Year of the Rooster Challenge- 2017


"Stand Tall Chicken" 
Why do Roosters get all the glory? LOL 
This is one challenge quilt I actually like a lot. I was inspired by folk artist Karla Gerard. 
 I used this pretty fabric I got in France for the backing. 
Here is my "rooster" taking shape. 


I am looking forward to seeing the other challenge quilts!

  4. You came up with a very folk art looking rooster. Sort of Sue Spargo looking. I look forward to seeing what other people do with the challenge. I am not always so good at that sort of thing. Looks like you had fun with yours.

  6. Wow--this is a wonderful finish, Lori! It makes me think of some of something from South of the Border. Many of my family members have traveled to Central and South America and have brought back wall hangings in their folk art styles, and this puts me in mind of those. I really love your interpretation of the theme!
