May Flowers Cow - Design Board Monday

So after sitting on my design board for months, May Cow is now completely sewn down.  I'm happy with it and like the perspective and depth the block has.  Also, I like that this is the 6th cow done so I'm half way through!!  Yay!  Picking up this project I had to remember what style of stitching I was doing and what my machine was set on (zigzag 1.0 1.0).  Its not my usual style to work on several projects at once, but it seems I'm trying to juggle a few this summer.
I really need to get out my sketch book and see what the next cow is.  I had them all laid out  in a traditional set.  I want to do the  quilt as you go method so we'll see how that goes.  Also I lost all my inspirational cow pictures when my computer crashed in December - so gotta sit and fill up a folder of those again - sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. 
With all that though - this project really does grow on you. I find it very satisfying to complete one 16" block at a time. 
More design walls can be seen here!

Love this block. It makes me miss my cows. I loved watching the babies frolicking around. That would make a cute block if you haven't done one like it yet.

Cows and Kittens are a wonderful combination. The cow is great and I would love to see more of that series. Thanks for sharing.

Love your cow quilt block. Matter of fact, I browsed a few of your last posts and all your projects are beautiful. I haven't made too many pictorial quilts and you are a great inspiration.

Your cow reminds me of "Daisy," the cow that the Pioneer Woman writes about in her "Confessions" blog. Daisy eats her begonias.

If your cow is eating daisies, is her name Begonia? ;)

First time here - and I love your latest cow! Had to check the other calendar cows as well. Too cute! Is this a special pattern or BOM or made up by you? I am in the cow business myself ( in leather that is, so we're talking 'Cow afterlife" ) and anything cow goes for me ;)
