I am one step further on my snowflake penguin quilt. This is my adaption of a project I spied in the October homespun magazine. ( note to self, time to renew the subscription).
I had fun putting the penguins together, and now I have added the star blocks above them. I decided on a 9 block lay out quite different to the original, but look can you see my sparkly snowflakes.
This is some pretty Christmas fabric, fused into visolfex and cut out with my go baby and simply raw edge appliquéd on. Please forgive my shadow, this is the trouble taking photos at night,
Still need to give these little chap eyes, and unsure if I will embroider them on or use little buttons.
Now for the borders, thinking a skinny red peeper, then a wider navy to frame it and set it off. But before I do the borders, I am working in another row in my new row along quilt, this row is the cocoa cups, fabric cut and tomorrow nights task is the stitching,
Before I go, I want to share with you this lovely message from Quilt designer Leanne Beasley that I found on Facebook.
