A BIG thanks goes out to Amy at Amy's Creative side for hosting the Blogger's quilt festival. There are several quilt categories you can check out and vote for your favorite quilt This year I am entering the Christmas tree skirt I made for my DIL.
I don't remember what month I started it, but I know I finished on Dec 25th!!! Not last minute I had a few days to go!
I did know how many sheep, but not sure anymore around 20.
The sheep were fun to pick out fabric for. I tried to make them all alittle different.
No purebred sheep here!!
I quilted it with my Good Housekeeper (the brand) sewing machine. It is 42 years old and the only good housekeeper in the house:)
Close up of some of the sheep and the different prints I used.
All the appliques are ironed on with a light fusible and button hole stitched by hand while watching TV!!!
The name of the book is Adoration Quilts by Rachel W. N. Brown. I bought it in 2006 and this is the first and only thing I have made out of it.
I will enter it in the applique quilt category if you want to vote for it:) You can find it hereBlogger's Quilt Festival The quick links to each category are listed are listed right before the sign for the festival. I am in the applique category.

These are a few of the other quilts, pillows, bibs, totes, aprons, ect I have made over the last year or so.
My other hobby is taking pictures of our animals!
