Out like a Lamb?

Today I am sharing the second block I have made from the Farmgirl vintage series.

A Lamb.

I couldn’t resist this one for my March post.  They say that if March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb.  I sure hope we are not going to experience the flip side of that coin!

It is March 6th, and I am sitting in my office at 7 PM with 66 degree weather.  We have had the windows open all day!

I pulled the grass and the body fabric from grandma’s stash, but couldn’t resist using some little scraps of a modern print in the sheep face and ears.   The pattern calls for the head to be one large rectangle.  My pieces were too small, so I put together a four patch, then trimmed it to the correct size.  This will be a great way to use some of my smaller scraps in the construction. 

The legs are hand embroidered using a backstitch, and the eyes are a cross-stitch, just like the chick was in February.

What will the Farmgirl do in April?   I have an idea of the farming I might do in April…   I can hardly wait to get my hands dirty!

What are your suggestions?  I would love to hear from you!

Also,  did I mention that my mom liked the looks of my new pattern so much, she couldn’t resist ordering it during our visit to Prairie Point Quilt Shop last weekend!  She will probably have this one finished before me!
