The applique cow quilt is finished! Been working on this one off and on for two months. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I decided to sort of "let go" of all the quilter rules and the neat and tidy techniques and just go with it.
Our family room has a a few touches of black and white cow, as you can see ... so you can see where this one might be hanging!
This was my first large scale applique using raw edge and Misty Fuse. Up to this point, I've always turned the edges under. There are quite a few dangling threads on some of the edges and at first, this drove me crazy. Then I decided that this is part of the improv approach, and now I have endorsed those edges!
This pebble quilting on the background might be my favorite part. I also love this tidy quarter-inch binding... and the eye.
I still haven't hit upon an appropriate title for this one. I got a couple suggestions in the last post... waiting for that perfect fit. All I can think of is stealing from advertising slogans, the obvious"Got Milk?", ".... It's What for Dinner!" Or "Eat More Chicken!"
Open to all ideas!
I am linking up to Nina Marie's Off the Wall Fridays. Always an inspiration to see all the art quilts linked up!
