Blogger's Quilt Festival: Boho Roosters Revisited








Bohemian Roosters
80 x 80
hand quilted

Sunburst pattern is from the book Making Quilts by Kathy Doughty. 
The rooster fussy cut centers were cut from a fabric in my stash  - Bohemian Rooster Click by Susan Winget. 
I then found enough stash fabrics that I thought were boho-ish  enough to coordinate with the centers.  All sunburst points are yellows from stash. 

The quilt was started in November 2017 and finished April 2018.

Scrumptious! I love out of the box ideas traditional blocks! Isn't it amazing how much we can find in our stash?!?!? :)

Such a lot of work completed in a short time..... especially when we know you were juggling loads of other balls (quilts/blocks) at the same time!

I love busy quilts! They are so interesting to look at and they use up a lot of scraps. Love this one.

A wonderful quilt! Looking at the 1st pic I'd say you were chaneneling your inner gypsy, with all those reds & purples & golds! But a closer look reveals those cheeky roosters!

This is just such a gorgeous quilt, Cathy! The roosters in the centers are delightful but for me the star bursts are what capture my eyes and attention. Just beautiful!
