    I designed and made this quilt about our farm in PA a few years ago for our grandson. There is a 3D element in each block, like the cows ears and the pig's bow tie. I didn't just use cottons, I used velvets, fabrics that crinkle and some that shine too.

    Your grandson is so adorable. He seems to really love his quilt. I love the fact that you used different fabrics.

    As we would say in Maine,.... that's 'wicked cute'!!!! My hubby and I are looking to buy a farm in Maine, very close to where I grew up! Kinda the reverse of what everyone else wants to do...! Hard to be a farm girl in my late 40s! (I'd so rather be doing quilts!).

    Looks awesome....especially with the handsome young man standing next to it!
