Chicken Flimsy!

I've finished the top of my chicken quilt. The photo really doesn't do it justice. The colours are so much richer! I can't decide whether to use the fabric I had bought as backing or piece the backing with the leftovers! I'll think about it overnight.
 
This quilt is for the back of the couch. It's been such a long time since I've made a big quilt instead of mini's! Now to send it off to be quilted.

Very nice, and so quick too :) I like Shez's idea for cushions, though how you would make them er chew proof is beyond me :)
