Tree Birds Blog Hop.... meeeeet Elvis!

Good Morning!  Bright and sunny day for my pet....
Rooster!  Here is Elvis and of course, his ladies!



He has a bright Dresen Plate sunshine for him to crow loudly about the second day of this blog hop!

Thank you to Lana  and of course Madame Samm ....
Here are the other "Hens" waiting for you to visit and share the love
Sew To Peace
Moose Stash Quilting
Buzzing And Bumbling
I Piece 2
Quilt Doodles
Just Let Me Quilt!  And
A Stitch In Time

Elvis, of course, did everything he could to keep all us chickens in line.... LOL!

So, this is basically my design.... I used THIS design by Julie Lynch from Benartex Fabrics, called Jaunty Rooster for Elvis.  Then I used Crown In The Corner blocks to frame the hens.  At first I thought they were roosters, and they were to bring Elvis, the King, his crown!
Elvis is machine applique with rayon thread and blanket stitches in a Quilt As You Go technique.
In the farm yard, dirt and bird seed are scattered around in four patch formation!

I have a neck injury and it took me a few months to get this far.  I do not have any other projects completed, but I have 7 other hen blocks, they might go toward some cushions....

I also paper pieced this hen house.  I was going to fit into a corner, but I think I will make it into a mug mat!.

These items are going to a lady I recently met who loves, loves chickens and roosters!  She has them scattered throughout her home and garden.

Take care, Leslie
