered.


A bit of a flirt this one with the bright red hair and wink of an eye.



But Elvis' knows he better keep his ladies happy if he wants to keep them home on the farm or off to the big city they will roam. 



So he made his chicks this Kondo Koop to keep them all kluckingly happy.

Now I know this wallhanging looks complete - with a cockle-doodle-do, but I would like to add name tags (cross stitch on Aida with a burlap backing) to each of the clucky ladies (and Elvis) - so I need your help.............



To win four half yards of "Country Touch' by Wilmington Fabrics, give me a name for at least one of Elvis' ladies.  Comments will be left open until midnight (EST) Nov 29  and winner announced the next day.  I will contact the winner, so be sure I have a way of reaching you.  I do respond to all my comments, so if you don't get a reply back, check your settings as you are a 'no-reply commentor'.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. What a cute idea for a log cabin block! The ladies all have such different personalities. I think Maxine, Cynthia, Edith, Evelyn, Trina and Jolene would be perfect names for the ladies.

  3. I love your Kool Koop! Poor Elvis, sew many chicks to keep in line, LOL! Lucy for the red haired one. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Oh are these ever cute! I love them all. I think the yellow one should be named Goldie since she is made of those wonderful colors. These really are cute. We have chickens and you have made me want to make some blocks for ours. We have names for our "girls". Our favorite is Calamity because she is really soft and has a cute personality. She likes to look at you with one eye like what are you doing? Did you make these up? Would love to know how you did them. Thanks for sharing- K-

  5. There's definitely a Gladys in that coop :)

  6. Love your wallhanging! And if you are going to have Elvis I think you should probably have a Priscilla - she would have to be the one with the beehive hairdo! Maybe a Goldie, Pinkie, of course Red. I'm drawing a blank of the other two, but I'm sure you will come up with some terrific names for all of your wonderful hens!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I think there would be a Ginger in there (red head) and Trixie should be "twittered" Henrietta would be "oh so prim" and I also think Elvis would have a girl in the jungle room called "Lola "... his favourite.
    Oh such FuN! :)

  8. I would never have come to the idea of sewing chicks with log cabin, this is GREAT!!! I love the different blocks you did!!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. yes you shine in black tie boogie..even your star features look they belong to a coop…totally boogie..
    log cabin chicks…brilliant idea

  10. I would name the "twittered" chick TEENA--short for TEENAGER. Elvis sure collected a lot of twittered fans.

  11. No need to enter me in the giveaway. I just wanted to say that your girls are sew very cute. What a wonderful block idea.

    ReplyDelete
  12. One of them has to ba a Grace, don't you think? Awesome wallhanging! Such a clever way to use log cabin blocks. I esp. like the farmer's field block.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The spikey hair - an attention getter. Who will be Elvis' favorite girl has to be Ann-Margret as we all know she was truly his favored girl.

    Lol - she looks a bit angry, but there is always that skeptical one has to be Christina - she did throw her drink in Elvis's face, you know.

    A bit of a flirt this one with the bright red hair and wink of an eye has to be called Lucy.. Lucy and Ricky were such sweethearts that Elvis has to love her too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would name the more mature chick Isabella. Thanks.

  15. Love the whole chicken community and the different personalities. It's already been said, but Pricilla was the first name that came to my mind. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Can't help you with the names. Had a hard enough time naming my 3 daughters. But those chicks have such personality! The one with the twisted triangle is my favorite. Such a Twisted Sista to be sure!

    ReplyDelete
  17. What a super cute quilt! You must name one of these lovely ladies "Susie" in honor of Elvis' Susie in the moving "Loving You". Elvis will like that!

    ReplyDelete
  18. The lovely spikey haired beauty is none other than Rusty - the star from Viva Las Vegas!

    Your ladies are quite adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  19. The Angry one has to be Matilda! She looks just like my Ameraucana! Did you know they lay blue-green eggs?

    This is very original, and oh so cute.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. What a wonderful quilt. Love all of the chicks and Elvis too. The names that come to mind are Ava, Sophia, and Gina.

    ReplyDelete
  51. One at least must be called Elvira

    ReplyDelete
  52. One has to be 'Ann' like in Ann Margaret. Another needs to be 'Priscilla'. What a cute quilt! I love how you did the blocks.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  60. I think Ann-Margaret would be a great name...his leading lady in Viva Las Vegas. Your quilt is so adorable - clever way to use log cabin blocks. Thank you for sharing! anglanouette at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  61. Elvira, was the first name that came to mind. I am thinking one should be Ethel and one Lucy. I think the mature one should be Maude.

