Mini Wednesday

I'm still dealing with windmills. This time I took Mr. Cowboy's suggestion to place the windmill near a barn.
I chose one of the designs I used in a previous quilt.

I'm always playing around with foreground and backgrounds. The idea was to place the windmill slightly behind the barn & on a slanted hill.

I've used a blue background fabric and turned on the wrong side to mute it even more. As someone said years ago, "It's okay to use the wrong side. You've already paid for it!"

Next I added clouds by fussy cutting shapes from another fabric.

Using crayons, I've shaded in some of the cloud area.

I found, in my stash, a novelty fabric with cows and fussy cut around a few of them. Love it!!

This is pretty cool....but adding those cows!!! THAT really made it special. This is such a cool piece. I might be my most favorite.

If I had just seen the finished piece first, I wouldn't have guessed that the cows weren't there to start with.

Wow, this is great. Each time I think you can't get any better and you prove me wrong. Will you machine applique this? Is the weather vane and windmill spokes and wire holding the fan blades together embroidered on?

As usual, your eye for detail is spot on. It looks just fantastic.

Wow, another wonderful mini! I love the touch of red in the barn, and the detail you get in such tiny pieces.

Don't count the days, make the days count!
