Pink Penguins with Bow Ties

While rummaging through my stash this week to find some pinks for a few bow tie blocks, I found this -

So Cute!!! 

I completely forgot that I had bought a 1/2 yard of these pink penguins at my favorite LQS while shopping with LeeAnna of Not Afraid of Color way last March, and then put it away on the shelf with the rest of the pink when I got home.


I had to make a pink bow tie block out of a bit of it, and then made a few more to go with it.


My collection of bow tie blocks is coming along!



In other scrappy sewing this week, I started to sew groups of four Dancing Monkeys together.


It's always fun to revisit your favorite blocks as they go into the quilt.  This bunch has some Christmas penguins, Halloween cats, Kaffe fabric, and watermelon colors of pink and green.  I like how they're coming together even though I just noticed that there is some monkey business going on up in that green and purple one!  Lol!

    Monkeys are always up to their elbows in monkey business - don't take your eyes off them for a second!

  13. Took me a while to find that oops - although I kind of like it that way - makes it unique! The penguins look so happy in their block.

  14. Glad to see,those monkeys back again, up to their old tricks. Pink penguins are ideal. The fleece backing on my recent Project Linus finish is also pink penguins. They just beg to go home with me.
