Neocolor II Portrait........Double Take

It is 3:30 and I have time to get started on one more
Portrait Quilt...

We were herding cattle last year.
Moving cow and calf pairs to new pasture.

I came around the corner of the barn and these two turned their heads in unison to look at me.
I was so glad I had my camera in my hands.





At this point the calf has been quilted.
I also quilted the gray, dormant blackberry vines.





Mama Cow is also quilted.
She hates the camera, so I was overjoyed she stood still long enough for the shutter to go off.





I quilted leaves in the green background to give it a bit of texture.



My favorite guy came into the Thread Shed
while I was finishing up this portrait...


He looked at this image and said...

I just viewed your cattle drive in the snow. Awesome. We raise registered Angus cattle in IL. I just love the "Double Take" quilt. I have wanted to do a cow quilt for my husband for a long time but I don't know how to accomplish it with black cattle. They all look the same. lol. Any suggestions?

The cow and calf quilt is just wonderful. When I was on the farm as a kid, new calves were among my very favorite creatures. They smelled so good, and their coats were soft and amazing. You did a wonderful job capturing their personalities.
