This rooster was a joy to make.  Just totally fun and joyful.  His name is McGuinty and he is a Chanticler Rooster which are rare.  He has the most Beautiful Tail.  Here is the original photograph.


Definitely a Bad Boy!

He came out wonderfully, love how you captured him and how you used the various prints for the background.

He may be a Bad Boy but that is one Great Quilt!

That is wonderful, Barbara. I love the background you chose too. I think it's my favorite of your chickens.

I love the rooster - did you stitch around the rooster in black thread or paint or ink as the outline? You have done a wonderful job with it!!
