    Highland Cow Baby Quilt

    Hi, sorry I've been absent for a while. Busy busy busy, with not a lot of time for quilting. However I was requested to do a baby quilt which had a scottish theme of having some tartan and a highland cow. Well this was a challenge. Trying to find a template for a highland cow ... couldn't find any. So had to get a picture of one that I could adapt. I used batik for the cow hair, and some tartan in the heart. It turned out really well. Andy my customer was delighted. They had a baby show yesterday, so will find out when I go to work tomorrow, how it went.
    Hope you like my attempt at a highland cow.

    You did a great job! I love it! I was trying to get close to see what edging you did around the cow block and then I saw the horns!! Did you use lace or a decorative stitch?

    Thanks for your comment. For the edging I bought some crochet binding, it looks quilt lacy. I did machine stitch the oval onto the quilt, but wanted something to hid the stitching, and it worked a treat.
    Glad you like it.

    Cute quilt! The brown batik "hair" looks real enough and, of course, the tartan heart is adorable. You also taught me something....I'd never heard of a highland cow! lol
