The Process of My Cow Quilt
OK.... let me start by saying I am not sure what I was thinking.
Someone gave me a stack of pre-cut cows to use for quilting.
These have been sitting in my sewing room for over 2 years.
Every time I am looking through my stash I find the cows and wonder "What in the world am I going to do with these?"
I HATE to throw out fabric, so I would look at them and then put them back in the fabric stash.
Well, while working on my Quilted Hugs Project I decided to use the cows.
I pulled them out and refused to put them back.
I MUST FIND A USE FOR THESE!!
This is what I came up with...
Before I added the scrappy half-square triangles the grass didn't look right.
I was trying to figure out how to use up my scraps and I had both the green and blue strips already cut, so... I added them to either side.
Now when I quilt this I will add tails to the cows, clouds in the sky, and texture in the grass.
I am glad they were finally used.
It added another quilt top to my Quilted Hugs Project!
I will need to count my quilts this week to see how many I have finished and how many more I need to make!
