Little Chicks

Posted on: March 8th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

I have not been doing much in the sewing room the last two days.  But I did get those dishes done!  Guess I do have to get some housework done between projects….

Today I got out what may be considered a UFO.  It was only waiting for some eyes….  I made this little quilt before winter – quilted and bound even.  So it is really a weird UFO.  The only thing unfinished were the little chicks eyes.

I was looking for mini buttons to sew on, but after finding some a month or so ago, I was still hesitant to use them.  I mean this is just the right size for a baby play mat.  And babies and buttons don’t go together – not even cute little mini buttons.

Sew I got out the embroidery thread and satin stitched some little eyes on those chicks – hiding the knots just like you would thread ends while quilting.  And I took off the hen’s crazy looking eye and satin stitched one on for her, too.

But I did have two leftover chick blocks and two feather blocks.  I had the fabric pieces fused on the blocks, but had not yet satin stitched around the pieces.  I did that this afternoon.  And then I made myself happy by sewing those little mini buttons onto those two chicks.

And I am making a little place mat from the two leftover chicks and feather blocks….
I have to admit that I do love those little mini buttons.  Aren’t these chicks cute?
