Counting sheep

You are tired, stressed or have difficulties falling asleep.
What about Counting sheep?
Imagine this is a quilt laying on your lap.Have a short nap or sleep the whole night and dream.

This is a simple combination of sheep patterns, number pack pattern and my newest paper pieced pattern The BED.
The Fence paper pieced block is FREE. You could download from CRAFTSY or from my free patterns HERE.
The idea is sewing background of each sheep the same color as the top of the quilt. The sheep are , but you can change the size using included percentage table.
The numbers are 3 inch squares, some of them rotated 45 degrees.

Add two 3" squares, two  4" isosceles triangles and trim to have 6 inch squares and sew easy next to the sheep.
Add 1,5" strips to have 6 inch squares and sew easy next to the sheep.

Collect all the blocks, add batting and backing, bind you preferred way.

Have a sweet dreams :)

Do you think that bell of the third sheep is ringing too loud?
Don't worry . This pattern has two version - with or without bell. It is up to you.
