    Smile Farm Themed Quilt for Fund Raiser

    The local Holstein Club has a silent auction at their annual banquet each year. I put together this simple quilt to donate to them. My brother ended up being the high bidder

    Great quilt MamaB !!!

    I'm sure that it was a popular item during the bidding time.
    Next a Jersey for the other family affiliations?

    I have found some very nice Jersey Photos on fabric that are now in the stash until I come up with the right plan for them :-)

    Great!
    Fabric with Jerseys printed on it? ......... or did you print some IRL Jerseys onto the fabric?
    Now onwards to finding some Ayrshires too?

    I had ordered them from a store called "The Lonesome Pet" off of ebay. They don't seem to have Jerseys right now, but still have Holsteins and lots of dog and cat breeds.

    Nicely done! It's fun to make a quilt that someone appreciates!
    QuiltE looks for Jerseys--I look for Guernseys. I think Brown Swiss are even harder to find.
    Don't worry spider.
