Paper Pieced Chickie

I have been wanting to learn to paper piece with the quilting but have been too 'chick'en to try it on my own. But today I was beyond bored. So I went on youtube and found some tutorials. Then I found a free pattern online for this cute chick. And next...well, I just decided to go with it. The worst case scenerio is I'd waste a few scraps of fabric, right? Here's my final result:



I did make a few boo-boos. But for a first time experience I'm thrilled with it. For the real thing you are supposed to embroider the eye and the legs...I settled for a Sharpie marker. :-)

Hey, that's awesome Jane !!!

I STILL haven't got to my quilt I am making for the First Spawn. I might ensure it is done for her 21st.

Since he matches your bed quilt for your room you can insert him into the backing of your quilt and put information about the quilt on him. Like date and signature and stuff!
