Back on the Farm Block 3


Finally I have Block 3 of Back on the Farm quilted. This block is called "Home to Roost".
It is a gorgeous block but was very time consuming with lots of pieces.

First I cut up and made the Rooster. He is magnificant with all his different colours.




Next came the 4 Hens.
After them I made the 3 chicks and the broken egg.



Then came the Windmill.
Lastly, I made up the Coop and ladder and then I could finally piece all the animals onto the background fabric.
All of this took many hours of cutting, piecing and pressing and then many more hours of quilting.

It is a very time consuming quilt but I am so glad that I am making it and having no time frame to have it made in is making it very relaxing to do it.

It is an absolutely beautiful Block and very satisfying to have it finished.
