I purchased this fried egg fabric some time ago in a local quilt shop. I was not sure what I would make from the fabric, but as a chicken collector, I knew I had to have some of that wonderful egg fabric.
I recently came across the chicken fabric on the left. I knew that this fun chicken fabric would be perfect paired with the fried eggs. I had a lot of fun looking through patterns trying to decide which pattern would best showcase these special fabrics. I came across a quilt on the Internet that reminded me of Quiltmaker's Warm Wishes quilt pattern. LindaJ reminded me that the quilt was also a lot like Atkinson Designs' Tile Tango pattern.
I worked backwards from what I wanted to see as a finished size for this quilt. I wanted this quilt to finish approximately 45 to 50 inches square. I drafted the design on scrap paper and figured out how many strips and what size of strips that I needed to cut out of which fabric.
This is the resulting flimsy, Which Came First....the Chicken or the Egg?
