Turkey or Chicken

I hope you all had a lovely and safe Holiday.  Whether it was the traditional turkey or any other choice of meal - hope you indulged to the fullest as that is all part of it.  I enjoyed all the comments and name suggestions for Elvis' chicks for the Kondo Koop.  I am still sorting thru them to pick ones to fit the girls and then to finish this.  I'll announce the winner at the end of this post as I looked up some information for some requests for patterns.


I made my pattern and pdf for a Yahoo group, so it is their property, but I did find these cuties.  Steel Scraps has a tutorial for these tiny chicks in a basket - how cute!!

And Deonn's pattern for chicken pincushions should be explore HERE at QuiltScapes

 And you can find a log cabin layout to change the look at  Quilting Works.

And I saw these on a few Etsy sites as pins and also made 2-sided cabins and stuffed as pincushions.

And then with more searching - I found something very close to mine and may be to your liking.  There is a tutorial found HERE. Of course you can make these up into individual potholders, a few for a runner or wallhanging or go with the whole flock for a conversation quilt.

OK - what you have been waiting for - the winner of the 1/2 yrd bundle:

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.

Thank you all for visiting and for all the great names.  I will be taking a lot of ME time thru the month of December, but I am participating in the Kona Solids Hop in January with a give away.
