    Too cute! I have this book. I might have to get bold and give it a try.

  3. This is a really fun idea. It would be great to see these quilts at some events during June Dairy Month.

    What a fun idea! Everyone was so creative … Irish Crème even.
    I find it interesting that each cow is facing the same direction … and no full on faces.
    Was that in the rules?

      I’m not sure of the rules. I do know that they had to stick “close” to the pattern idea in the book…..with some minor variations. Glad you enjoyed your “visit”!!! Hugs…………..
