Day 2 of Black tie Boogie with Red Rooster Fabrics, Radical Roosters and Bird Brain Designs as our Sponsors...

sneak peak of something very FRESH! 

We welcome to DAY 2 of our  FOWL hop…
Yes the one time when we will be able to create anything FOWL
and we will be up at the crack of dawn to prove it…

So if you are new here,  a big warm embrace….
for those who have been with us for a very long time…YOU so MATTER to us…Thank YOU.

We are a blog hop blog…we are the largest
 universal quilting bee in the world….Each month we have 2 blog hops, different themes.
with many sponsors. Everyone is welcomed, anyone can join, whether
you are new to sewing and quilting or even if you are really good…
WE celebrate sewers, stitchers, embroiders, doll makers and yes quilters alike…

Each month we invite you to join us for the next blog hop that will
commence 2 months ahead of our calendar year. WE do this so you
will have plenty of time to get your project completed. 

WE will be announcing our next NEW YEAR blog hops reallllll soon! 

 I can't tell you when I became absorbed with roosters..
maybe it was when I met with some of the wonderful 
intelligent, funny people at RED ROOSTER FABRICS.
Yep, maybe it was then.

It was very hard to hide my excitement these past few months
working with this collection…

I will tell you now, that other woman doesn't have a chance…
WE all know she is rising before the sun comes out
since she retired…she has kept me on my toes, let me tell you ….

But this time…wellllll I am just saying…wink…

OHHH my, both that other lady and I 
have someone else we have been worried about 

has  LIVE roosters on her ranch..
how will we be able to out do her…???

I am telling you, we are feeling the pressure..
Vickie is brilliant when it comes to impressing us all here,
we are not surprised at how well she has been cheering us all on,
perhaps she may have been a tad too busy to get too creative wink.
One of the reasons why we wanted her to cheer this hop..
giggling here…

YOU will love that we added more days
so we could shorten up our list of hops each day..
we are hearing you …

So today, we celebrate these ladies
with all the warmth we can muster…
Be sure to cheer them on…your comments mean so much to them..! 

 Black Tie  Wall of FAME

Now is he strutting or what…wait till you see where she got the image
and the uncanny resemblance…brilliant boogie going on here! 

and most Creative Chick Maker…

and can you believe how cute, imaginative, creative this quilt is..
well you would believe it if you knew the artiste…
she is sooooo CHICK! 

We have delightful sponsors..
of course RED Rooster who really was the spark
that gets us up so early each morning…( ok, maybe that is just me) 
It just would not be the same without you…
Thank you…feathers a flying with excitement….! 

WE also have Patterns to share from Radical Rooster

From the first time I saw these, I have been pecking at what or all I should make first..
She is amazing with her details .....

And on its way, Bird Brain Designs wanted to be part of this too..
( as soon as her package arrives I will take photos) 

JOIN our FLOCK, we will be 

 celebrating FOWL each day until

Nov 29th!

  10. Another great day quilty day!

  11. What fun, I was never much for quilts or pictures of chickens, but i have come to like them. ANd when I see the wonderful projects that have been presented in the hop, I like them even more! LOve that fuzzy looking chicken.

  12. More fun projects. We had a challenge where wen sent each other, pieces of fabric, embellishments, buttons etc, then had to design a quilt using all the items. One piece was a chicken panel, got stuck with some things but I finally figured it out and made a fun quilt.


  13. Oh everyone is really pulling out all the stops for this hop! They are all so cute!

  14. More awesome chickens today!!! My favorite the fuzzy proud chicken that you have picked today. I am working on my chickens today and it is so fun to play with them.

  16. Todays chickens were fantastic!

  17. Love the chicken with the hen house! We're thinking of getting some... we can have eight chickens in our back yard here in town. I like the idea more and more.

  18. Great showing today! I absolutely love Robins! That made me smile big time and so did her real rooster! he is so purtyyy!

  19. Great picks for today. Really love the hexie quilt!

  20. I love both of today's top picks. How clever are some people!

  21. Wow! these hens, chicks and rooster fabrics and projects are so inspiring. I wish I had the time and fabric to join the hop.

  22. Thanks for putting me on the wall of fame!! You know, chickens were never my favorite to decorate with but the projects these women are coming up with in this hop are changing my feelings on that!! Some of these things are too cute for words. Thanks for helping me to finish at least one Christmas present!!!

  23. Both of those chicks have something to crow about...

  24. I have to agree with today's top picks. Can't wait to see what's on for tomorrow.

  25. The whole "Blog Hoppin'" caught my eye and so I entered here. I am a total newbie neophyte to quilting. Making my very own first quilt as we blog. You gals are woonnnderful. So much eye candy and I've only seen this one page.

    Here's looking forward to the day when I'm good enough to come out and play (Blog Hop) with you.

    Meanwhile, thank you for the fun, sharing, and sewraderie.



  26. Oh my goodness I just want to egg-nap that applique quilt! That is just amazing!

  27. I had so much fun and learned a lot on day one. Can not wait to start day 2!

  28. that is one unusual chicken and clever of the maker to replicate him in cloth. Debby's piece was really cute too.


You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
