Quilting the Chickens
The bag for the challenge is all done and I found some backing for the chickens at half price in Fabricland so at last I have started quilting the chickens.
Free Motion Quilting is still not my strength but I keep going at it anyway. Hopefully it will eventually get to the point where I am somewhat satisfied with it. I am lightly quilting the chickens and will do more intensive quilitng on the background so, hopefully, they will pop out a bit. I am going to use a narrow facing on the bottom part and the roof will be totally faced. I am thinking there could be a bit of a problem hanging it because of the way the eaves stick out. If it doesn't hang properly with a sleeve at the top of the roof, I will cut a thin piece of styrofoam to insert behind the facing of the roof. That is the main reason for facing the entire roof.
Now I am starting to think about what to do next. It's always exciting to plan a new project. I think it will be in bright colors like the jungle but that's as far as I have gotten towards a decision yet.
