Bocka Bock Bock!

Earlier in the week, I shared a picture of the lovely goodies that I received in Chookyblue's Annual SSCS swap.  I'm thinking this is the fourth year she's run it and I've so enjoyed participating.

She usually announces the swap in August and this year she was a bit later than usual. So I thought she needed some prodding.

And the reply came back:  If you're so eager, you can have me for a swap partner!

I was absolutely delighted.

I had these wonderful chicken blocks from a swap more than eight years ago.  Just languishing in the coop cupboard waiting to be made into something.  And then I saw the perfect border fabric.  Destiny, if I ever met her!  So here's a picture of the snuggle quilt I made for Donna.

She liked it.

A lot.

Destiny, her name is chicken! or Hen! Perfect!

Quick question: what size is a snuggle quilt?

And, dare I suggest it--maybe the way to get me back to quilts is to do a swap. What think ye?
