Feeling Chicken

5 Inch Chick

Free 5″ Pecking Chick Pattern, by Jennifer Ofenstein

Several years ago, I participated in a year-long birthday quilt block swap. At the time, one of my dear friends and fellow designers, Cat Magraith, was collecting chicken-themed blocks. She was also participating in the same swap. I drafted several before deciding which blocks to share with her.

The above pattern, Pecking Chick, never made out of the sketch stage and is being posted for the very first time today! I think he’d be a sweet little chick with a French knot eye and a few seed beads at his feet for pecking!

The first two were made for the swap, and I believe I sent the egg block on to her as well. It’s one block I’m incredibly proud of. Doesn’t it just look like you’re looking in a full nest?

Something Quilty This Way Comes

Something very exciting has been brewing in my mind the last couple of months. Plans are in action! Things are happening! Designers have been contacted! A domain is bought!

What, wait? A domain?

Yes, yes, yes!

Fandom In Stitches is coming.

Fandom In Stitches will be fandom quilters one-stop-site for quilt patterns from a variety of fandoms. Many of the Sewhooked Guest Designers have already signed on to share their awesome fandom quilt patterns. Instead of searching by designer, you’ll be searching by genre or fandom, to make it simple and easy to find what you’re looking for!

How much is this going to cost? Nothing, nada, zilch. Fandom patterns have been and will remain free. All Fandom In Stitches Designers, including myself, donate their patterns free of charge for the love of fandom.  Please see copyright information on Fandom In Stitches for details.
