mOO la la!!! Ready for binding!

I decided to fmq this baby quilt in very primitive swirls to mimick the whimsy cow and to keep it poofy for the babe.  At times I wanted to resort back to more precise prtterns and then would just let Roxy go.  I hope you enjoy and encourage you to do a wonky quilt if you are new to fmq and want to have your mistakes and learning curve match the quilt instead of being disappointed or distraught and throw out as I have done before. 






I wonder if I will ever meet the baby that will grow up with this little cow inspiring her to have some silly in her life!  Kinda fun not having a clue about the family that this cow will ship to and wondering what will be the first response as the gift is unwrapped.....

The fun of CELEBRATING! and sharing.
