Quilt Week- Post #7

This is the first year I participated in the block contest for the show.  When I saw the fabrics included I really didn't know what to do with them for a while, but I knew I wanted to applique.  I ended up making a fanciful house block adding just two other fabrics (the background and the tree fabric). 

This chicken was my very favorite.

To close, here's a photo of a quilt in the show that was a block winner of 10 years ago, I think.  These are beautiful blocks.
