Vintage & Contemporary Lamb Quilt

I loved visiting my aunt in Utah. She lived on a farm and raised lambs. The inspiration for this quilt came from this 1960's lamb fabric. Isn't it so cute?

This lamb fabric came from my mother's stash. I'm guessing it's from around 1965, because it seemed like it was in her fabric closet forever. I used this vintage fabric as my inspiration for creating this original designed baby quilt. The soft, sherpa lambs remind me of "Mary had a little lamb" nursery rhyme. 

I liked the idea of mixing soft textured fabrics with smooth cotton fabrics.  
For one more dimension, I added buttons for the lambs eyes. Do you like vintage fabric?  xoxo Grandma
