    Wallhanging with appliqued sheep. It's got an "old time, Americana" feel to it. It was in a Fons & Porter issue with other Valentine's Day projects.

    I see various quilt projects with chickens from time to time, but does anyone else love sheep like I do?

    If I were to do this again, I would chose a slightly darker fabric for the sheep so there is more contrast against the background.

    Now that is cute!! I love it and I do like sheep. Great job.

    I'm planning one now with hearts in it, probably not sheep though. :-P

    I love sheep also, and as my husband is a pastor sheep have been a fovorite of mine for a long time, I also collect churches.

    I love this quilt. Yes, I love sheep. Raising doggie lambs as a kid is what paid my way through college years later. (I had a smart dad!) My mom is 87 and still has a few sheep.

    That is wonderful. I think all your fabric choices were perfect. Would you like to make me one?

    OMG that is just too, too cute. I love it! The colors you chose are perfect. I think the sheep stand out just fine against the background. I would definitely make this quilt.

    Can you elaborate what applique method you used? Is it fusible or needle turn? I can do fusible but I am really awful at needle turn and I am equally bad with freezer paper method where you press under the seam allowance. I just have so much trouble getting nice clean edges. Once they are turned under for me I have no problem hand appliqueing them on. Fusible I can do very easily and do a satin stitch or blanket stitch around the raw edge. I also love the swag border treatment so let me know how you did that too, if you did it different then the sheep.

    What a lovely band of sheep. The border is exceptional with the banner running around it. This one is just really special, indeed. And yes .. I like sheep too.

    Love it. That little frame around the sheep gives it a 3-D look.

    Thanks everyone. This was in Jan/Feb. 2009 Fons & Porter magazine.
    I used fusible applique for the sheep, hearts, and the swag around the border. :wink:
