Chubby Chicks

Cute cute cute!  I just love this pattern and hopefully someday I’ll be able to show my version of it – my chicks are fused down and my pinwheels are cut.  Until then, enjoy Martha’s Chubby Chicks.  This is the second (or maybe third) one of these I have quilted and I have fun finding ways to frame the chicks and to travel the pinwheel blocks without a lot of stops and starts.  Usually by halfway through the quilt top I have it all figured out.

So Fine thread by Superior on the top – white and a limy avocado green.  Bottom Line prewounds by Superior in the bobbin – all in lime green.  Great tension again.

The border has my favorite fun whimsical treatment of wiggly piano keys and I carried the wiggly straight line (you know what I mean) into the green pinwheels and flying geese.
