More Mini Wall Quilts

Chickens for the kitchen wall , and a little blue quilt, too.  The cross stitch picture 
I made probably almost 30 years ago.  I collect little colored chicken salt cellars, 
they are in a little case to the left. 
And, in the living room more minis. I felt I needed something over 
the Thomas Kinkade picture, so I made the one in the picture this morning
A bit more clutter, and more busy, but they make me happy. 
I'm also adding this to Sewcanshe's Show off Saturday.

Three Minis

This one was my version of the tree that was on  I wanted to use Fairy Frost, and I just had short pieces.  I've made 3 mini's in the last few days.

I already blogged about this one, but I wanted to see the 3 together.

I made the first chicken quilt for one of my grandsons and his wife.  At the same time, 
I made 2 of each block so that I could make 1 for myself also.  

I'm also showing the 3 backs.  This is the second chicken quilt.  The fabric hides the quilting almost completely.

This is what you get when you use white in the bobbin on a red backing.  Also, it didn't help that my sewing machine needed cleaning and my feed dogs had quite a bit of lint gathered around them.

This is my favorite.  The quilting shows, but doesn't look so showing of each bad stitch.

Chicken Wallhanging

I have been busy with wallets, key fobs and busy bags and it was time for a change of pace. I have several quilts that I could be working on but....  last weekend I had the family over for dinner and my granddaughter-in-law who I thought didn’t like quilts very much was admiring my wall hangings (courtesy mostly of SewCanShe). She decorates in roosters, and she and my grandson have what they call their “C” wall.  This isn’t roosters, but it is poultry, and their “C wall is after their last name , so I hoped they’d like this. She saw it on Instagram, and they do   I’m delivering it this morning.   I believe I saw this first on SewCanShe, which referred to Quilty LoveQuilty Love and then to the chicken tutorial at Sew Inspired.Sew Inspired.  
    I’m sharing this today on SewCanShe’s Show off Saturday.  I’m doing this on my iPad, so it’s a little strange, I normally use my computer.Show off Saturday

38, 39, 40 Necessary Clutch Wallets

Looks like this one needs some pressing.

Hmmm, 38, 39, 40.  What happened to 33, 34, 35, 36 and 37.  I made them, and I guess eventually, I'll find the pictures.

The Rest of 17 Through 32

I think this is the rest of the wallets so far.  
For the Betty Boop NCW, I had enough fabric, so I made a bag to go with it.   It's kind of busy, but in my area, it was the only Betty Boop fabric that I could find.
Inside, I added a couple of different polka dots, and some black and gold (see strap) to give it a little variety.  My love of scrappy quilting seems to carry over into my other sewing.

NCW 17 Through 32

And here are most of 17 through 32.  A few my daughter photographed, and I don't have those.
I'm in the process of doing a group of 10 wallets now, and will post the last 8 soon.  The first two are the ones at the bottom of this post.
