Cow Appreciation Day

I saw an ad for Chick-Fil-a the other day that asks people to come to any of their restaurants dressed up like a cow and they would get a free meal. (July 14, next Tuesday) Fun, huh? It reminded me of some Benartex fabrics called Green Farms that I have that are perfect for this.

Two skus from the Green Farms Collection by Benartex
While this is not a new collection, it is from this year. And my mind started planning. Do you think Chick-Fil-a would give me a meal if I came in with a quilt? Hmmmm?

Here are two blocks of the 16 I've already sewn. These are simple cobblestone blocks and will finish to 9". I'll keep you posted.

Block #1 - 4" center square; 2-1/2" outer strips (cut 3")

Block #2
Here is a digital image for my border. This is going to be a very simple quilt which will end up making some little child happy. Will it make Chick-Fil-a happy?

This will be the border for my quilt

  4. This is too funn. Go for the free meal, if the manager is there I bet you will get a free meal. Plus, casually mention your blog and the fact you gave them free publicity. Now, why do I have a clown costume instead of a COW costume?

  6. If there were a Chick-Fil-a on my side of the state let alone in my state, I would try it.

    I love the cow fabric and your little quilt.

  7. Super cute fabrics. Debby ~ all you would need to do is pin some of the quilt blocks to your clothing and you'd probably be good for the free meal next week.
