The Chicken! The Chicken!

I -finally- got my chores out of the way so I could start working on the Chicken quilt.  Here are some of the fabrics I have pulled / purchased:
Love the chicken soup recipe fabric on the upper right!

and these:

 Chris donated this terrific fabric:

but there's only one yard of it, so I have to be careful. I think I know what I am going to do with it, but I am not quite sure. So I'll work a little bit, and then see how it goes.

I like these three grey-ish neutrals. I am particularly happy with the broken chicken wire print on the left, since the chicken has flown the coop...

I'm working on the layout, but one thing I have decided is the background will not be white or cream, or black. (Been there, done that.)

And there won't be a chicken.
