I know what you are thinking. What do these chicken have to do with quilting? Like many of you chickens are my inspiration, my muse, and the back up singers for the quilt, Chicken Music.
Did you ever have a chicken phase? For a long time chickens were the theme of many of my quilts. They became so familiar, I could free-cut a chicken in any pose: nesting, dancing, singing. Making chicken quilt after chicken quilt is called "working in a series".
Alas, my chicken themed quilts are now a thing of the past. You could say they have gone home to roost.
