The photographs were beautiful, but I found this one especially appealing:
Someone took the trouble to either paint or arrange the roof shingles in the shape of a cow - What creativity! The article didn't give any details about the photo, but I suspect this was on a dairy farm.
As a quilter, I envisioned a quilt made in this design:
It would simply be squares, arranged and set on point. I imagine a blue sky, green grass, and a black and white cow. To be more interesting, I'd make is controlled-scrappy, using squares of the same general color but of different patterns and prints.
There's inspiration everywhere!
