Quite Mooo-ving

This is my second attempt at embroidery. I think she turned out rather stunning.

I have been inspired by the Martha Stewart Bird Embroidered Quilt. I want to do the same thing but make it a cow theme. I already decided on 6 cow designs that I drew up (this being one of them). The embroidery will be done in a pallet of blues and greens with this silver mixed in. I'll probably use the 6 cow designs 5 times. This will equal the 30 squares needed.

I made this for my mom. I wanted to make sure it would turn out ok. I used a linen-like material found at JoAnns. I wouldn't want to work with it again. It was hard to sew and keep square. I hope real linen handles better.


  1. The idea of a cow quilt is awesome. I actually like the state bird quilt on martha, too. So simple and graphic.

  2. That's a really cool idea. I've been mentally chastising myself for not embroidering enough and considering learning how to quilt, so maybe this is the way to go.

  3. Sorry Sis... didnt mean to ruin the suprise for madre.

  4. oh neat! did you end up finishing it? I want to see the final version!
