Vogart Embroidered Lambs Quilt

As I was looking through my new book, Childhood Treasures: Doll Quilts By and For Children (2008) by Merikay Waldvogel, I came across this quilt.

and I was so happy because look what I have.

The blocks are older (1932) than I thought, and I was so lucky to find them without any stitching, because I want to do that myself. The maker of this quilt didn’t bother cutting the blocks apart, but just used a running stitch on the cutting lines. I’ll add sashing or alternate blocks to mine.

Now, if I could only find a backing fabric as cute as the one in the book. Maybe I’ll have to start searching for a vintage lamb print.
