I’m taking part in the Pantone Quilt Challenge this year. The colour for 2018 is Ultra Violet (a rich blue purple) and as soon as it was announced I thought of the Highland Cow in Juliet van der Heijden’s Animal Quilts.
And here she is!
I’ve used gold Essex Linen for the background – you can see it sparkle at the top of this photo.
She took a while, but lots of fun to make. Here is the back, with all my planning scribbles.
I’m thinking about adding a wide border, using strip piecing for a mosaic effect. Haven’t tried it yet, so fingers crossed it works.
The details of this pattern are lovely – just look at those nostrils!
