Hi Deonn
Those chickens are so adorable. I love the yellow one with the big flower on the side and of course the little chirp.

Thanks Deonn these are so cute. I love the red and pink chicks! I have made one of these (not realizing this was your pattern but since gave you the credit :D). I found on it the quilting board.

Those are super cute Deonn. I love them all but the top two; the brownish one and then the one to its left are my favorites. And I LOVE the little secret/bonus one. Too cute.

Thank you.

I have made a pincushion in the past but it was years ago and I have no picture nor that pincushion any longer.

These are way too cute! I'm liking the brown dotty one. If I win, I'm going to be giving a couple to my friend who has chickens. For real. She keeps chickens! And, I plan to have chickens whenever we finally have a place to call our own. :-)

Anyway, thank you for a chance to win!

I like them all, but the polka dot one would go great with my little log cabin chicken pincushion. Don't have a picture-I didn't make it either, someone else did.

Hi! Yes, yes, yes, I am a follower. LOVE your blog.

LJ said...

No, I haven't made a chicken pincushion - in fact, I haven't made a pincushion since I was in Girl Scouts (60!! years ago). It was red with some red tulle gathered up and placed around it; it was a gift made for mom. :)

Your Foul Fowl was well done though he looks too mean to sit beside me!! Now, the bunny was really cute; loved his ears.

Hen parties are so much fun even if it's just watching a chick flick together - get that, chick flick!!!

Snoodles said...

I'm so happy to be following you! And the chicks, too, of course. But I have to be careful not to step on them....hmmm, gotta get some feed. LOL

Snoodles said...

They are all so cute! Love the teeny one, too! I can't decide which one I love the most!

Jan said...

OK, so has anyone told you your foul fowl looks like an angry bird from the game? Funny!
I like the pink and brown chick.

No, I have never made a chicken pincushion but I do have a thing about decorating with chickens and roosters in my home so maybe I'll be a lucky winner.. My favorite is the pink/brown circle (egg looking) chickie..

Hello! I am a follower.

Your chickens are so darn cute! It's very hard to pick one I like the best, but to follow instructions I'll pick the brown polka dot one. Your tutorial has lots of super ones, too. So fun!

I love the chicken with the "back comb".Too cute.

mary mahoo said...

I'm a new follower, and not just because of your chicklets.I've just completed my first "all by me" binding on a special project; from cutting to binding the blanket, thanks to your wonderful tutorials on Cutting Corners College. Thanks Deonn! (It came out great btw)

I love the "dotty" chicken. Great tutorial.

These are too cute! I have been looking for a tutorial for these for longer than I want to admit. (I know they aren't hard, but something eluded me.) My favorites are the black and white ones from the tutorial. Or the little blue one there too. Thanks for putting this up!

Robin said...

Glad I found your site. I'll definitely be following from now on!

Quilting_Chris said...

These little chicks are so darling. I have one using Hawaiian fabrics in the traditional log cabin, that I love. Now with your tutorial I can have more. Love the little pink one with the stripes, soo cute.

Cathy said...

Oh My Goodness these are the absolute cutest things I have seen in a long time
I love love love them
My fav is the little chick and I love all of the others as well maybe the black and white check
So darling - I must try to make one, as I have never make a pincushion before
Thanks so for the opportunity
Cheers
Cathy

Your gals are so cute, I may get started on a flock of my own. My special favorites are the polka dotted hen and her stripedy friend.

Thanks for the giveaway, and for a great tutorial.
