It was on a woman's blog, describing the quilts that she saw that caught her eye.  This one was an original (as you surmised) and executed by four different people as a pass-around.  Each person had the full picture and which quadrant they were to replicate.  Then, all four pieces were gathered in one place and stitched together into one top.  If you look closely, you might be able to see the seam line where the quadrants were.  There was no mention of who got to keep it.

I meant some chicken fabric for your black, white, yellow chicken coop.  Nothing realistic, just humorous.

ah, and here I was, taking you literally.  Well .. all I can say is .. one never knows!  :-)   

Ya know, I don't think I have chicken fabric in the proper scale.  I have eggs.  I have scraps of chicken wire.  MAYBE I might have some realistic chickens SOME PLACE.   Hmmm ... that could be another option .. have faces of people or animals looking out from the cube.  :-)

Absolutely it is machine pieced because there is no way I would ever ever hand piece anything!

I do have chicken , eggs, and chicken wire fabric.  If you are somewhat interested I'll post a photo to see if you would like any of it.

Faces of people and animals could be fun, too.

There's something about 79 year old ears and modern broadcasting .......

My problem is that the background music and noise is so loud, it drowns out the speaking parts.  Frustrating.

Now ... while we are still sheltering-in-place.

Just heard that your governor says you are sheltering in place for at least 3 more months!  Yikes.

I believe that is Los Angeles county only.   This is because confirmed cases and deaths have continued to rise. 

The rest of California's restrictions are being eased in stages.
