Wanted: quilt block pattern with appliqued roostergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Cooking & Crafts : One Thread
I want to make some cushions, and I'd like to put a quilted rooster on them. I am looking for something with easy lines to applique, and something that will be quite colourful. I want to use up some silk. (disassembled blouses that I've been saving). Any suggestions where to look?

I had just recently checked out a book by Georgia Bonesteel on lap quilting and she had a fairly simple rooster applique in that. I'm sorry I don't remember the specific title, but it had "lap quilting" in it. Hope that helps.

If you go to Ebay and type in "rooster pattern" in your search, I saw one there this morning. It was a rooster and barn quilt block pattern, and the rooster was pretty simple, kind of a stained glass look. I think the price for both patterns was only about $7, or you might even be able to fashion your own from the picture. Good luck!

Look through basic children's coloring books. You know, beginner ones that have farm animals. You might have to enlarge one though. I remember using that technigue for cute patches on my sons pants at the knees.

Try your local library, and check out a copy of the April, 2001 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. They had a rooster quilt on the cover, probably would work for what you need. Jan
