Block 62 Hen and Chicks

The Splendid Sampler project really helps to hone your piecing skills. This particular block uses very small pieces so you have to be precise. I am not sure I would do a whole quilt of this particular block, but I do love how it turned out.

Here’s how I quilted it using my ruler presser foot:

  • Stitched in the ditch around the center square, the cross, and the triangles.
  • Echo stitched inside of the orange triangles two times using the ruler foot as the measuring device.
  • Stitched chain of pearls in the yellow rectangles.
  • Stitch the border design like the other blocks.
