And now, Pink Cow!

 I am continuing the cow series for my RSC2015 (click here) and thankfully the color this month is pink.
I like pink.
I like cows.
I now like pink cows! But when you pull out little scraps of florals they don't always look like they will in the finished project, for instance the sides of my girl's face are a bit mauve. I thought, what if I put a little heart ornament on her forehead??
It's not permanent, just sticking there for a picture. I will likely remove it but still...kind of like it.
 She seems to require long eyelashes as well.
In the quilting I think.

Here she is with Blue cow. Adorable. I kind of imagine them with the sashing, very Warhol-like.
You can't tell from there but her mouth is little heart fabric.
All from the pink scrap bin and white scrap bin.
The pattern was as challenging as I remembered. See the post on Blue cow(click here)  for the pattern source.

  1. I like the heart. Keep it! Gives her a little bling to go with her to-be-quilted eyelashes. :) www.quiltartbymegan.com

  3. And she needs some earrings too! Can never have enough bling, even if you're a cow!

  4. No sashing, just cows . . . and I like her better without the heart on her forehead.

  18. Just love your cow gals--they are very moo-ving!1 Hahaha...Seriously, they are just adorable. My DH thinks cows are funny --I should make him a cow quilt...hugs, Julierose

  19. Love 'em both... although I'm more partial to pink. She is definitely pretty in pink... (How about earrings? Farmers use ear tags now, so earrings aren't so far fetched.)
    Hugs

  23. Love the pink cow! Can't wait for a purple one. ;- )

    Definitely long lashes; I don't think she needs the heart on her forehead.

  34. This cow is so cute. Is the pattern available?

    ReplyDelete
  35. She is one pretty lady. More extrovert than her blue friend, I think. But they sure make a lovely pair!

  37. I love your cows in pink and blue. They have such wonderful personalities or should that be cowalities. Thank you sew very much for linking...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes! Those are such pretty cow blocks, LeeAnna! Love the pink daisies you used for the strip down the middle of her nose. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the herd as the months go along!

    ReplyDelete
  39. That's a love cow if I ever saw one! I love the blue one, too!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love the heart ornament! I didn't think the sides of her face were mauve; it all looked awesome. What awesome blocks for the challenge. I'm thinking I should jump in on this yet! I have farmer relatives...

    ReplyDelete
  41. how cute is that?!? (I love the addition of the heart!)

    ReplyDelete
  42. That pink cow is the cutest cow I have ever seen! Put a big smile on my face,

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh I LOVE these cows! I am a rancher in Texas and have been thinking I wanted to try something like this and now I HAVE to. Great idea, so glad you shared.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the pink cow (ok, and the blue one too!) I think the pink heart adds character. I can tell you're having fun.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Aw, love the colorful cows! Isn't it interesting how colors change depending what you put them with? I have that same "mauve" fabric and am always surprised at how different it can look. It works well with the other fabrics on your cow. I'm smiling just picturing the eyelashes.

  46. Those are ridiculously adorable. I am a novice quilter. I would love to think I would try something like that one day :)
