My Quilt Show Entry

It's called Mardi Gras On The Farm; it's the challenge quilt for the annual quilt show that my guild has in late February. Anyone in the guild could get half yard of two fabrics chosen by the guild leadership: the wild chickens and the checked pattern. The theme was Mardi Gras On The Farm. You could do anything you wanted with the fabric. I added the purple sashing, farmyard scene fabric, the Mardi Gras fabric with masks as the border, fake jewels and feathers. I'm probably going to add some more feathers. At Mardi Gras you can never have too many feathers.

Ohhh I love this one. I love all the color. The roosters aren't exactly my thing but the Mardi Gras is fabulous. You know I love the purple. Maybe you could stitch on some beads too?
