  2. Tu-Na Quilts says:

    Oh, my this chicken one is cute! But I have but one question; do you ever sleep?

  3. Vanni says:

    Such a great quilt! I like your animal blocks, and there just might be an animal quilt in my near future…

  4. Allison says:

    OMG, Lorna… this is just so stinkin' cute!?! I love all the colorway options that you came up with and those chicks… just don't get me started on those chicks!

  5. The little chicks are so cute gathered around the mama hens! Love this quilt! Can't wait for the new sew along to start :)!

  6. Puppilalla says:

    Another wonderful finish =)

  7. Eeek! This is so cute! I have a friend who keeps chickens…now I think I know what she's getting for Christmas 🙂

  9. Your chicken quilt is so cute. Thanks for the tutorial. Blessings, Gretchen

  10. Those chickens would be adorable in 30s prints! Congratulations on another fabulous pattern, you rock!

  11. I was wondering when chickens would come into the mix – I just love them! I love the body color and the baby chicks scattered all around! Absolutely adore, as usual!

  12. Stephanie says:

    Completely love the chicken ranch … using the cool greens on the hens really makes it!

  13. Jayne says:

    Pretty darn cute! I dont know how you do it! You crank out the cutest patterns ever…Your amazing Lorna!

  14. Love the chicks! Mama hens are sweet, too, but in some of the photos their heads appear to blend into the background, which is a pity.

  15. Laura says:

    Love the chickens! I'm looking forward to the Mod Bear Paw QAL!

  16. You have such a talent for making cute animal designs! Love the chickens.

  17. Jasmine says:

    Your sweet designs continue to inspire me. And I love your signature quilting style. I just tried it with my niece.

  18. Nice chickens!!! Love the chicks too! Very fun quilt!!! It needs eggs on the backing…

  19. I love how fast you went from idea / inspiration to completion! Wow!

  20. Carol S. says:

    Lorna, that chicken quilt is another amazing pattern by you. Love it!

  21. Lara B. says:

    Your Mama Chicken and chickies are so darn cute Lorna! You are a very generous and kind person to whip up the design, the tutorial and then the quilt! It's a winner!

  22. Tish Stemple says:

    This is simply adorable. I want all those little chicks. And wow the bear quilt-a-long snuck up pretty quickly. Where did August go???

  23. What adorable baby chicks!!!

  24. This quilt is absolutely adorable!! I'm a chicken mama and one of our hens hatched chicks for the very first time about a month ago, so I have a special affinity to mama hens and baby chickies! Lovely pattern.

  25. The chickens are too cute!

  26. JanineMarie says:

    It never ceases to amaze me how you can put so much personality into little critters with a bit of body positioning a little square eye. It must be a big challenge to do that and make it look so simple. I wonder if you go through a lot of drafts–and if so, it would be interesting to see the various stages some of these patterns go through before you get to the final pattern. These chickies are adorable.

  27. Paige says:

    Lorna, those hens and chicks are adorable! You are so creative! Thanks for hosting the party!

  28. Those chickens are so cute–love them!!

  29. Zenia Rene says:

    I love Chicken Ranch! Thanks for the block tute too!

  30. Dorothy says:

    Oh my gosh! this is so stinking cute! I raised chickens and they certainly weren't THIS adorable. What a fantastic pattern, you do amazing design work.

  31. I think of all your patterns, my favorites are this hen /chick pattern and the fishy pattern. You have such a way with designing these animal pattns Lorna. They are adorable.
