What on earth was I thinking????

These are the 3 blocks I've finished from the McKenna Ryan art quilt I'm making. There are 5 more blocks left to make. I don't know what came over me when I decided to tackle this one? The house block was the first to arrive and very daunting! I did that second. Everything is appliqued and I just know that once I've finished this I will never ever want to applique anything ever again!!

I am having problems uploading any more pics, so you'll have to wait until tomorrow.
In the mean time - Why did the chicken cross the road?
Dr Phil: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes to the other side of the road...
Oprah: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road. So that is why I'm going to give this chicken a car, so he can just drive across the road...
George W Bush: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road, we just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not...
Colin Powell: Now to the left of the screen you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road...
Dr Seuss: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told...
Ernest Hemingway: To die in the rain. Alone.
Grandpa: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road and that was good enough...
John Lennon: Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace...
Aristotle: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road...
Bill Gates: I have just released eChicken2007, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook...
Albert Einstein: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?
Bill Clinton: I did not cross the road with THAT chicken!
Colonel Sanders: Did I miss one?
