Baaa!

I've been plugging along on my Simple Modern Baby Quilt from Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson! After a trip to the quilt shop for more thread, I completed the quilting and also did a little applique.


The pattern includes applique designs for a giraffe, a kitten, a bird, and a dog. But none of those really fit the farm theme this quilt's got going on. So, I drew a little sheep. I used fleece for the head and legs, and a creamy minkee dot for the other parts. I was a little worried about appliqueing the minkee, so I did practice a bit before jumping into the "real" thing. Stitching it ended up being no problem at all. Then I finished it with a little bit of embroidery.

ETA: Happy Saint Patrick's Day! :)
