Boogie in the Hen House (But No Black Ties)

Fowl Play Collection by Benartex Fabrics
Contest is over and Joyce is my winner of the fat quarter bundle with 6 of the chicken panels. Congratulations, Joyce!

I get to rock out again in the hen house with the Fowl Play fabrics I used a few weeks ago in a tutorial for Benartex. These are just so much fun, as you can see in the stack above: little chicks, chicken wire, chicken scratching and BIG hens with names from REAL chickens from a REAL chicken farm. There's even a border print with chickens on a wire which I used at the top and bottom of this table runner.

You can see what I did here: Rock out in the Hen House

I wanted to revisit these fabulous chicken and rooster panels and do something very different. This time I chose those with the blue chicken wire backgrounds.
Same chickens with a blue background
Then I did something radical (at least I think so). I ignored the square shape and cut them out using a hexagon shape!
OK. What kind of crazy thing is she going to do now?
If you've been following this blog for any length of time you know that I am enamored with hexagons and putting them together into a variety of ways. I decided to put these together into a hexie ring. No y-seams; only straight seam sewing!
Add two 60 degree triangles to each hexagon chicken
Sew three units into a larger half-hexagon (top and bottom as shown here)
But there's a BIG HOLE in the center!
Yes, there's a big hole in the center, right? Time to cover it up. Cut out a hexagon, interfaced it, turned it right side out by clipping into the interfacing.

Interfaced hexagon
All edges of the hexagon neatly turned under without any hand applique!
What does it look like finished? Well, first the center which I call: Chicken a la Ring

And now for the table topper, which I am gifting to my daughter Hilary's friend Anita who happens to have a fond affection for chickens. She actually was raising some in her back yard in Pittsburgh last year!

Yes, there's a giveaway (if you've come this far).
4 fat quarters and 6 chicken panels (all different chickens)
Tell me your "favorite" barnyard animal (if you have one). Or if you have chickens or cows or goats at your house. Contest is over midnight Sunday November 24 at midnight. I am traveling and teaching, but I promise to read every single comment, though it's really hard to reply due to time constraints (and only an iPad with those blasted, funky keyboards). I love having virtual visitors!

Many thanks to Vicki of More Stars in Comanche who coordinated this hop. I love her blog and especially her dog TITUS. Hey, Titus - how're you doing today? (He's a dachshund who is as cute as my own dog). And of course, Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt who keeps all of us in line (or at least tries to). Now, go visit the other bloggers for today and see what they've come up with for the Black Tie Boogie!

  1. Lovely project! I love the way you cut the panels :) We have cows, but pigs are definitely my favorite barnyard animal!

  2. Your table topper is so different. I love the idea of the giant hexagon. I have quite a collection of chickens and I used to have 4 live chickens until a fox got them.

  3. Oh my gosh Debby, I love Chicken a la Ring!!!!! Notice how many exclamation marks! And no "Y" seams...gotta love that! Anita will flip over it. I bet you know my favorite barnyard animal... Titus said to tell you Hi back and he hopes his Grandma wins that fabric... (I'm his Grandma you know.) Thanks for being part of BTB hop.

  4. Love how you used the panels to highlight each chicken. I don't have any barnyard animals now but grew up on a farm. My favorites were the pigs, they are much smarter than people think they are.

  5. Love your project. I love how you choose to cut those squares into hexagons. Great idea. Where I live we cant' have farm animals but if I could I'd have chickens.

  6. Your table topper is wonderful! No barnyard animals now, but had them growing up. Thank you for sharing.

  7. I love your ring around the coop! So cute and I absolutely love the material. I can tell you my least favorite barnyard animal, a male goose, they can be so very mean. Thanks for sharing your how to on the hexi ring and the giveaway! ;)

  8. You are just so clever! I love your design and the fabrics are just so fun. Being raised on a farm, running the farm, managing farms - gosh hard to chose. I did so love the Belgian draft horse - yes, we worked the fields with them for many years even with all the fancy machinery.

  9. Great table topper! The blue is a nice background with the chickens. Love the bottom with all the chickens in a row. My barnyard animal is chickens now. Years ago I had everything "cow" but not sure why chickens are my thing. Thanks for sharing, great job!

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

  10. Hi Debby...I absolutely love this fabric, and what a cool table topper. Sew different with how you cut it...looks awesome! I used to have chickens...it was so much fun! I used to take a chair out to the barn and just sit among them...what a relaxing sound they make!

