Cattle Call

The darling Highland Cow was made by Reneta.  Reneta is a pattern tester for Art East Quilt Company, and this is one of their latest releases called "Cattle Call."

I quilt a lot of quilts for Reneta and every once in awhile she like to challenge my creativity.  (Check out song lyrics, martini glasses, mice and glass slippers, butterfliesa world map....).  This time she suggested that we amp up the Sottish flair of this quilt and give "Angus the Cow" a Scottish Thistle.

I found a great tutorial at Lori Kennedy quilts for a thistle, so I didn't have to think about how to do it,  and I think it worked out perfectly.

The wavy lines were quilted across the whole quilt first in So Fine thread, and the thistle was added last with a slightly heavier and shinier Magnifico thread.

Is this not one of the cutest quilts you have seen in awhile??
