This week I manged to finish my first Urban Chicken quilt top…. I am so excited. I love this modern easy fun pattern.
The Urban Chicken block was designed for the Portland Modern Quilt Guild meetup by Michelle Freedman. You can find my original post and tutorial on making the block here.
When laying the quilt top out I had great fun making the chickens run all around… there really is a sense of silly to this quilt block that I love.
It is also a very forgiving block – wonky triangles, lots of scraps and bold bright colours. You can get away with a few squiffy seams if need be.
This is Urban Chicken number 1 for me. I have another one following close behind in warmer colours, as I set this pattern for my Do.good.stitches bee this month. You have been warned!
