The local fall fair is taking place this weekend. For years I've been entering quilts into the "homecrafts" competition. Every year I rush around at the last minute to organize my submissions and complain that I'm never going to do it again, until next year comes around and I do it all over again. There are fewer and fewer entries into fall fairs so I have to do my part to keep the local fall fairs alive. This year, the theme of the fair was CHICKENS. Here is my contribution - "Chicken A-La-Carte". The background sky is a hand-dyed fabric and the rest is mostly batiks using fusible raw-edge applique and machine quilted. In case you want to make it, the pattern is from Bigfork Bay Cotton Company, artwork by Debi Hubbs.
