Celebrate Chickens

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACraig received a wonderful gift in celebration of chickens from good friend Delse Buss, wife of long time colleague and owner of Buss Landscape Co. in Libertyville.

 

Delse made the pillow using rescued vintage “orphan” quilt squares from the late 1800/early 1900s. Orphans are quilt squares made but never set into a quilt. She appliquéd the chicken and CBLD sign (ripping off the logo from our website!) on new cotton fabric, used old blue jeans for the border and vintage red check fabric for the pillow back, hand-quilting it all together. Voila!

 

Her goal was to give Craig something unlike anything else in his home decor! She succeeded! Nothing better that a thoughtful gift from a long-time friend. Thank you.
