Foxes are beautiful animals but they have mean streaks. I read when they get into a chicken coop, they kill all the chickens. I guess killing is a sport to them. My cat does the same thing, one mouse at a time.
This quilt is raw edge stitched and has hand embroidery in the backgrounds where I drew flowers and trees. In my quilt, the chickens are on the outside, creating tension.
The border quilting is based on the noxious plant, the Poke weed. The berries become purple when they are ripe and the birds love them.
The backgrounds of the blocks were machine quilted on my home sewing machine.
