Stupid Triangles and Not So Cute Chicken Fabric

Triangles broke my machine.

Maybe this is what I get for sewing at midnight, but I do a lot of my sewing at midnight. Everything is quiet and no one is up to call me or ask me to do something other than sew.

I was trying to catch up with the KQAL. And I got my stack down to about 50 before I was about to go to bed. "Just five more," I said, trying to be kind to morning-me that would sit down to sew again.


"No. No more. EVER!," said my machine who clearly hates triangles. 
We'll see how much it costs me to get it fixed. I hope it doesn't take long. I do have a backup machine but it's clunky. I usually use it for garment construction when I'm using canvas/leather. It likes to eat cotton. 

In other news, I've been staring at this chicken fabric for a week now:

It is nothing that I would have picked up on my own but it's the required fabric for a contest at my LQS. I have no idea what to do with it. Seriously. 
My dreams are haunted by perky country chickens. 

I think I need help...

  1. Hmm... that's a hard one. How much fabric do you have? Can you add to it? Here is a pattern I was thinking of doing with an Amy Butler yard bundle I picked up back in March.

    It might work for yours if you wanted to fussy cut the chickens. Chickens,... man, I don't know what to say!
