Guest #52 Calling all chicks with Deonn to a HEN PARTY!!


Hi, my name is Deonn from Quiltscapes Quilting, and I think I have QUILT FEVER!
(I was going to say "I am a QUILTAHOLIC" but that would involve
some kind of 12-step program...)
The best cure, of course, is quilting with friends, and I am excited (thrilled) to share some quilty/crafty love with you today here on Madame Samm's genius campaign! 
Is she an amazing woman or what?  A force of nature!  So here goes:

I have a thing for chickens. 
I ♥ chickens. They make me smile. 

It began with some "Easter Egg" chickens (Banties) I had when I was a kid.
They were my pets, and laid little blue and green eggs (oh, cute!)

I collect chicken pitchers = kitchen chickens (say that fast three times) haha...!
(WARNING: use for cream or syrup. Or decoration.
Do NOT pour lumpy milk gravy from a small chicken pitcher...
eeeewww.
Ask me how I know this.)


And a few years back, my Grandpa referred to a family girl gathering as a "Hen Party",
so my seven sisters and I adopted the name for our annual get-together. 
We all look forward to leaving husbands/kids at home
to go off and cackle together for a few days each year. 

I also ♥ chickens in quilts.

One of my first quilts stemmed from a chicken block exchange,
where I was to supply "country red" chickens in the trade. 
I showed up with all BRIGHT RED chickens - OOPS! 
So I kept those, made my own red chicken quilt (see above ↑)
and remade more for the exchange. 
Hey!  it was great!  I got two quilts out of it! 
But, I didn't really love applique' (yet).  

So... I tried a bunch of pieced patterns for chickens...
didn't love those either.

Then I figured out a simple stitch & flip chicken,


(small square, right sides together on the corner of a
larger square/rectangle; stitch from point to point;
trim the seam, press toward the corner to make a beak or a comb or feet.)

It made me smile.
Maybe they'll give you a smile, too!

 

 
My goal was to make a quilt for each of my sisters...


Instead, I made quilted bags with one little Hen Party Chick.  Lame, I know.
 
Now my goal is to teach the younger ones to sew, (← fun times) 
then they can make their own! 

Lately I noticed that owls were becoming popular,
(I know, it took me awhile...)
so I made a few adaptations and made a Hoo-ville Chick.... Hmmm.
(Made a pink one and called it a "Hooter" - then donated it for a
Susan G. Komen breast cancer research fundraiser. I ♥ that one)

And, coming up on Hallowe'en around these parts,
wonder what a bat would look like... Hmmm.

Each of my triplet daughters made a baby chick in her favorite color.
See patterns → HERE
I really love those little chicks. OK, I love the quilt too.
What should we name it?  Twirps? Tweets? Chirps? Cheeps? Peeps?
...Triplet Chicklets? (Ha - another fun tongue twister!)
  
Back to the point.  I ♥ chickens. 
And you really need a basketful of them in your sewing room!
So, let's have a Hen Party!!


 Supply List:
Two 3-1/2” to 5” squares fabric for chick body
(cotton, upholstery fabric, pre-quilted fabric, etc.)
Two or Three 3" squares for tail (same or coordinating fabric)
Two or Three red 1-1/4” squares for comb
One yellow/gold 1-1/4” square for beak
About 1/2 cup rice, ground walnut shells, silica sand,
or use polyester fiberfill for stuffing (your choice)

Instructions:
PREPARE comb, beak and tail pieces:
FOLD each square in half to form a triangle.  PRESS.
FOLD in half again and PRESS again.
LAY OUT one of the chick body squares right side up,
and ARRANGE beak and comb pieces as ↓ diagrammed
(folded sides toward the corner, nestle/overlap the comb pieces).   
PIN- or GLUE-baste to secure beak and comb in place.  (I ♥ Jillily's Appli-glue)
( Mdm Samm is giving some away today from Jill)
  
PLACE the other square right sides together over the comb and beak.


