Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

To  come to PJ's house!
Little Rooster, a gift 

Tuesday night is my Husband's night out to shoot clay targets at the Conservation Club.  It is also my night to go downstairs into my sewing room and create some fun. I made up four place mats to put on the breakfast room table to cheer it up. I'm using some of my scrap fabric left over from the quilt blocks that I've been working on since I've been on sick leave. 
Just knowing that soon, I will have to go back to work - puts a little fire under my seat to hurry up and make a few things with this precious time I have left. It's been only a week since I've been able to go down into the basement to the sewing room .

This color is my favorite!
I thought chickens would look cute at breakfast time, we can look out of the huge picture window and watch our real chickens scurry about and pecking for food this coming spring.

Four place mats to go around the table.
This design was so simple. A cute tea cozy in a smaller version would look cute, maybe some egg or chick coasters, too?
                        I better get crackin'!!

Be happy and Quilt!


  1. These are really cute! Did you design them yourself?

  2. I made my sister a set of placemats like these from a pattern back in 1983. I made these from memory, just tweaked them a bit with yo-yo and button eyes.
