Quilted Chicken Door Stop

I did it!
My first time ever quilting something.
It's not a quilt but the basics of quilting.

has an awesome video showing how to make a chicken pincushion.
I thought I would use a charm pack and make it bigger for a door stop!

The chicken measures 8 1/2 x 9 inches,
 and weighs 2 1/2 lbs.
She is filled with 3/4's polyester fiber &
the bottom is filled 1/4 of pea rock.
Did I have fun!
I am on a roll now and will be making them for my sisters for Christmas.
I bought all my fabrics at
Primitive Gatherings.
I love their shop here in town!

I always use my rug mug!
No water circles or condensation build up on my table.
I have mug rugs in my ETSY shop!
This is the other side of my hen.
I think I did a pretty good job matching up the seams for the first time (wink,wink).
Look at those darling tail feathers!
For the others I will use a larger "prairie point" under the three.
I am planning on using different methods for the comb.
I can't wait to see what half fabric yoyo's would look like!

Charlie and Sammie (Samantha)
are always there giving me support!
Now off to make some more chickens …
here chickie, chick, chick!

Get yourself a fabric charm pack and makes some!
Hummm … wonder if my chickens would like one in their coop?!
