Well, I guess I got your mental gears whirling, didn't I? 

I was thinking about HUGE chicken wire that kinda casually haphazardly framed the girls (just like it would in real life) but if you don't want to stitch over the appliques  then that is your "rule" and you can certainly stick with it.

You have plenty of time to ponder your options and I'm glad I could contribute something to "peck at".  stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

I think there are now enough to call them a flock! They sure are cute.

Definitely work from the front of the quilt. You could mark a grid with some kind of removable pen and do a bit practice on paper first.

How about a chicken wire cross hatch?  You could do point to point to get the hexagon shape and wouldn't really matter if you got off a little bit here or there.

There are 24 hen blocks (I've done 11), 6 flower blocks, 4 hen house blocks, 1 fox block, and 1 rooster block.   That's a total of 36 blocks.

You will be working on this for a little while longer.wink  Your "forever" projects never seem to take forever.

I have spent the last three days doing scrap management of three large paper bags stuffed full of fabric. cutting to sizes I use most, sorting what will be passed on to others.  Was working on my 2019 Frolic Bonnie Hunter Mystery but ran out of one fabric.  Tracked some down and ordered and it arrived 9-21. I was surprised at how fast Farm Fresh Fabrics out of NY shipped my order.  It was the only place that had it.  Lucky me.  I put binding on a QOV, my 2017 BH workshop quilt and also finished Good Fortune the 2018 BH Mystery.  So WHY do I still have so many UFO's that need to be done and gone?

My HST projects ate up a bunch of those, but got bored and put them aside for now.  Life is good and I am making progress.  Also getting the house ready for new flooring upstairs and in the stairwell.  Then new baseboard throughout the whole place.  I want to be a minimalist and have very few thing other than my sewing machines and fabric.

I love my new Christmas quilt. I give everything away except the Bonnie Hunter Mysteries.  Those I keep for myself most of the time.
