Rooster Day

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

When I started Mr. Rooster he was supposed to be a fast made Fall Fair themed decor art for my booth at the 2011 Bulkley Valley Fall Fair.


It was a really fun event and one that I'd sure like to do again. I was busy trying my interest at selling organic 100% cotton. And it does contain some awesome photo's of the whole booth for your interest by going to the post published back in 2011.



This summer Rooster I See You gained more attention and I decided that I didn't like it that this poor rooster had no neck and background.


I began fusing feathers of all free form simply hand-drawn feather shapes onto various similarly colored prints.


This is where I've got so far today.


I think he looks a lot better and I'm dreaming up a Fall Fair themed background maybe. I'm not sure so if you have ideas, please share them in a comment.

Happy Quilting everyone.

  1. I like Mr. Rooster. As for the background question - for some reason I think you should play up the male-ness of him - perhaps something that is stereo-typical male, but not animal-themed. Maybe something along the line of a gigalo...love 'em and leave 'em...

  4. The feathers were the perfect addition. I kind of like the blue background because the colour is a nice complement to the red/rust feathers. Maybe you could add texture and visual interest to the background by quilting with interesting threads,
