    I Wooly Love Ewe

    This is a wall hanging that I put together and quilted (on my Gammill Optimum Plus) for a man who worked for my husband that retired. I was looking for a sheep pattern and JenniePenny came to my rescue and sent me this awesome pattern. I changed the color scheme and left out the red and made it all blue and cream since blue is his favorite color. I also tried my hand at free hand quilting for the first time and I am very pleased with how it turned out and how much fun it was. It was hard to give this quilt away but made it so much easier when the man and his whole family were in such awe and so thankful. It has gone to a great home. We will put it in the fair in the fall and maybe get a ribbon. Thanks for looking and thanks to JenniePenny for the awesome pattern - it was perfect.

    I love it! What pattern did you use? We raise sheep and I think my DH would love a quilt like this.

    That is awesome! The sheep are entirely quilting stitches, no appliquéd fabric? What a special quilt and some good FMQ ideas! Thanks for sharing.

    By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.

    question
    Is it the quilting to give the sheep the 3-D look?

    This was I Wooly Love you - it was published in one of the quilting magazines.
