I made this a couple weeks ago, another gift for my grandparents.
The image is the sign from their farm back in the day, as you can see, they ran an Angus farm!

Here it is:



and the back:



This was my one of my first tries at quilting, and I'm pretty happy with the way it came out! Though it is a bit lopsided...

Love it!  That muddy turquise and green are my current favourite colours!

That's such a thoughtful idea.  How did you get the image on the fabric?  My grandparents had an antique/woodworking shop for years, and I'd really like to make something similar for them with their shop name. 

I'm sure your grandparents loved it!

I just used regular, iron-on transfers by Avery. I got them at Staples, so nothing special  Wink I would love to see yours when you are done!

oh wow, I love it!  My husband loves cattle! How did you finish it? I'm still trying to get mine to look that good!

Actually, finishing it wasn't that hard!
I put the two pieces (front and back) right sides together, sewed around leaving an opening, flipped it right side out, and sewed around the edges. This is probably not the right way to do it, but that's what I didm anyways! I was too lazy to poke the corners out perfectly, which is why it's a bit crooked.
Good luck on yours!
