This delightful nursery set is named for an old English sheep-counting rhyme for lulling babies to sleep. It's a great way to teach the parable of the lost sheep. Sample shown is made using Michael Miller's Fairy Frost and Mirror Ball Dot. The white sheep bodies use Fairy Frost "Glow-In-The- Dark" cotton, so when the lights go out the sheep are still visible.

Growing up in the Canadian Maritimes, I was surrounded by quilts from an early age. My grandmother was particularly talented and taught quilting locally. I learned from her and have made quilting my life's work. Since 1989, I have published well over 300 quilting patterns in magazines, contributed designs to 16 different books, and am author of two books: Quilting Beauties (AQS), and Canadian Heritage Quilting.
