Introducing Something To Crow About Collection from Benartex

As a Benartex Brand Ambassador, I'm super excited to share one of my latest projects featuring the Something To Crow About collection by David Galchutt with you.  I've named it Barnyard Bliss! 


As some of you know, I'm a Midwest farm gal so any fabric with cows, pigs, sheep, chickens and barns has my attention right away.   For this smaller lap-sized throw, I started my design process with the panel that is part of the collection. 

I squared and used the larger rooster section of the panel for the center area of the quilt and fussy-cut the four barn scenes so they could be pieced as cornerstones for the outer border of the quilt.  

To keep the panel as the focal point of the quilt, I brought in two of the prints from the collection as the other fabrics.  The bright yellow print brings a bit of punch to the quilt and serves as the perfect accent color while the blue print is the grounding neutral. 

Since I live in a rural area with lots of farms, I thought this corn field was the perfect backdrop for the photo shoot! 

Be sure to check with your local quilt shop or favorite online retailer to purchase the Something to Crow About panel and collection.  

I can't wait to see what you make!
