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.)
