I really enjoyed participating in the Year of the Rooster Challenge sponsored by Two Thimbles Quilt Shop. The challenge was to interpret the theme, no smaller than 10" x 14" and no larger than 24" x 24", and to use the red fabric in a recognizable amount on the front.
I'm calling mine Retro Roosters. It's 15" x 18". Can you tell I was influenced by the Gypsy Wife style?? Mainly strips and vintage fabrics :) The rooster print in the middle is 57 years old. A friend of my grandmother's gave me a box of fabric samples when I was in high school and that was one of them. No, I didn't piece the checkerboard. I found that fabric in Lancaster many years ago.
More vintage on the back. Thank you, Wendy! The green roosters are very happy in their new home :)
The label is another fabric sample from years ago :) I'm linking up with Lori at Humble Quilts so hop on over to see more.
Today is our granddaughter's 16th birthday so I made her a "money cake." She'll get it tomorrow :)