  12. Love your quilt. Very cute chicken fabric. We have 8 girls now who give us wonderful eggs. All different colors- blue-dark brown and various shades of browns. They provide lots of entertainment and we have names for them all. Thanks for sharing the idea about the hexagons. You have me thinking already! K-

  16. I absolutely love this fabric and you did it justice. I grew up on a farm and loved feeding the chickens and gathering the eggs. Now I live out in the country but no chickens anymore. I think I need some curtains made out of this and some new placemats, cushions, etc.

  17. You are so talented. I never thought one could use a panel the way you did. I love it! We can't have farm animals where we live but I have a whole collection of ceramic pigs in my garden window; they make me smile.

  18. We l-o-v-e our chickens. They are so cheerful and friendly and funny. Right now Odetta, Elspeth, and Petra are tucked in in a special home we built for them in our garage to keep them warm during the winter. I love going down to say goodnight to them when I turn out the lights every evening. They are reliably happy; I'll bet they have very sweet dreams.

  19. ohhh wow Debby, you are the coolest chick I know…and can you boogie…love how they are set up in your quilt…they seem to fit right in lol

  20. amazing how you played around with these chicks and came up with this, love the hexies you made with them

  21. Adorable table topper. Thanks or sharing how to do it.I quite unfamiliar with barnyard animals. As a child we had a goat who lived in the "back"yard. Billy was a lively, entertaining, fun and much loved pet .. so I would say goats are my favorite barnyard animals.

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a great idea to cut hexies! That is thinking outside the box, so to speak. That is an awesome table topper and I have the perfect table for such a thing. No animals here except cats. My husband would like some chickens, but much like children with pets, I know who would end up caring for them.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is terrific. I'm developing a great fondness for hexies and am still very limited in my thinking - unfortunately.

    I grew up on a farm and my bros raised purebred Hampshire sheep. I grew to really like them. One brother had left home and the other was at college, I'd take a plastic baseball bat and go feed the sheep. I needed to be sure the rams couldn't butt me.

    This past summer one of my grandsons was with me. He said, "Ga, you have a chicken in your backyard!" He's 7, so I figured he knew what a chicken is, but ... By the time, I got to the patio door, there were two chickens. I have autoimmune issues and just can't have chicken droppings in my yard. I had a good idea from whence the chickens cometh. I have a neighbor who marches to a different drummer. I knew he already had a goat. Well, animal control told him he had to ... So the chickens and goat are gone and the bees are supposedly up to code now. Yup, you can have chickens in the city here and I guess bees and even goats. There has to be one acre of ground (not including the ground the house in on) for each goat. His carpet has been on his front porch for probably three years because the goat was in the house most of the time.
    As always, thanks for a great project. I always enjoy your work. Your are a great inspiration.

  26. Such cute projects, love them! I don't have any farm animals. When I was little we lived across the street from my great grandfather who had a working farm. He would sometimes get a bunch of baby chicks (he called them peeps) and I loved to go and see them all running around like mad. It seemed like there were hundreds of them, but I was probably only 4 so it might have been only a couple dozen.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love your chicken topper! And I love that you have used hexies to highlight that great chicken fabric. Wonderful job! I guess chickens would be my favorite. Never raised them but had a cousin who had just one chicken. It rode around on his bike handlebars and was quite a funny bird!

  28. Great table topper! I really like the personality of the chickens. My favorite? Pigs!

  32. Debye as usual another lovely project by you. My favorite farm animal is the pig. So yummy!

  33. What great fabric, and I love the hexie look. I have secret fantasies about having chickens and bees, but live in the city on a small lot with close neighbors, so it hasn't happened. I 'babysat' for little lambs when I was in college and was delighted to see that they run like little cartoon characters, so they are probably my favorite! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love your table topper. Chickens are my favorite. I remember when I was a kid & we visited my Grandmother on the farm, my favorite thing to do was sneak an ear of corn from the corn crib & go out to the chicken yard (which was pretty much anywhere outside of the fence around the farmhouse) & feed the chickens. I'd shuck a little corn into the palm of my hand, squat down & make the chickens come to me & eat out of my hand. Thanks for reviving some happy memories & thanks for the chance to win.

  35. Debby your Tablerunner is so pretty ,just love ,love ,love it.No chickens here ,but my parents had them when I was growing up.Would not mine at all having a runner like it .

  36. Wow Debby - I would never have dreamed of putting them together that way but it's just fabulous! Of course, I'm still a bit intimidated by hexagons so those of you who are using them amaze me Love this project! blessings, marlene

  37. My favorite barnyard animals are cows. When my children were little and we passed a pasture, I'd go "moo" one day I did that and my son said "mom those are horses" LOL
    Now where we live in No. GA. I just have to leave my S/D and there are cows in the farm across the road and down the road and all over. Just love watching them.

