"Crazy Roosters"

Without further ado I give you “Crazy Roosters”, the project from Mrs Moen Spring Mystery 2010.
Being of an adventurous nature, I was just one step ahead of the rest of the group. Imagine my shock when I proudly showed the blocks to husband and he could not see any creatures at all. What if no one else saw them either? Well, I think he might be renamed from “incredible patient husband” to “husband of no imagination” because the Mystery ladies did recognize the feathered little guys although none of them had figured it out before the big reveal.

I hope to have a little show & tell of finished Mystery projects here later, I have seen a few and they are looking gorgeous!

If you did not participate in the Mystery and would like to make the roosters, you still can. I was going to write a pattern, but due to a little coughing bug that has been knocking out our family members one by one the last week, time is a problem. What I can do is that I’ll let you into the Mystery Blog for a few bucks and you can follow the instructions there. Just leave a comment including your email address, and we’ll take it form there.


I want to thank all of you for crossing your fingers for me on Wednesday. I made it to the guild meeting lugging amongst other stuff the heart quilt. There were 3 prizes to be drawn and when it was time for the last prize I told the lady to pick me. And she did. That was fun!

I had no idea that they would be so happy getting rid of me, but I got a standing ovation when I said my goodbyes. The badges looked great though, decorating their quilter’s bosoms as they were clapping…

Now I’ll add this to Amylouwho’s Sew and tell; pop over and get inspired.

  1. I totally saw the roosters before I even read anything. My husband goes into panic mode when I ask his opinion on anything to do with quilting. Sheesh! Very fun pattern - love the button eyes especially.

  24. Fantabulous! Love your rooster quilting!

    With the fabrics I used my roosters don’t really stand out. Mr DC doesn’t recognize them, not even when I give them eyes. But I love the result! Thanks again for a lovely mystery!
