Yet Another Not-Recently-Finished Quilt: Madeline's Lamb Quilt

 In November 2010 (yes, over 2 years ago), I pieced a top.   In May 2011, I quilted it for a new baby in the family.    Due to my extreme talent in procrastination, the webpage for this quilt wasn't made until *just this very minute*!

I'm almost (but not quite) embarrassed at how easy this quilt was to make.  Granted, it started with a pre-printed panel (that's not heretical, is it?) but I did add on a wonderful pieced dogtooth border that fit exactly.  Boy, was I proud of myself with that!

I used Darlene Epp's Pocket Guide to Freehanding (wonderful, wonderful series of books; highly recommended) for the background embellished meander.  I did some nifty little swirly things in the lambs' fleece.  I SITD all the big motifs of the panel and quilted some (almost) good looking hearts in the dogtooth border.   Free-motion hearts that look symmetrical and great require great talent and skill .. neither of which I possess.  (I also didn't want to devote *that much time* to use a template. 

  I'm just that lazy.)

The resultant quilt was just too cute for words. :-)

Therefore, I give you Madeline's Lamb quilt ... for the newest member (AT THE TIME) of the Rodgers/Shehu family. (We have another newer member, this time of the Jansky branch ... but, yeah .. that quilt doesn't have a webpage yet either. Patience, young grasshopper ... all things comes to he who waits.)

Those pictures are just teasers! For all the gory details, links and more pictures, please visit my web page for Madeline's Lamb quilt.
