FINISHED BLOCK SIZE - 9 X 9
Fabric required - 
     Body - One 9.5 x 7.5 rectangle
     Background - Four 2.5 x 2.5 squares
                  One 9.5 x 2.5 rectangle
     Head - One 5 x 6 rectangle
     Legs - Four 3 inch pieces of ribbon (1/4 to 1/2 inch)
 
Use a 1/4 inch for all seams. Place the four background squares in the four corners of the large rectangle. Draw a diagonal line, pay attention to the direction of the lines, stitch and trim. 

 
Measure in 2.5 on both sides of the 9.5 x 2.5 rectangle. Place the four legs inside this area.  Arrange the legs randomly between the measurements. They will hang over both edges of the rectangle.. Sew them into place then trim the legs even with the edges.

 
Trace the head template onto your 5 x 6 rectangle. You can put a 1/4 inch border around and turn the edges or use whatever applique method you prefer. The head can be randomly placed. Sew/applique the head onto the sheep body.

 
Sew the large and small rectangles together. One adorable sheep is ready and waiting for the rest of her flock.
