Orange party chick

Since I'm swiftly running out of September, I really buckled down with my orange scraps these last few days.
As long as I had that fabulous fluffy orange print on the cutting table, I did a bit more cutting.

A Jacks and Sixes -


and a cute lil red orange hen.


And once there was one clucker on the table, who should come racing up but this wild girl.


Don't let those staid feathers in her wings fool you.  I'm pretty sure she's covered in ice cubes - probably from some kind of spiked orange punch.  Definitely a party chicken!

And once more with that orange print.  I've got a four patch project in mind to use some of those hundreds of four patches I've been sewing for leader/enders for the last few years.


And for leader/enders for that project, I'm making nine patches for my Burgoyne Surrounded sashing.


Some days it's just all about the itty bitty squares.

Oh my goodness. That is an amazing speedy chicken...so fast her feathers are plastered against her sides.

Your chickens are too, too cute, Gayle! And your fabrics are so perfect, especially the one with feathers.

Nothing makes me happier than itty bitty squares. Except maybe those chickens. They are pretty darn adorable.

Orange is the perfect colour for chicken blocks!

That sweet hen looks like she is going to be steamrolled flat by that crazy one. Maybe the orange color gives her extra energy.
