Michael and I have a wonderful friend named Katie and she and her husband are expecting their first child…..a bouncing, baby girl!!!
Naturally, my first question was “what are your colors and themes”. She knew exactly why I was asking so she smiled sweetly and said “Peach colors and 1950’s Lambs”!!
When I started doing a google search, I kept coming up with tchotchkes like these…..
While they were cute, they weren’t a good design to work from!!
I then remembered the baby quilt that my Mom had made for me….. it had an applique lamb on it…..
….but it was so bady worn that I couldn’t really see any of the details to use it as a pattern!!
WHAT WAS I GOING TO DO????
I had to send an email to our Guild membership about another subject and added a line to it asking if anyone had 1950’s style lamb patterns and several people sent photos and ideas. But Rosie, told me to change my google search to “VINTAGE” lamb patterns. Not only did she put me on the right path for searching, but she also sent a “coloring page” that she had found when she searched…..
I took one look at it and was sure that I didn’t need to search any further!!!
Next step is the background…..come back Wednesday!!!

It’s adorable! I can’t wait to see what you do with it.
I belong to a church quilting ministry. Lutherans baptize babies, and the church gives a quilt or a blanket as a remembrance. Lambs are a theme for the quilts, because the congregation likes to sing “I am Jesus’ Little Lamb” on baptism days.
I can just see it now, and darling it is, too! Looking forward to seeing your rendition of this.
