Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

A Sheep Or Three.

Posted on | May 28, 2015 | 16 Comments

This is the last bit of show and tell from the baby collection.

As well as a quilt, I make each grand baby an embroidered woollen blanket.

This time I made one based on the nursery rhyme, Baa Baa Black Sheep.

The design comes from an early copy of Inspirations magazine.

The sheep are made using hundreds of french knots using a combination of 8 ply wool and embroidery floss.

And then all the little flowers are added using wool embroidery threads.

The fabric backing turns over to the front to form the border.

This one should be very warm and snugly.

Cheers, Karen
