Chicken Challenge Chickens have often found their way into the quilt world -- small wonder given the astonishing variety of plumage in chicken breeds. Among the most memorable poultry quilts are the charming chickens and roosters (and turkeys and ducks) created by Ruth McDowell ( Join us in poultry piecing to celebrate these barnyard wonders! In this class, you will select from several patterns to create your chicken wallhanging. You will select one of the chicken patterns, prepare a freezer paper template and then begin the process of selecting fabrics for your design. We will also discuss sewing methods and sewing order to complete your wallhanging.
