Highland Cow Progress

I've been making good progress on my Highland Cow/Cattle Call quilt top. As you might recall, I entered this quilt in the quilt show that will be held at the end of this month. Yup, I entered a quilt I have not yet made. 😬 Here's how it looked last week. Labelling each cut of fabric is a MUST.

Here's a few progress photos.

This quilt goes together very easily. 

Here is my completed top.

And the backing I ordered from Spoonflower. There's quite a good margin around the print, so I will need to work very carefully in order to avoid having unprinted, bright white margins showing on the sides. I believe I have 40" of print from selvedge to selvedge.

I have it in my head that I should custom quilt this (40 x 45) top, but I'm not sure what I'd quilt in the background. Another concern is that this quilt needs to be totally done and have a hanging sleeve attached within the next two weeks. At the moment I'm kind of in "what on earth was I thinking??" mode. I need to finish binding one half of a side of Frolic and attach that hanging sleeve as well as make and attach labels on all three. I'll think on the quilting plan a bit longer while I finish a few more client quilts. 

Speaking of client quilts, I have two of Pat's to show you this week. She chose Starlet for her first quilt.

She picked "The Force" for her Mandalorian/Baby Yoda (Grogu) quilt.

It may seem as though I haven't done much in the past week. That's because I spent some time last week working on a project of my own. Come back Monday to see what I made. It'll be my turn on the Scrappy Improv blog hop and I'm excited to show you my creation.

  1. Ha ha! Entered before you're even done! Isn't he a cutey tho? No wonder you went ahead! Good luck!

  2. I love the highland cow pattern. Did you design it?

  3. I am currently in the cutting stage of this Highland Coo quilt. I'm wondering if you have a pic of your finished quilt? Also, how did you quilt it?
