Cock-A-Doodle-Doo



I have been waiting for the summer issue of 
to come out before I blogged much more about the wall hanging I made for my niece for Christmas. It is featured in the  magazine.

Each of the nine large hexagons has a rooster button hence the name Cock-a-doodle-doo.  I added the center hexagon of yellow velvet with French knots to each for continuity. 










Smaller Hexagons



  

the back

Pipping, white rickrack trim, and beading around the front edges.   
All the green beads and yellow thread were applied with a Tambour hook. (The white organza had the design of white threads on it and I outlined them in the yellow.)

The quilt is in its forever home and is well loved!

  7. Of course that quilt will be well loved in the new home - it's too special not to be! I love what you did with a quilt that was nearing the end of life - too bad there aren't more people willing to undertake doing the same thing.
