Hereford Quilt

Here is what I am working on for a lady for Christmas.  
This is for her grandson . . .he loves Herefords!
I am going to use a huge block of the fabric in the quilt center and made 30 fancy cuts for smaller blocks. 
When she asked me if I had ever seen any Hereford fabric, I said no, most "cow" fabric is black and white.

 . . . and I wondered, come on, why is that?  I was raised on a cattle ranch that was populated by Herefords!  We certainly didn't have any black and white cattle hanging around--even our old milk cow was a Guernsey when I was a kid!

Imagine my excitement when I found a yard of this on eBay and traced it to the manufacturer and was able to order 5 yards!  I know that's fabric over-kill for a 75 x 84 quilt, but I now I can say I have it on the shelf!
You have no idea how tempting it was to order the whole bolt.

I will post progress as I go . . .

Yee Haw!

Can't wait to see the quilt. I made 2 with that fabric and panel that goes with it. They were for 2 of my grandsons. They are on my blog.

My grandfather had herefords on his farm. YUM! We got a side of beef every year. They make me hungry.
