A blast from the past! Had these blocks and some scraps in a bag. The center of the blocks are red-work chickens...I went through a major "chicken-phase" when we lived on our farm from 1991-1998 and maybe a bit beyond that, too. Anyway, we live on a lake now and the chickens just don't fit it, but I feel the need to finish this! Used some of the scraps to finish around the center block, got them all put together and now need to add some borders. I have NO idea what I will do with it once it is finished- maybe I could do an on-line "auction"? The piecing around the chickens is paper-pieced. The Pattern is "Redwork Chickens" by DuAnn's Designs, Eagle ID (copyright 1999) I made this smaller than the original- it has 12 blocks- I only did 5.
