Today is my birthday!!! Happy Birthday to me! My hubby surprised me with these beautiful roses yesterday! A day early... hmmm... Now how can he top that today on my actual birthday? :)
This is a wallhanging that I made with the Radical Rooster patterns. I just love the look of these albino roosters... and they turned out really awesome all done up in white on white fabrics!
I wanted to put them on black fabric to really show off the albino part of my idea and I added a moon to add to the illusion of it being nighttime. The border fabric came from JoAnns and is perfect for this quilt with its silvery irridescent moons! I fussy cut the fabric so the moons surround the quilt evenly. Perfect finishing touch!
I took my quilt to a neighbors who had a chicken coop to get photos but the photos did not turn out so when we got home, hubby put the quilt on the side of our corn crib. I cropped a rooster out of the other photo and transplanted him on to my photo. :)
I am in a quandry as to what to name the quilt.. I like Moonlight Serenade but I also like Moonlighting In The Barnyard. Which one do you like best?... or do you have any other ideas for a name? Any and all ideas will be welcomed!
Oh Wow Thearica, I'm blown away ! Your quilt is just awesome ! The red borders show case the roosters and frame it perfectly ! I like either name you came up with ! And the picture of it is outstanding..... Your flowers are beautiful....I sincerly hope your birthday is a wonderful day !
Happy Birthday Thearica, what a thoughtful hubby! Love both names for your beautiful quilt. Thank you for sharing.
Happy Birthday Thearica! I love your quilt and both names suit it.
Happy birthday!!!! Your quilt is really something to crow about! Love the black background. Either name for your quilt would be great.
Happy Birthday Thearica...your roses are beautiful. I can understand why your quilt is all yours...it's wonderful. The photo is perfect!! Either name is perfect too. The cake looks delicious...perfect with a cuppa tea. Hope your day is wonderful in every way. Happy stitching, Pauline
Congratulations on your birthday. Please exclude me from the giveaway... Sending a cake across the ocean is a bit silly!
Happy Birthday Thearica!
Happy birthday Thearica! (or Penblwydd Hapus! as we say in Wales!) - the roses sound like a great start to your birthday and hope the day itself is just as lovely :) ... I think I like Moonlight Serenade best, though the other name works just fine too!
Happy birthday Thearica I hope that you will have a wonderful birthday. Your chicken quilt is so awesome. I love it and I think It´s all about Moonshine will be a beautiful name of the quilt will be wonderful.
Thanks for sharing your creativity and being part of this hop.
Oh, Happy Birthday Thearica!! Your quilt is so pretty! I love the white roosters! I think I need to get a rooster pattern! I think Moonlight Serenade is the best name. Very elegant for those birds.
Happy birthday, Thearica! What beautiful flowers! Your quilt is fantastic. I love those white roosters. What about Dancing by Moonlight? or Dancing by Moonlight on the Farm?
Happy Birthday Thearica. Love the picture of your wall hanging. And how did you get that chicken to stand there so perfectly. Very nice. Have a great day and hope everyone spoils you on a very important day. How about Moonlight Party.
Happy birthday. Your flowers are beautiful & so is your quilt. Maybe Barnyard Beauties for a name? Thanks.
OM Goodness I love fruitcake, especially a light cake!!
Happy Birthday! I love your quilt!
Amazing work, Thearica, and Moonlight Serenade or Moon Dance would be a perfect fit!

Happy Birthday. Have a great day!!! Love your quilt.
Happy Birthday, and the quilt is just darling! I like "moonlighting in the barnyard". Thanks for the generous giveaway!
Happy birthday!! Beauiful flowers and quilt!! I cant wait to find out what your wonderful hubby does for you on your actual birthday. I love the name moonlight serenade. But since chickens roost at night, how about sentry duty or protecting the flock around the clock or late night date night firstname.lastname@example.org
♫ Happy Birthday ♫ Lovely roses and a very cute quilt. Great job. I like the name Moonlight Serenade. Have a wonderful day.
♫ Happy Birthday♫ Lovely quilt and roses. I like the name Moonlight Serenade. Love the roosters dancing in the moonlight. Hace a fun day.
My suggestion is Midnight at the Farm. Happy Birthday Thearica. Hope your day is filled with fabric, fun, family & friends
Happy Birthday!!.. I like Moonlight In The Barnyard.
Your quilt is gorgeous! I like whiite roosters on black. It really shows them off. So neat looking! And Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day and get everything you wished for!
Happy happy day to you!!! I love your quilt. I definitely is my fave so far. I am jealous of your beautiful roses, what a pretty surprise! I like the name Moonlight Serenade. I tried to think of something else but I really like that name.
This is really beautiful...love the albino roosters! As for naming quilts, I'm terrible at remembering to do that so I'd have to agree with the others that Moonlight Serenade sounds good to me. :O)
Great rooster quilt! I like Moonlight in the Barnyard.
Happy Birthday!! 'Your picture on the corn crib is just perfect!! I love that you cropped in the real live Plymouth Rock chicken - this looks like a pattern cover! Moonlight Chicks?
Happy Birthday! Your quilt is awesome and the chickens came out fantastic. What about "Moon Over Chickens"....can be a play on words if you really love chickens. Hope you have a grand day!
Happy Birthday! I love Moonlighting in the Barnyard.
Love your quilt. And I see you have your favourite block in there as well. How about Midnight Escapades for a name although sending the cake wouldn't be necessary if I were to win.