    ReplyDelete
  62. awww, love the chickens! they're perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Your quilt is gorgeous Sharon. You could call the young and prim one Primrose.

    ReplyDelete
  64. You are sew very clever with your Chicken Koop and Elvis ruling his Roost. One chick's name is Saucy! Thank you for Black Tie Boogie hopping. Creative Stitching Bliss...

    ReplyDelete
  65. My first thought was that you cannot have an Elvis without a Pricilla, it wouldn't be right. The young chick should probably be Lisa Marie!

    Sharon your work is wonderful as alswys...how do you come up with such great ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Such fun blocks. I like Dolores and Eulalie. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Your gals have such personality! I'm thinking, Cora-skeptical, Mildred-mature, Marge-bee hive, Cory-flirt, Emily-innocent. Fun project. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  68. This is just fab! The flirt is cute!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  70. How about Nancy?? They are all cute.

  71. Very cute chicks. I would name one Lonesome after the song, Are you lonesome tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  72. From top to bottom - Rebecca, Pippi and Bea, then Madge, Josie, and Pinky Tuscadero (she's Elvis's main squeeze!) Such a cute quilt!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I absolutely think one of your 'ladies' should be Elvira - that's a perfect 'country' name and it's memorialized in song, too. Great quilt and I think the Kondo Koop was quite the right touch! Thanks for such a fun blog post.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Oh Sharon, the King and his Kondo Koop -hilarious. You must have been smiling the whole time you worked on this. I know Lucille Ball wasn't one of his girls, but I can sure see her in that winking red head.
    Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Here is my take on the Chicks!! Which I love by the way.

    Lucy- red hair and wink
    Ann- tattered look
    Lisa- angry
    Momma- Mature chick
    Pricilla- Spike Hair
    Goldie- Young and prim

    ReplyDelete
  76. Beautiful quilt! One of them just has to be named Priscilla.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Oh I see Janarama beat me to it , I was going to say Priscilla , how about Eva , great fun little quilt !!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I think I would name one Twitter because they are alway chirping away just like everyone does on Twitter.

    ReplyDelete
  79. One should be Priscilla for sure. Also Wynona, Reba and Ruby

    ReplyDelete
  80. We love all those log cabin chickens - and Elvis for sure should have a Delilah in his chicken coop. They are fantastic

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love your chicken blocks! I have a potholder like that and I've always thought those blocks would make a cute quilt! :0)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Very creative chicks. You did an awesome job. The one winking looks sneaky and maybe you can call her Mdm Zen. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

    ReplyDelete
  83. What super cute logcabin blocks Sharon!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Such an amazing quilt, thanks for sharing it. I think your 'little bit twittered' girl is called Patsy, and your redhead is called Ruby. They just look that way to me. Thanks for a kind giveaway too.

  85. Such cute chickens! I think Scarlett would be a good name for one of the Chicks.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I think one of them, maybe the spikey haired one, should be Rosie.

    ReplyDelete
  87. You are one talented chick yourself! There should be a Camilla in the flock :)
    Thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I love it. What a wonderful idea! Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I think the flirt will have to be called Priscilla.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Sharon i love all your chicks. That is such a cute idea.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I love your log cabin chicks! I think one of them is called Myrtle.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Well of course there has to be a Priscilla, and I think the spiky one looks like a Spice.
    Matilda is a great name for a mature female.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love this quilt. It is so clever the way you gave each of Elvis's ladies a different personality. I think the mature one should be Henrietta, the skeptical chick looks like Eulalie, then of course there is Gertie who is always a bit twittered. That spikey haired beauty is definitely Hattie. The red headed flirt must be Miss Scarlett. Sweet Sue isn't really shy and timid. I'd keep my eye on her.
    Your Kondo Koop is so much fun, it has been the highlight of my day.

    ReplyDelete
  94. LOL - very cute story for your wonderful project. I love the colors and what a cute idea for a log cabin square.

    As for the names: Meek and timid looks like Ms. Sarah; Spikey hair looks like Ms. Pecks; More mature looks like Ms. Hennie; a bit angry could be called Ms. Claws; twittered looks like Ms. Tweet; flirty could be Ms. Gaggle

    Have a wonderful and joy filled holiday season.

  95. I am so incredibly late getting around for this hop---on deadline, 3 must get done soon items---but now that I am on the binding I hope to check in on all of you!

    LOVE the wall hanging. Looks like you will have plenty of options to chose from name-wise.
