Quiltmaker magazine calls it "Sheep Shape"!
Yes, I was a little "Sheepish" (<< see that story) when I discovered that it was the Covergirl!!!
And, yes, I may have lurked in the grocery store for a few extra minutes when I saw it on the rack! By the way, it's still on newsstands, or available online at Quiltmaker.com.
It was at last year's Quilt Market in Portland that the gals from Quiltmaker spied my little Hexie Meadow quilt. I was using it to demonstrate my "Hexagami" make & take dimensional flowers at the Riley Blake Designs' booth, when they invited me to submit the quilt for a future edition.
I quilted swirls for the sheep's wool, meandering swirls and loops for the sky and a meandering zig-zag for the grass. I used Cuddle faux fur for the backing, and the big, loose quilting will allow the loft to come through for a soft, cuddly baby quilt. (Now, all I need are grandbabies!)
Right now, the quilt is just wrapping up a trip to Quilt Market in Pittsburgh. Can't wait to see her again!
