Default Sheep Pattern

My hubby works with a man who will be retiring soon. This man is a preacher and loves sheep. I want to make a wall hanging for him but I am having a hard time finding a pattern. Any of you lovely folks have any suggestions - I am at the point that I will probably just make one but I would rather not have to deal with that as I always end up not buying enough fabric when I do that. Thanks in advance. -Jen

Use white fleece for sheep and sew onto fabric in shape of body so that the stitches make the shape, then cut close to stitches. Embellish. Put them in a field or make a picket fence around them?

I used an old coloring book with a pattern of a sheep - did mine in white fleece on another color background, did sashing in between.

Here is one I made a few years ago. I do still have the magazine that the pattern came from, if you're interested.

Mine is a UFO from 1999! Yes 1999 but I am doing wiskers as we speak. Yahoo! The Lion and the Lamb: http://www.quiltingboard.com/members...38-331106.html

If you google "sheep quilt" and look at the images you will see lots of appropriate quilts. Here is one I like - http://www.pelennapatchworks.co.uk/w...x-15-445-p.asp

Here's my Sheep quilt ...
http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t172511.html

While mine is with a Christmas theme, some of my friends did the same pattern, just using sheep, no shepherd.
Post #7 has the pattern details.

It's an easy pattern to make and works up very quickly.

If you know anyone with an accuquilt they have a sheep die. It's really cute. I made it for my grandson.