Pin in place, then STITCH along the lines indicated, using 1/4” seam allowances.
 Start in the corner opposite the beak and comb.
Leave an opening at the bottom through which
you will be able to turn the chicken right-side out.
Leave the last side OPEN.


LAY OUT tail pieces as you'd like. PIN- or GLUE-baste pieces together.


SANDWICH your tail piece in the remaining open seam of the chicken:



Align the top and bottom seams and center the tail.
This will form the pyramid shape of the chicken.


PIN, then STITCH across that seam. 


TURN your chicken right side out through the opening
(hatch your chick).
STUFF with your choice of filling (rice, silica sand,
ground walnut shells, polyester fiberfill, etc.)

WHIP-STITCH the opening closed.


Sew on some little beads or poke a couple of pins in the right spot for eyes.
This one's for you, Madame Samm!!  ↑

Have fun, make one or make a ton!
Take a picture and share your creations on my new Flikr group:
 Chicken Pincushions!

Happy Sewing!

Ok, I better say something really nice now lol
Well I am all for Chicks, of any kind, small, round,

Can I just cackle  about this IRON for a minute...
Here is my published review...
I meant then I mean it now...I love my IRON.

Hello Reliable, After 37 irons my search is over. First the color, can we talk about that -LOVE ORANGE, ok, features, love that it is heavy but it glides like an egg over butter in a hot iron pan...mmmmm, And can we talk steam...it is power steam, two irons over even linen, wow no wrinkles.. You would think this is a bit much talking about an iron like it was a fine glass of merlot...but really, I have drank many glasses crying over BAD irons in the past...I will raise my glass all 5 feet of me over my head...LOVE THIS IRON... Bye bye Bad IRONS< HElllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllo Reliable... x

  34. I am completely thrilled with this post! First of all because those chickens are just the cutest lil things! Second, because I've been wanting something to try my free-motion quilting on that isn't HUGE. Last time I tried it, the bobbin thread wadded up on the back, and I don't understand why.. so I quit. I need to try again. These are cute enough to make me wanna try! Thank you so much!

  58. I too have great fondness for chickens. Dare I say, I have about 30 chickens of all sorts in my barnyard, plus a few guinea fowl. I try to hide a chicken, of some sort, in every quilt I make. That can be hard at times, but they make it in on the label if no where else. I follow here. Can't wait to make that chicken pincushion! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I actually bought a chicken pincushion not long ago... Now I can add to my flock!:) Thanks Deonn for the wonderful tutorial!! I am a follower of your site now, too. I have found so many wonderful projects here that I will be busy all winter long...Isn't that great?!? Yay!!

  64. I have gone right over and followed you Deonn because anyone who loves chickens has to be smart and creative. :) I made a wonderful rooster quilt last year - I love, love, love it and have it hanging in my dining room. You would want it, trust me. :) A friend gave me one of those little chicken pincushions and I couldn't for the life of me figure out how she made it - now I know! Thanks so much for the great post. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the iron...blessings, marlene

    Honestly? I'm not much into farm animals. Guess that comes from being around some of them as a kid. And now that I'm a city girl, and still occasionally GET to smell hogs (yucko), I'm over being enthralled with farm animals. Well... you asked, right? Thanks for the chance to win! Who would think that anyone would WANT to win an iron!?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Deonn's my sponser, been a follower of hers for quite a while now.

I call it the funny farm!! My profile picture shows my big rooster(he weighs 15 pounds) and one of my hens. I love my chickens! So when I seen that todays post was about chickens I got really happy.

  103. I love those chickens. I have several Scandinavian chickens in my decor thanks to a friend from high school and my grandson loves them. This is such a sweet tute! I may just have to make one as a soft toy for that 2year old....so he doesn't always beg to play with the wooden ones! That is one fantastic iron. I would sure welcome it to my sewing space!

