the first finished project of the year

                                                         My Four Seasons Chicken Quilt

is replacing the "Winter House" quilt on my display wall in the dining room and brings a long awaited sunshine to our house.
The "Winter House" is going back to my work room to be finished.
This past week the nature managed to throw at us all sorts; rain, wind, sleet, snow, frost....
But today, although very cold, the sun is out and so I managed to take a picture outside, and actually had to wait for a small cloud to be able to do it.
I could not decide on the binding, but eventually I found this lovely Faffe Fassett fabric in my stash.
I think most of you will understand when I say that it is one of those fabrics you don't want to cut into, but it has been in my stash for a long time and I think the colours really compliment the quilt. And there is lots of this lovely fabric still left.
I love when I am at this point, stitching the binding on a new quilt; so satisfying - I have done it again!
Do you feel the same way?

I really enjoyed making this quilt, I specially had a great fun with the tail feathers.
This quilt again was a good practise in needleturn applique and is also hand quilted.

The pattern comes from The Running Chicken Quilt Company .
