The Wild Cock

34
So I just finished a super fun project for our basement bar! You may not know this, but the name of our screen printing business is Phantom Chicken... and we do have a thing for the bird.  The chicken is a major theme at our place. When we moved here last year, we put our orange metal roosters up over the bar, and we love them there, but the space still seemed a bit empty.
Then Sam Hunter came out with a new book called Quilt Talk with patterns for the alphabet, and I had an idea.
With some fervor, I went forward with a sign for our basement bar... I had so much fun making these letter blocks! Sam's patterns are awesome and easy to follow.
Putting the letters together was much easier than figuring out the sign around the metal roosters, but once I got it, it went smoothly... of course I had to add some hexies.
Then I followed that up with some echo quilting with my walking foot - who doesn't like a quilted cock?
Gregg hung the quilted sign this morning... doesn't it look great? Yes, there are many things I could have done better - but I LOVE The Wild Cock sign! It makes our little bar really fun and festive.
Now I'm looking forward to see what else I can add letters to in my quilting projects!
