Simple String and my finished Mama Hen quilt

April sent me a whole whack of 2 l/2" strips from her fabric line!
I thought the beautiful floral in the middle would be a great focal point.
Since it's so pretty, I didn't want to cut it too narrow.
I auditioned the rest of the fabrics, you really can't go wrong with such a great selection!

Here is the finished block, sewn with little stitches onto cardstock.

I'm really looking forward to seeing your finished quilt April :)
My bee month was September 2015.
Here is my Mama Hen quilt close up, pinned and ready to machine quilt.
I used Nedra's hen block and put it in my Farm Girl Vintage "Country Fair" quilt because it matched perfectly.
I replaced it with the aqua hen and the orange/pink star.

Sinta was so kind to make two hens for me, I really appreciated that as I was pressed for time!

I made the quilt for my son and his family.
They have a chicken coup in their backyard :)
Jordan and Kimalee and their two adorable little girls, Reagan and Paisley. 
They are expecting another little girl at the end of February :)
Thanks everyone for helping me with my quilt!

Pin It!
