July Cow - God Bless America

I'm quite please with July Cow.  I had her in my head and when I was done this morning, there she was.  Its always nice when that happens!  For this block, I made even a smaller zig zag which worked out really nice.  I think I'll use it on the rest of the blocks.  

The block is equally traditionally pieced and fabric collaged together.  Its nice to know that I remember how to draft and get the piecing done without much effort.  With all the art quilting lately, I would hate to lose touch with my roots LOL!

She uses mostly commerical fabric with a little bit of hand dyed and took 5 hours from design to finish.  Now onto October!

The quilt is going to be soooo wonderful! When it is completed, please post a picture. Hope you get a picture of your daughter as she sees it for the first time.

Very cool idea to make a moo calendar quilt. Your daughter will treasure it forever. Can't wait to see the finished work of art.

Dear Nina-Marie,

Love the style you've developed for the cows--it's very sophisticated.

I also loved your daughter's Halloween portrait. What a lucky girl to have parents who respect and support her dreams!

Your cow quilt is really coming out nice. What a great idea and what a lucky little girl. I remember those long ago days of making quilts for my little boy. He turned 32 this week. sigh.....
