It had been a while since I'd made a quilt as a gift for my Mom,
so when I attended the One Stop Shop Hop (in Dayton, Ohio) last October and saw a shop sample made with Chickadee fabric, I immediately knew it would be perfect for my mother.
I purchased the kit mid-October, I stitched it together at a retreat mid-November, quilted it after Thanksgiving, and mailed it on it's way to arrive for Christmas!

The coloring is a little off, but I do like the finish. And, she absolutely LOVED it!
For inquiring minds: the fabric line was called Chickadees and Berries,
and I purchased the kit from Creative Fires Quilt & Stove Shop, Springfield, Ohio.
