Chickens in the Coop

A chicken-wire print background and appliqués in feed sack reproductions, all from the Rise 'n Shine collection for Maywood Studios, combine in a cute kitchen wall hanging. The border corners are fussy-cut from a large-scale farm print from the same fabric collection. The appliqués are fused in place, then machine-blanket-stitched with black thread.
