Alphabe-Thursday

Q is for Quilt
I have almost finished sewing the quilt top together for my middle daughter.  I still need to add some boarders to make it large enough for her king sized bed and I think I will be sending this quilt to the local quilter to do the quilting on her long arm machine.  I think it is just going to be way more than I want to tackle. 
Q is also for Queen of the chicks.  
Well you must have known I would work in the chicks since I have not posted all week.  They are two weeks old in these pictures.
This guy is our chick charmer.  Every chick he held would snuggle in and fall asleep.
This little one was hopping around and so excited that I could not get a chick in her hands quick enough.
I am late posting for Alphabe-Thursday this week but if you are visiting here I hope that you will still go over to Jenny Matlock's and check out the other participants posts.

First, I thought it couldn't get any sweeter than that butterfly quilt-- then I saw the chicks, and I thought it couldn't get any sweeter than that-- then I saw the little ones, and knew they were definitely the sweetest!

Good Morning Brenda,

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit! We love having company.

The song, Quinn the Eskimo, is attached to that blog via my playlist, in case you have your sound turned on during reading.

Our grandchildren love animals and I wish we had some chickens here at our farmplace but we only raise cattle.

I enjoyed your Q post! Thanks for sharing.

Christy said...

What a beautiful quilt, your daughter is blessed to be receiving it! And your chickies are adorable - the ones with feathers too!

Jenny said...

Awwww..... a chick charmer. I love that name. Awwwww....

What a great post! Your quilt is lovely and all those chick pictures just made me smile. I will be getting random silly grins all day thinking about your son soothing all the chicks!

Thanks for a happy stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's Letter "Q"!

A+

OH my word, did you applique on all those butterflies? That is a lot of work! I hope you will show us the after picture too. Such a beautiful quilt!
Looks like the little ones are having fun taking care of the chicks!

Melinda Cornish said...

the quilt is wonderful and I dont blame you for not wanting to quilt that big of one yourself...they are monsters.....
The baby chicks holding the baby chicks are sooooo cute....I want chickens so bad but we cant have them here because of an ordinance.....great q post and have a great weekend!

fuzziekit said...

The quilt is beautiful and it is understandable about sending it out to quilt. That part is my aunt's least favorite.
The kids and the chickies are adorable as always... they are so fun to see.

Manuela@TPOH said...

That going to be a beautiful quilt when finished! The kiddos look so cute with the chicks!

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Hi again Brenda :-)

I just wanted to say thanks so much for your visit, I really do appreciate your comments on my cubby post.

Have a wonderful day!
Anne

B said...

Wow! I didn't think those chicks could get any cuter until I saw them with your adorable little ones! :)

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Oh! My! What a beautiful quilt! Hm...some of my unfinished quilt tops that "wanted to grow up" into a queen size bed...may just have to be "satisfied with staying small...for a crib size"! Or they may never get finished!

What beautiful grandkids! I can't wait til we become grandparents :o) (Hm...maybe, I will be able to finally have a quilt completed before our first grandbaby comes along!)

Blessings & Aloha!
(I would love to see more of your quilts and the hope chests that you husband had built.) If you post about them, please let me know.

I am still catching up from last week, but I had already been by to visit (just not left a comment). Your quilt is absolute lovely. Butterflies have a sweet and special meaning to me. And your chick charmers (all of them) are precious. The babies must be getting really big now.
