This is a fun way to use a jelly roll to create a nice throw quilt with some interesting texture. The applique chicken was just for fun.
Very nice, love the chicken
OH MY!!!! I LOVE it! I just made one of these quilts, but didn't think about giving it it's own life!
This quilt is adorable! I went to a weekend retreat this past summer and the 1600 inches quilt is one that was taught and many participants made one. I brought it up to one of my block of the month groups and we plan to pick a day and complete one. I love your addition of the chicken. It really makes for a fun addition. I'll have to add something to mine to perk it up. Thanks for the idea!
This is so cute with the chicken added on. I made a 1600 earlier this year and have yet to get it quilted because I felt it needed something else appliquéd to it to make it come to life. Glad to see I was not alone in my thinking! You've inspired me to pull it out and give it a go again!
I've also seen them done with a large turtle applique (greens and blues) and large coneflowers (pinks and oranges). They are fun quilts.
Love the chicken!