  38. Great projects. No animals at our house. Chickens running around have always scared me since I got pecked by one when I was very young.

  39. Definitely chickens and roosters would be favorites on my FANTASY farm.In reality, they can be a little delicate and somewhat temperamental if the rooster is unhappy. If I had a REAL farm, though, I would have Jersey cows and maybe a few sheep.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow Debby...this fabric is so much fun. I have to get some of that!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a beautiful quilt and I enjoyed your tutorial. Nice jog! My favorite barnyard animal would be the cat. I grew up in the heartland of PA. There most all the farms are dairy farms. In every barn with those Holstein cows were cats. They kept the mice and rats down.

  46. Hi Debby, Cute, cute project! I grew up on a farm, and we raised lots of chickens. I used to chase my sister with them! My favorites on the farm, tho, were our 2 Shetland ponies. I remember the day my dad bought them at a farm sale. I fell in love.

  54. Chicken Ala Ring love it. No farm animals anymore even though I live on DH's family farm. From what I hear they used to raise hogs, but then all the city folk that started buying property around complained about the smell. We are getting prepared for chickens next year though. What use is it to have a farm if you don't at least have some chickens.

  55. Very nice table topper and very creative. The fabric is awesome. My favorite barnyard animal is chickens and roosters. I have quite a collection...not live though! Thanks for offering the giveaway.

  56. Hi Debby: Love the chicken ring. My favorite barnyard animal would have to be chickens. We kept chickens for a while in our backyard shed in the city. When it came time to make chicken stew, no one in our family could bring ourselves to end their lives, so we gave them to a friend who had a farm.

  57. Growing up on the farm, we had cows,pigs,chickens, and a goose. I hated the goose and he hated me. I guess my favorite is the chickens. I really like that topper, two of my favorite things...hexes and chickens

  61. Wowsa! I like that design and the fabrics are great! I'm a city girl, so I've never had farm animals but I would say horses are my favourite. I visited a friend once who had goats. They followed us when we went for a walk, just like a dog would.

  64. Love your hexies! Such a creative spin to give each chicken their own roost! Now I'd like to think someone would build a real roost-in-the-round. Wouldn't that be cool!?! My favorite barnyard animal is a sheep. But yesterday I saw a PIG in the road--for real! I worried for hours that her owner got her home--she was so friendly. What a first for me!!

  71. Your quilts are sew creative and I adore how you twist and turn. Chickens on a wire are the cutest ever! I don't have any farm animals but I have always adored mice. They can live in the fields and not my home. Thank you for Black Tie Boogie hopping. Creative Stitching Bliss...

  87. Believe it or not, I love pigs!!!! I grew up on a farm and we would raise the "runts" of the litter! The two I remember most were Hamlet(cute, huh?) and Primrose. They are really quite intelligent and so friendly. Primrose even had pink bow on her cute little curly tail!

  90. What a cute table topper. And I think it could easily be adapted to seasons. I grew up in the city, but we received chicks on year for Easter. Mine was sky blue, so being the rebel that I am, I named him Sky Blue,lol. When he grew large enough to cock-a-doodle-do my dad awake, he went to "live" on a farm. I didn't eat chicken for a month!

  91. Bahahahaha, Chicken a la Ring!!!!! Too funny! That is a great runner. I never thought I had a fave barnyard animal but I do love my brothe's roosters.

  92. As usual Debbie you like to think outside the box and came up with some cute hexies. Really love what you did with the chickens they are so cute .
    I use to go to my Great aunt's farm when growing up and I loved the cows because they had this beautiful brown eyes.

  100. Pigs, pigs, pigs.... pigs are what we love in the house... hence the name of my blog: PigTalesandQuilts. :)

    We don't have any actual animals on our farm unless you count the stray dogs and stray cats that always seem to find their way here.

    And we do have a resident groundhog.... sometimes he takes a wife and has a bunch of young ones for a while. then he gets divorced and it is just him again for a while. he lives under the corn crib and knows that his domain is on THAT side of the driveway. lol

I keep telling my DH we should move to a farm when we move back to Canada. I would have chickens for sure. He says I'm going to the farm by myself...he's going into an apartment. Thanks for sharing Debby...Happy stitching, Pauline

  112. Growing up on a farm, my favorite animal was our horses! I loved being able to ride horse any time I wanted, I was very sad when my dad sold our them after I had grown up and moved away. Love your table topper, I am just getting into hexies and it definitely gave me some ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Love the Chicken a la Ring!! The border fabric and the panels are fantastic, and of course hexagons would be something you could come up with. I think chickens have lately become my favorite farm animal. Enjoyed meeting you in Tinley Park at the Expo. How do you get all this done??? Thanks!