Whoops, forgot the most important thing! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Cute quilt and love how you swapped the rooster into the pic! I like Moonlight in the Barnyard.
Happy Birthday!!! Love the quilt and the names suggested. Hope you have a wonderful day and an amazing year to come. Thanks for the chance to win the delicious looking cake.

Happy Birthday Thearica!!
I hope you have a great day!
I love your quilt and I think it should be called Moonlight Serenade!
Fantastic quilt. Great colors--fun too.
...they say it's you Birthday, happy Birthday day to ya! Well, it's the Beatles version of the song that's running thru my head. You should so appreciate the fact that you can NOT hear me singing it to you. LOL!!!!!!!!!!! What a fun albino rooster quilt you have made my friend! I love it. Man, talk about an incredible B-day gift from Madame Samm. Great new blog header! She so rocks!
Have a F A B U L O U S day!!
Happy birthday. Now that is what I call a real barn quilt. LOL. Love the design and fabrics. It just pops.
I really like your barn quilt and the cake looks yummy to
I am fighting off a cold, babysitting my grandson so my brain is on hold, lol.
All I can thinking of is Barn Dance.
How about "The Rooster Crowed at Midnight". LOL It was a book on an episode of M*A*S*H that they didn't have the end for. They had to call the author to find out "who dun'it". Lovely roosters on your quilt. Love the different poses. Your fruitcake looks delicious. I am the only one in the family who ikes them so I do not bother to cook them. :(
Okay the only thing I can come up with is rather silly..."The Dance of the Albino Rooster" Well your projects are certainly more clever than my answer!
By the light of the Moon - another chance at that tasty looking Cake! Yippee! Pick me! Your quilt is awesome! Thank you for the giveaway!
I love that quilt and this is probably not where you were headed with it but I think the name should be "Where did she go?" That is the first thing I thought of when I saw it, the rooster looks like he is looking for his hen....
Happy Birthday...I would call your quilt "All around the Barnyard"
Love the great quilt! Happy Birthday to you... hope you have had a wonderful day! I'd call the quilt Scratching by the Light of the Moon....might be a bit long!
Love your quilt very creative.
Happy Birthday! Great quilt with the white albino roosters. I say name it "Cluck at the Moon". A play on "Bark at the Moon." Of course, I'm an Ozzy fan...lol I love fruit cake but have never had a home made one...
Happy Birthday. Your rooster cake is lovely. Your cakes sound yummy. Thanks for sharing.
Happy BirthDay my dear, what lovely comments about your mother . I love your quilt with the roosters it is wonderful.
Happy Birthday. I love the black background-it makes the roosters shine! Your photo is great too.
Have Birthday! Love your rooster quilt, really lovely.
My oh my...love your quilt. Your roosters look as though their dancing by the light of the moon. Very lovely!
Whoops! Happy, happy Birthday!
Love those roosters. And Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday! (a little late) Your quilt is fantastic and the picture is wonderful. Both names are wonderful, the only thing I could come up with is Crowing by the "White" of the Moon.
I am a little bit behind with following all the wonderful projects of this hop, but I am still busy sewing for my day.....
Your quilt is wonderful, I like the idea of using black background, it make the roasters so distinct! Great job!!!
Happy Birthday late. Love the rooster quilt and you picture is great.
Happy birthday to a fellow November 'baby;! How about 'Chicken Out'?
Merry Birthday Thearica!!! I hope it was a great day :)
I love your roosters quilt...both of your names sound great but going along with the picture...I like the name Moonlighting in the Barnyard. Have a great weekend!
Happy Birthday. I'm wondering if hubby WAS able to top the flowers off!! Your quilt is so cute and well done. I love the name Moonlighting In The Barnyard. I would never have guessed you'd pasted that rooster into the pic. I recognized a great picture before I'd read about the trick. lol
How about "White Tuxedo Roosters" ?
They look super!
Happy Belated Birthday Thearica! I sure hope your still celebrating because the month isn't over yet. I celebrate my birthday the entire month. : )
Your quilt is absolutely STUNNING! Another choice for a name could be Dancing in the Moonlight or Scratching in the Moonlight.
How about Chicken Love. I do love it. Thanks for sharing
Love that quilt - super albino roosters
PRANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT. Happy Birthday. I REALLY LIKE THIS QUILT. Thanks. New quilter from Oklahoma, USA. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com
E para nomear a tua colcha, que tal CIRANDA DE GALOS! OU MELHOR CIRANDA OF COCKS.
Midnight at the Henhouse.
Midnight Hoe down or Midnight lit boogie. What ever you call it is fine because spectacular is what it is!
Happy Belated Birthday. Jane
"Moondance Beau Coop" ... ;) Pat
Happy Birthday! Love your rooster quilt. It is absolutely wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
Happy Birthday! Your quilt is gorgeous.
I'm playing catch up on the blog posts, so a belated Happy Birthday to you! Your quilt is wonderful. I would call it By The Light Of The Silvery Moon.
I am late but want to wish you a Happy Birthday!
A beautiful quilt. I can see why you want it for yourself.
Happy belated Birthday. What a gorgeous quilt, it is so striking with the black background.
I am so incredibly late getting around for this hop---on deadline, 3 must get done soon items---but now that I am on the binding I hope to check in on all of you! Happy Birthday a week or so late, I am afraid. Love the wall hanging and the lengths you went to get both chickens and a rustic scene in the picture. LOL. Moonlight in the barnyard would work for me!
