Today is the Fiberactions quilt reveal day.
Every other month we are given a new word and we have two months to complete a 16 x 20 quilt representing the theme word. This past theme word was Memories.
Check out the Fiberactions site where you can see all of the quilts posted.
A few years ago a group of quilting friends (the sistahs) started a practical joke on me. It revolved around a cow theme. Since, I have recieved countless cow themed items; sent and given to me in sometimes the most unusual ways. The joke started anonymously and sort of snowballed out of control.
I have an entire box of cow related items and fabric....
Some how I acquired the cow face pattern named 'Cow' by Malec Designs.
The pattern is of the cow face only. I customized her and added the background.
I named her Memory and the quilt is named
A tribute to my silly quilting sistahs, who inspire me more than they know.
I started Memory Lane just the other day and finished her today. I would have posted earlier but I couldn't get to the store until tonight...
Memory needed her eyelashes before posting.
I played around with some different methods of fusing and stitching while making Memory Lane.
It was a good learning exercise. I will post later about some of the methods I used.
I think I need to darken the side of Memory's face and nose... she kind of looks like a pig in the photo.
(No, I don't collect cow themed items...!)
