Chicken scratch embroidery was common during the 30's and 40's as a simple way to embellish basic check fabrics. You can still find it today on many vintage aprons and table linens from that era. Chicken scratch is also sometimes known as Depression Lace and can be simple as in our pattern here or very complex. Research this in online images if you would like to see lots of different examples.
Our pattern here uses 2 of the 5" charm packs and 2 fat quarters of any "mini buffalo" fabric. It is constructed in the basic rag quilt block style but with a chicken scratch embroidered insert on both ends. The size of this table runner as shown is approximately 15" x 43" but the size can easily be adjusted by adding more squares. This easy level pattern includes detailed step by step instructions along with color closeup photos of both the quilting process and the chicken scratch embroidery.
