    That is awesome. Did you follow a pattern or free form it? If a pattern, could we have the name? And, are the dark black defining edges bias strips?

    Thanks so much! It was a pattern just for the shape, everything else is free form -- The pattern is Laura Heine's Abilene -- The black strips are solid black fabric.

    That’s cute! Someone submitted that pattern to our state fair here in Alaska last year.

    That's awesome! Looks like collage is really catching on and you did a fantastic job on yours. I love the colors you used in the whole quilt.

    I love your version of Abilene! I did Laura Heine's Ebba the Seahorse. Just curious, are you selling your copy of the pattern or are you a dealer who sells patterns?

    A true art piece. How fun to use a lowly cow to make such a bold statement.

    Oh quiltymama...what a fantastic job! I see you left off the horns. Did you straight line vertically quilt it...hard to tell in the pic.
    I'm in the process of making this except I want mine to look more like a dairy (Guernsey) cow without horns, so I have lots of caramel golden colors cut just waiting to be steam a seamed. I have a couple of old dairy feed sacks that I plan on using for the background, too. Hopefully get at that project next week. Thanks so much for sharing!
    I just noticed you are new here...welcome to the QB!

    What a great piece of fun art! The first thing I thought when I saw it was "cow-lage". LOL

    Suern, it’s my copy of pattern. I’m not a dealer.

    Oksewglad, wow yours sounds so cool. I love the idea of the dairy feed bags! Can’t wait to see it! I quilted straight lines vertically and then horizontally to make sure most of the little pieces of fabric were caught somewhere beneath a stitch.

    The shop sample I saw when I purchased the pattern had just close vertical stitching for that reason, too.

    Your humble cow is certainly handsome and ever so elegant in her elegant attire. Nice presentation and I am glad that it was fun to do.

    I bought this kit (no pattern) because I wanted the “bug” fabric (by Tim Holtz) that was in the Laura Heinie kit. She did not have any other than what was in the kit. :-). I also have her “fish” pattern. Would sell that one. Beautiful quilt but I did not enjoy the process. To make it easier on myself, I turned this “quilt” into a bed runner. :-)
