Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan-Claire Mayfield. This is day three hundred and two of that project.

This quilt block shows two chickens facing each other. One chicken is pecking on the ground where there are some yellow dots and brown dots indicating scratch. The other chicken is upright looking onwards. Each chicken is a brown piece of fabric with a light orange and black stitched outline. The chicken's crests are small rec pieces of fabric with similar stitching. The feet and beak are drawn in with pen. This is all against a light blue salmon-patterned background.

In Australia and New Zealand hens are called Chooks. The term comes from an Irish dialect.

So here are 2 sweet chooks having a snack and a chat!

Perhaps they are discussing all the people they know.

I have just read that chickens have amazing memories and can remember 100 faces!

(How do they decide this stuff?)
