Chicken Buffet Quilt - Support Hospice of Iredell County

Chicken Buffet Quilt
 We are pleased to assist the Lake Norman Shag Club in their efforts to raise money to support the Hospice of Iredell County.

This quilt was made as a donation quilt, and the proceeds will go to Hospice of Iredell County. The drawing will take place at the Lake Norman Shag Club’s Annual Chicken Pickin’ by the Sea on February 12, at the OD Arcade in North Myrtle Beach, SC. The club’s chicken themed event generated the idea of a chicken quilt to raise money for a charitable organization. Last year their chicken quilt raised over $900, and they hope to surpass that amount this year.

Sue Warren loved making this quilt, because it gave her an opportunity to work with friends and enjoy the creativity that was involved in making appliqués. Several club members, Del Meadows, Karen Guinta, and Pam Bundy assisted her with the appliqués. They had a great time picking out the accessories for each chicken and coming up with the black and white backgrounds and borders. Texture Magic was used on the chicken bodies in order to give the quilt added dimension. Each chicken represents a chicken dish, and the recipes for the chicken dishes are located in a pocket on the back of the quilt. The black and white background adds to the whimsical nature of this quilt, as well as, the chicken feet walking around the inside border. This quilt will make an excellent wall hanging and be a fun addition to the décor of any room.

It will be displayed at The Quilter’s Loft beginning Tuesday, January 18. Stop in to see it, and purchase tickets for $1 for your chance to win this beautiful quilt.
