Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!
I’m still in the mood for Spring, so I thought we’d continue with that theme and share a fun, sweet pattern designed as a Mother’s Day freebie some years ago.
Sitting Hen is 5″ paper pieced, and can be easily enlarged using this tutorial.
Get this free pattern on Craftsy
Remember the sweet chick from the Spring post a couple of weeks ago? Enlarge Sitting Hen to 10″ (link below) and pair with Pecking Check for this sweet Mini.

April is my birthday month and you’re invited help me celebrate by participating in the 3rd Annual Fat Quarter Lotto. It’s super easy – send up to four fat quarters, I’ll draw a winner* “live” on Talk to Me Tuesday on April 25.
It’s free to play. I am self-disqualified from playing. This is my way to say Thank You for another fun year of sharing!
*1 winner per 50 fat quarters!
All entries must be received by April 24, 2017.
