Ultra Violet the highland cow

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!
