What fun to have my block appear in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 6! Follow the blog tour November 5-9, 2012, by clicking on


Inside the issue you can find my latest and last block in the Chicken Trilogy. If you have been following my work through Volumes 2-6 you will notice that the Trilogy was expanded  to five blocks by popular demand. But it’s really over now with the last block, Chicken Surprise.


Previous blog comments suggested all kinds of ways to use these blocks together from placemats for Easter to a wall hanging with all the chicks displaced. So I’ve made a digital wall hanging for you all to see, a sort of Chicken Circle of Life, from the first block Eggplant, to the last, Chicken Surprise.

Good luck!
