The chick is so fat and cute he makes a great addition to The Easter Blanket. But he would also be great on his own as a pillow or wall hanging! Especially if you have a child in your life who adores chicks (and chickens!) like I do! My eldest granddaughter just loves all things chicken and she would absolutely love this square made into a pillow — or even a blanket made up of only this square.

If you are new to corner to corner and are just getting started with this blanket I have several tutorials which will help get you up to speed! Just click on the link to go to the tutorials —
