The Endeavourers Texture

Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens

Actually it’s a cock because they have the nost flamboyant plumage. I love the quills that overlay the feathers creating extra texture in the plumage and as that is the topic this quarter a cockerel it is

I have chickens but pretty though they are they are not as fancy!

I used some felting to do the comb and wattle but I kept catching it in the presser foot. I added it before quilting thinking it would be easier to attach to a single layer of fabric – I was worried about breaking the needle going through too many layers of fabric but I think I should have on last

 

The quills were made from thin strips of dyed t-shirting which was then pulled to make thin curly strips

 

I echo quilted around him

 

 

 

 

 

 

The lower part is shibori, indigo dyed fabric which looks like feathers. different coloured threads – mostly variegated – were used to echo and accentuate the outlines

This is quite small so I may revisit this topic on a larger scale as I like the subject matter and the greater use of texture than I would normally do

Why not pop over to The Endeavourers Texture and see what everyone else has been making
