Adorable Friends Chicken Quilt – 14 Free Chicken Quilt Patterns

The other day I was trying to organize my sewing area and I found this cute little Friends Chicken Quilt.  It’s a wall hanging I made about 15 years ago.  I did all the quilting by hand.

I showed the little quilt to all three of my daughters (25, 20 & 18) separately and they all said the exact same thing, “Mom, you should give that to Bri.”  Bri is one of my oldest’s daughter’s best friends.  She was was so kind to open her home to my four kids, me, our dogs, and a bunny, when we ran for our lives from the 2015 Valley Fire.  My husband was working out of state at the time.

This cute quilt has a new home with Bri!  Bri is the proud owner of two hens so I agree with my girls, the Friends Chicken Quilt is perfect for Bri.

This is an old picture of my daughter #3 with one of her hens.  We lost all of our chickens in the Valley Fire.

Years ago we used to let our chickens free-range.  As soon as we’d open their hen door in the morning to let them out, the whole flock would take off running for my front porch hoping we’d come outside and give them a snack.  These little chicken friends really enjoyed pooping on my porch.  😮

That's a lovely quilt. Very talented. I'm in the city so there are no chickens around here. Since I work in a rural area I see lots of range chickens which I had no idea until I asked why there were chickens in the road! lol

Lol. I really loved it when we could let our chickens free range, but they liked pooping on our porch too much. They'd also get up into our potted plants and scratch up the potting soil. Thanks for visiting SassyCat!

What a special quilt it turned out to be, a perfect gift for your friend. We also have chickens and whenever we go outside they come running, looking for food. My husband usually lets them free range part of the day, and they are in a fenced in area the rest of the time. They are interesting little critters. :) Thanks for visiting my blog!

Chickens are so much fun to have around. We've had chickens for over 20 years and now that the Valley Fire took them all from us, I can't tell you how much we miss having them around. It feels so wrong to throw kitchen scraps away. I think once we get our fencing back up we will end up having chickens, goats, hogs, and a steer or two. :D I can't wait!
