Cows and quilts......JMF

 The cows are in the calving pasture and cow town is set up:)
 We found a couple new calves the other night when I went along with Greg to check.
 I noticed this when Greg was shutting the gate and had time for one quick shot. It's a mile or more away so not the best quality pic.
  I made these two quilts  for Lucas.  The one above is his new bed quilt. It is the same Fons and Porter pattern I have made a few times before. The surrounding blocks Lucas picked out from my wildlife/hunting tote of fabric. I have 3 of 7 quilts done for the grandkids. I have a good start on the 4th one, and know what I'm making for the other 3.
 He loves baseball and I saw this on Pinterst so that was a good enough excuse for me! I had a found a big enough piece of cream colored fabric add some red and the rest is history:) I did cut bias strips to make the stitching and hand appliqued on.  I used a basketball fleece on the back.
Spring my favorite time of year..................................JMF

I sure like your quilt. It's beautiful! I have always wanted to make something like this for my hubby. They are great fabrics and your black sets them off. I bet you like Holly Taylor fabrics as much as I do. Congratulations on a job well done. And the cows are nice too.
