Have you ever made a quilt with a realistic animal on it? If I tried, I'm not sure the animal would be recognizable. I'm impressed how quilters can capture an animal's expression and mood! Here are some of the animal quilts from the Houston Quilt Festival.

Bookends by Kim ?
(I'm sorry I can't give credit but the photo of the paper with the quilter's name is too blurry for me to read. Does anyone know her name?)
Unforgiven by Laurie Russman
Uh, oh. We put bows on our cats' heads every Christmas morning. Now I'm going to be wondering if I'm forgiven!
All in the Family by Nancy Brown
Seneca by Ferret
Identity Crisis by Susan Engler
I grew up on a farm so seeing this calf brought many memories of bottle and bucket feeding calves back to me. Calves have the longest eyelashes!
I'm bracing for tomorrow's weather which is predicted to be 30 degrees colder than today! Shiver. The best thing about cold weather is its quilting weather!
Until next time, Mayleen
