EQ Appliqued Animals Blog hop Thursday

EQAppAniBlogHop
Here’s Thursday Schedule for the Appliqued Animals Blog Hop
Thursday April 25th
Beaquilter (Summer Animals)
Janesquilting (Critters and Bugs)
Seamstobesew (Summer Stuff)
 
Today I’m showing you a summer animal.
I had this idea for a cow! I mean what’s more summer than the smell of cows, no just kidding!
 
I started with some basic ovals for the head and mouth (what’s that called on a cow again?) and then a curve at the bottom and a line connecting the sides.

I like the “funky” shapes on the side bar, one is a tear drop so I used that for the horns, then another is a wedge shape that was great for the ears

Here’s the basic face of a cow

Of course I had to add some eyes too.

And made a second set smaller for the pupils

Then added some ovals for the nostrils

That cow block made me smile! Another great baby quilt idea, thanks!

Gene Black said...

Okay, I confess, I always think of cows as summer animals. In the summer I see them in the fields much more than in the winter where they obviously hide and huddle together.

Connie said...

I love cows, we raised them on our farm. Sometimes I miss that, but driving around and seeing them in pastures gives me the great feeling I get from them. They are beautiful majestic animals. Love to win a copy of this software so I can create my own designs. Thanks for the review and giveaway.
