Chickens Ready to Fly the Coop

I locked myself in my sewing room yesterday with the iTunes blaring. The goal: to get the borders on this one and have it ready for the long arm quilter. This was the $5 quilt in 2007 and I just got the top together at our May retreat. This is by far the quilt with the most pieces I have ever made! I can't wait to see what the quilter does with it.

My goal is to someday have a quilt for each month of the year on the bed. This one will be November.

Go Postal's China is Spode's Woodland pattern. His Mom (like mine) thought he needed to be buying decent plates and utinsels for our homes...maybe they had given up that we would ever get married or wanted easy gift ideas for Christmas.

See my color inspiration for finishing up the quilt? When the coordinating fabrics had these fancy birds I knew I wanted them to roost in the blank squares of the setting.
