    This is a project I finished this winter. I recognize it's a little different subject matter, and certainly not one for everyone to like.

    I started with a photo, enlarged it on a photocopier and drew a 1" grid on it. All the pieces in the pieced version are 1" finished, though each of those might have had several seams if the colours landed that way.

    I took it to be stretched as after all this work, I didn't want to learn on this one, and risk ruining it! It's about 24"x27".

    For comparison, I'm posting both the original photo and my pieced work.

    QuiltE- I like the idea of being an adopted Canuck. This Cow is wonderful. What inspired you to make this particular cow. Was it for a special display like your table runners you were talking about? You have me so curious what you do for a living..LOL I suppose some day I will get around to asking you. Hint Hint. Um well maybe I just did in a round about way. So far the clues are.... you drive around in a truck alot. You have something to do with displays. So far Im thinking some kind of sales.. maybe antiques?

    Here is a drawing of Mikey's girlfriend. Her name is Celia she is a gorgan-like monster. The next character Im going to draw is the Monster called James P. Sullivan aka Sully He is a large blue furry guy.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Wonderful job. That's a special talent to take a photo and then interpret it with fabric like you did.

    Great job. Your rendering is absolutely spot on! It sounds like they did the same thing with this piece as they do with crewel work. I love your cow. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    Jenniky .. Why the cow? I was born and raised and stayed as a dairy farmer til life changed. Honestly, my ♥ is still there! What inspired me? It kind of came as a dare or challenge from someone else! I wasn't about to be proven that I could not do it! As for what do I do? ... someday I'd like to find the answer to that myself. In short, I'll do most anything that's legal and someone will pay me $$ !!! After all, you know variety IS the spice of life .... and I like lots of spice in my life. You're going to have quite a gallery of people in this masterpiece! Great sketch again and quite the
    hot babe"!!! Hope you posted it onto the other thread.

    ... I'm not sure if you're asking me? IF so, it's hanging in my family room along with the original photo. She's also done the show circuit and picked up a red ribbon (first place) at each of the four shows she's been to!

    Or IF you're asking about Jenniky and Celia ... it's in regards to this Challenge ...

    An interesting fact for you ... some Canadian neighbours left here with their Holsteins several years ago, and resettled in your area!

    Thanks for the compliments. Although I'm not sure what you mean in regards to the crewel work?

    Thank you! It certainly was a labour of love ... and with all honesty, in all the things I've done, it's probably the one I'm most proud, because of the detail achieved in replicating the photo.

    Everyone! ... Thanks so much for looking at Miss Mazel and appreciating her. While a cow is not for everyone, I hope it inspires others to perhaps replicate photos of other subjects. I proved ... it CAN be done!

    Wow. I learned something new today. Did not know something like that could be done. It turned out great!!! Looks like the bovine is more important than the homo sapien, huh? lol.

    Those black angus just need some white spots on them!
    Oh go for it ... you might be surprised what you could turn out. While solid black ... I'm thinking you could get some definition in there with your quilting ... just like a "blow job" for the show ring!
    We never had any oils, though lots of professional photos of our own cattle.

    Well, those bovines do produce Nature's most nearly perfect food for we humans!

    Yes, she fits right in with Wisconsin! We attended your big dairy show in Madison several times.
    Oh yes, I am proud of her because she is probably the most challenging thing I've done ... far more than any of my quilts. And too that she is so unique ... like who else has one?

    Cool quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
