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.
