Vintage & Contemporary Lamb Quilt

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.  
I wonder which grandchild of mine will get this baby quilt?
Do you like vintage fabric?
