Name of wall hanging- "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"
Size- 17 inches x 18 inches
Inspiration- The ties on the challenge page reminded me of the boxes of interesting ties I have collected to use someday in a quilt. Sometimes when men get dressed up they remind me of roosters strutting around. We also love to see the fancy roosters at the county fair, with their beautiful feathers and independent spirits. Then the rooster had to have some hens, so why not "blonde" hens, thus the title "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" (for you youngsters, that is an old movie title).
I used a copyright free image of a rooster and created the rest as I went along, using fabrics from my fabric pantry. The rooster and hens are made of the silk fabric from mens ties. The background is cotton and the barn is batik.The tail feathers are quilted with feather quilting, and the rest is free motion quilted. I used a multi-colored tie for the binding.
