Holstein Cow Quilt?

Imagine a quilt with a Holstein Cow, colors of black, white and hot pink!

Well I’m sure this quilt wouldn’t be for everyone but kids love animals and I grew up on a big dairy farm so it brought back lots of happy memories.  So I made this one for my granddaughter, Ryleigh.   We had a shopping day together at the quilt shops and found this quilt and the elephant quilt (previous post).  She fell in love with the cow quilt and said she wanted it.  So being a sneaky grandma I bought both kits that day and planned on giving them to them for their birthdays. Decision was made, what to do for their birthdays, was made.

The pattern is called “Clara” by Custom Creations, CC-218. Instead of a black cuddle tail she wanted a yarn one with a ribbon.  Otherwise I made it like the pattern.

There’s not been one person that hasn’t liked these quilts after they first touch them.  Ryleigh showed her Dad the quilt and her brother laid on it and said Grandma I want one of these quilts but not pink or a cow.  I want it with a big “GB” (Green Bay) and colors green and yellow.  Hum!  Sounds like a great idea for another soft project.  Some day!
Have you tried making a quilt with the cuddle/dimple material?  Share your ideas and if you have comments they are always welcome.

The weather has changed here in Kansas, finally not 3 digit temperatures.  This last week and over the weekend we enjoyed 80’s and 90’s and it feels so much better.  Is  Fall time here?  It’s been fun sewing in the sewing room with the windows open and feeling the cool air.  We have welcomed the change.  Now if we could only get some rain.  Still in drought conditions but as they say “one day closer to the rain!”

Keep creating and sewing, have a great week,
