It is hard for me to get good photographs of my roosters because my kitchen is painted red and I did not want to take them down from the top of the kitchen cabinets.
Meet the "Rule of the Roost"
This looks like an oil painting. But, of course it isn't.
Part of the tail feathers of this rooster are made of painted tin. A closeup is below.
This is the noisy one.
He just seems to be crowing all of the time.
These little guys are behind the times. It really is after 5 p.m.
The plate was given to me by a friend after I attended a very special church retreat. De Colores means "The Colors".
This one is only one of my favorite roosters from a group of nine. The rest are below.
This is a wall hanging that I made about 2 years ago. This is not a panel. It is actually my first attempt at machine applique. Each rooster is appliqued with many pieces of fabric. It was appliqued onto a piece of chicken wire fabric. I then quilted over each of the wire sections with a micro filament thread (invisible). This quilt took many, many hours but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I saw the quilt at the Dallas Quilt Show a few years ago and fell in love with it. After thinking about it for hours, I decided to purchase a kit with the patterns and fabric swatches for the roosters. (The only quilting kit I have every purchased.) I also purchased the chicken wire fabric. The rest of the fabric bordering the blocks were from my meager stash.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my rooster family.
Take care and God Bless.
