I spent much of today in the company of some COW friends, sewing down at the church. Each of us brought her own project to work on and we combined forces for lunch. I made these five six-inch blocks for my second "Farmer's Wife" quilt. I use the quotes because I'm following that pattern's general idea, but using blocks I enjoy making without templates.
I took my Featherweight rather than the Bernina today because I need to get some experience using it. It is so much easier to haul around. I had at least three Featherweight experts there to help me with questions. It was a terrific day, and this pile of blocks is growing, growing, growing.
These two terrific cow blocks arrove during the past week. Gari's Cow Quintet meandered all the way up here from Alabama, and Fitzy's amazing cow came from Out West. Aren't they splendid?
I'm well aware that I owe some people some goodies in exchange for the cows, and I hope to fulfill these obligations before June is out. I have one more week of full-time work and then the blessed summer hours (8-1 rather than 8-4) begin!
