Trish and Tweety
Trish and Tweety 29 1/2″ x 40″

Cycling on the back roads of Wisconsin last summer, I spied twin baby Swiss calves and snapped photos of them.  This is my first cow quilt.  Initially, I had created the outline to capture the realistic image of this little babe, but then decided to challenge myself to work more whimsically. 

Inspired by the theme for the MCFA-Madison Contemporary Fiber Artists exhibition “In Living Color”
