I still have some Milk Cow Kitchen fabric that I am using up. Today I made a quilted square that I use to put under hot dishes.

Not the best choice of fabric combinations because I'm using what I have left over. But they do make nice squares for hot dishes placed on the table.

It's been good for me. When I sew I have to focus and that takes my mind off pain. Keeping busy is my treatment of choice. ;)

That's for sure, and I don't plan on moving. Always something to do. Never gets monotonous or boring. Sometimes the cows get out. Lol.

Thank you. If done with contrasting fabric like it should be then you see the sawtooth quilt blocks more plainly. But I was using up some scraps I have left over and put to use. Could use any large quilt block and if you add a thermal layer you could even use as pot holders. Add a loop and wha-la.

Me too. They can be tedious little things, but it makes for a cool looking quilt. This top is finished and ready for the quilt rack. Several blocks with saw tooth in them.I guess I will try and work on piecing or quilt today, seeing how it's duck weather. Put on "Milk Cow Blues" sung by George Strait. Lol

It's lovely to see how the same pattern can be made to look completely different based on your fabric choices. You have a beautiful eye for quilt creations. When I was younger, my grandma taught me how to quilt and I really enjoyed it. Maybe when life settles down and more kids are grown I'll be able to pick it back up again. I did make baby quilts for each of my babies but that's where it stopped. This is an inspiration for me!

I hope so too Charlene. It's like a good friend and it gives me comfort and a sort of tonic that keeps me going. It keeps me focused, disciplined and gives some time for reflection. Chores do the same thing, milking the cows. Makes me happy. My grandmother is the one who taught me many years ago, quilting, gardening and choring. I've made so many I can't even guess, but many. Most of them given away to homes I don't know where. Hope they bring warmth, joy and comfort to those they've gone to. And I hope I have a few more in me before my eyes get weak. It's been a pass time when things got rough, through cold winters, hot summers, quiet autumns, and very wet springs. :)
