Chicken Quilt

I am supposed to be working on a commissioned piece for an auction this summer.  My problem is I have ideas, just too many of them.

I know I need to just start and see where it leads.  The company requested a Chicken theme and a center applique medallion.  The focus fabric to the left is my inspiration piece.  I bought the bolt so it may be the back too!

Original thought was to do a Stack and Whack blocks border.  I think the focus fabric will look pretty neat 'spinning' around.  Then I considered if I am going to layer and cut to do something unexpected like Dresden Plates or Fans.

I am curious to see how this heirloom piece turns out.  I hope to surprise myself with the final piece.
