Dish Drainer Quilt

Have you gotten your recent copy of MaryJanesFarm yet? Well if you have, did you see the darling dish drainer quilts? When I saw them, I knew I had to make one right away. So clever too, they take the place of those nasty plastic drainer under a dish rack! No more icky and difficult to clean drainer! I don't use one at our house, but with the cabin nearing completion, I will definitely need one there! Basically, it is a tiny quilt! Without any hand quilting!I also put a running chicken on mine (reminds me of our "girls" when they see us coming into the barnyard). I can't remember where I got the design.....sorry. The picture above shows more of the goodies I made or bought this week for the cabin.

I did machine stitch around the chicken to add a little stability to the quilt. Be sure and check out the original (with tutorial) in this month's MaryJanesFarm magazine! Diana
