FREE Pattern Feature – Barnyard Calf Panel Quilt

We have a fabulous FREE PATTERN to share with you today. The Barnyard Calf Panel Quilt is as stunning to look at as it is simple to make. You are going to LOVE this!

The center panel features the gorgeous calf panel, digitally printed to preserve every color and brush stroke in this brilliant painting.

You won’t believe the detail captured here! Take a look at those eyelashes and the subtle highlights around the eyes.

The panel is bordered by Riley Blake Confetti Cotton, Slate Gray Shades Basics, and Hold Your Horses Gray Fence. It’s as simple as that. Three easy borders and the quilt top is done!

Many quilters are nervous about quilting over beautiful panels like these. We hope to put those fears to rest. Here is a close up of the geometric quilting design that covers the entire quilt. It was done in a dark gray thread – including all over the white calf face. Sounds scary, right?

Now here is a look from just a few feet away. Notice how the quilting adds a lovely texture without taking away from the art. Our brain knows to focus on the calf and to let the overall quilting design fade to the background. Beautiful! Download the FREE PATTERN to get started on your very own Barnyard Calf Panel Quilt!
