I think two of my hens seem pretty happy to look at it too! I got a bundle of chicken fabric odds and ends in an ebay auction ages ago, when I first started keeping a few backyard hens, and now at last I had a use for them. (I keep a blog/diary about my hens too, if you are interested)
It is lap quilt size and made out of 2.5" strips of chicken themed fabrics and some solid grey fabric. I quilted 1cm away from each triangle edge and am thinking about doing some hand quilting in the grey spaces, probably stitching the outlines of chickens!

not buying quite enough backing fabric - oops
It is now Autumn here which means Scotland is becoming even more beautiful. But the one thing that doesn't become more beautiful in Autumn are hens. Every Autumn hens loose their feathers and grow new ones. This moulting process makes them appear very scraggy and pitiful and it is certainly not a good time for posing in front of quilts for the world to see!
