Basic Skills Necessary:

  • quilting
  • applique

Pattern Description:

The Chicken And The Egg Quilt features 10 Chicken Couples and 2 Egg Couples. No need to debate the age old question of which came first ... the chicken or the egg ... all you need to do is enjoy yourself while you make this applique quilt! The finished quilt measures 45.5? by 41.5? and makes a perfect wall hanging.

Who will enjoy this quilt? I think this quilt would be perfect for a baby or children's room ... make this as a gift and it will become a treasured family heirloom. Not making this for a youngster's room? That's OK, too ... I have one hanging in my home office above the couch! Adults deserve a fun quilt on the wall, right?!

The quilt on the pattern cover is made using Sidewalks by October Afternoon for Riley Blake Designs.

This pattern is available for download immediately - don't you love instant gratification?! (And no shipping!) Simply print the PDF pattern on your home printer. Make sure to set your printer to "No Scaling" and "Print Full Size." Print just page three to test your printer and make sure there are no extra margins - the color should go right up to the edge of the paper.

Bonus Videos are available on our YouTube Channel and on our Stitches of Love Quilting website.

These videos will walk you through picking out your fabrics, lining the egg couples and all kinds of helpful tricks ... don't judge how silly I look on camera, though!
