A month ago, my dear SIL bought 3 rescue hens. She has wanted some for years and has finally pecked her hubby into agreement! Meet Mabel, Gertrude and Hilda:
They are adorable, sis loved them immediately, and they've already produced a few eggs. I wanted to make her a little Christmas quilty gift so, of course, it had to be hen-themed. This bundle caught my eye on eBay so I just had to buy it:
There was no selvage so I went back to the ebay listing and it only described it as - midnight blue hen house fabric - so I Googled that and it is made by Westfalenstoffe, who I admit I've never heard of. It says it's organic fabric sourced from Egypt and Pakistan ... never used organic fabric before - seems very fitting.
I'm going to make her another charm square bag (her choice) from this fabby tutorial by Missouri Star Quilting. This will be her 'winter bag' - this was her summer birthday bag (which she really liked):
