Another Cow Quilt

It has been a long time since I posted last.  I'm not actually sure why I stopped blogging, I haven't stopping quilting or creating.  I was looking at my last to-do list I posted.  I think it's time to update it.  Hopefully I've actually finished a few items off the list.  Maybe I'll do a recap of the past two years and update what I've done.

I've started to follow a few different quilters on Instagram.  I really think we should go to a quilt-con sometime.  It looks like it would be inspiring!!  I fell in love with this pattern:

I think this is going to be my end of the school year project!!  It will be interesting to choose fabric for it.  I can't wait!!

Till next time ...

A painting challenge

A friend of my parents asked if I would like to try to paint on a old milk can. This was something that I had not done before. I took on the challenge and here it is.

I decided to use an oval shape to put the picture in and I used Rust-Oleum paint as my base.

I then used carbon paper underneath the picture to trace the design onto the can.

This is the partially finished can.

 This is the finished can.

I sent it home with my parents and haven't heard what she thinks of it.
