I'm joining The Chicken Run!
I fell in love with these colorful little pieced pin cushions and thought it looked like the perfect weekend project ... small enough to cut, piece and finish in one sitting. Little did I know that they are so fun and quick to put together that I would soon have a growing flock of them.
The Chicken Run began in England in January and has made landings in Australia, Germany and Virginia and Montana, USA. And now it has made its way to Texas! Where in the world will the next chicken fly away to?
That's where the real fun comes in .. I'll be sending one of my little hens on the next leg of The Chicken Run and if you want to be the next stop and win one of the chickens pictured, here is all you need to do:
1. Agree to make another chicken and give it away on your blog within 4 weeks of receiving your prize.
Include a link back to Oh Sew Tempting, where your chicken will appear in the Chicken Run Gallery, along with a link to your giveaway.
( If you do not blog, Avis will be happy to organize the giveaway for you on her blog Oh Sew Tempting )
2. Leave a comment below telling me which is your favorite chicken and where she would be going if you are the winner :)
I'll be selecting a lucky winner next friday night ( yes, that's July 4th, an easy to remember deadline for entries )
This giveaway is open to anyone anywhere!
Want to see more before you decide which one you would like to win?
If you don't want to wait to win one, you can make your own little Pin Hen out of scraps of your favorite fabric. I love these patchwork ladies ... you can find a great, easy follow tutorial by Sarah on her blog Here We Are!
Of course, once I had made a few of the patchwork chicks, I had to try out a couple with matchstick quilting, and I love the way they turned out.
I'll be posting a tutorial to make the upcycled matchstick quilted hens on Saturday so stop back by if you'd like to see how easy it is to join The Chicken Run yourself.
Which will you choose?
