I found a pattern a few years ago at a thrift store for these stuffed sheep with quilt block sides. The pattern was 25 cents, so I bought it thinking I'd give it a try in CQ. Took the directions out when I got home and was completely boggled by them. There were extra pieces to be cut for the shoulder and legs that just didn't make sense to me. I put it away thinking I'd read through it again later and maybe it would make more sense.
Well, I took it out again recently and it still boggled my brain, but this time I left it out and read through them again a few days later. Still not clicking. Then I decided to just take the ram by the horns and start cutting out the pattern pieces. A few more days go by and suddenly it clicked. The "extra" pieces were to make the traditional square quilt block become the sheep-shaped pieces they needed to be...AND since I wasn't limited to making a square CQ block, I could cut a foundation piece that incorporated the sides and the extra shoulder and leg pieces all in one.
So that's what I have so far. They'll be embellished in spring pastels with probably fleece used for the head of the sheep.