  116. Deonn, what a "clucky" little post!! Your chickens are almost as cute as the ones in my very own hen house. Only MY chickens produce the most delicious fresh brown eggs you've ever tasted. Once you taste fresh eggs you'll never go back to store bought eggs again. I'll be following Deonn just as soon as I finish commenting. May I say ONCE MORE just HOW MUCH MY Heart goes Pitter Pat over that Gorgeous ORANGE Reliable Iron. I have a nice little IRON THRONE made in hopes I win one of these. I'll never care If I win ever again just as long as my name is pulled to WIN the IRON!!!

  149. Call me weird. I have roosters in my kitchen, I think little chickie things are so cute, but I can't handle the birds in real life. Guess I've seen to many yucky pecked hens and dead ones or I don't know what. But they can be beautiful! I'm following Deonn, and you Madame Samm. Everyday is another inspiration! Thanks so much.

  150. Oh. Dreaming of an orange iron! (I'm a follower, of course. :))

  151. I am now a follower of Deonn.
    I visited your blog this morning and I read about your Soldier's Star. Wow, what an honor to have a 6 foot billboard of it hanging on Accuquilt's Headquarters!
    Thanks for doing the pincushion tutorial today. My husband has talked about getting chickens, but we still don't have any. I don't know much about chickens, but I know roosters are noisy. I told him no roosters! I think I would much rather have one of the chickens that you showed us how to make today, than a real live one.

    Thanks to the sponsors of today's giveaway. I am sure everyone would be more than happy to get this iron. I know I would! My iron leaks and is not very good at getting out wrinkles. Madame Samm gave me a tip on irons. She said to use only distilled water in them to prevent the leaking. You can even make your own distilled water by boiling regular tap water. The glue and dots look impressive too. I did a little research on them and they look like they work amazing and are worth a try. I have never worked with any type of adhesive yet, but I am sure I will in the near future. I am really getting quite good at quilting much faster than I ever thought I would. It looks so much harder than it actually is.

    Thanks Madame Samm for having this campaign. I like that you have added those special words at the end encouraging people to spread the love.
    A smile is contagious. Try walking around the grocery store with a smile on your face. You will see that a lot of people start to smile too. I know because I just did this again yesterday.

    I am a Wantobe Quilter and my sponsor is Mary on Lake Pulaski. I am a follower of Sew We Quilt. I would have to say that my favorite type of chickens are hens. They lay eggs and it takes eggs to make cookies. :)

  166. Such a cute post. I am still in shock of 8 daughters in one family! I haven't been a big chicken fan until recently when I inherited my mother's 1930's glass hen and rooster that she gave to her mother and then got them when her mother died (I never knew that grandmother). The glass rooster and hen are so unique and I have never seen any like them. Makes me more aware of the different barnyard birds on the market.

Of course I am going to be a follower of Deonn. How could I not follow a fellow chicken lover? I am already a follower here.
    How about showing some geese in quilts? Or cows? We just got 2 new nurse cows and my grandkids are just fascinated with them.

I still have two ceramic roosters that my hubby's great aunt gave me a long time ago, but pretty much the rest is gone. I might have a few things left, if you would like them Deonn, just get in touch with me at Designs by Debbie and Dixie Too! blog. Now I'm into pine boughs and pinecones! Totally rustic and primitive decor now.

    I am a follower of both SewWEQuilt and Quiltscapes already.

    Anyone looking for a beautiful tree skirt to make for the holidays, check out Deonn's Star Tree Skirt she has on her patterns page. I just saw that today after checking out her triplets' new pattern. It's beautiful (And can I add too that I give her A LOT of credit raising triplets! I had twins and they were enough for me to handle although for six months of that pregnancy the OB and High Risk OB docs both told me I was having triplets. LOL I was relieved to have only twins.)

    Thank you for such a cute little pincushion. And yes, I love chickens but I think you may love them a bit more than I do.
