Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Penguins Love Green!

This week I spent some time cutting a little more, sewing a little more, and organizing for Libby's Magical Mystery Block QAL.

These penguins have hats!

I sewed the little penguin 2.5 x 4.5 rectangles into their Block A and Block B selves.


And made some 4.5 inch HSTs from the 5 inch squares that I've cut so far.



Finally, I bagged up all the cut and sewn pieces and stashed everything in one of my now-empty project boxes. (That means I finished a quilt - yay!  But more about that another day!)


I also managed one of this month's Squared Away blocks in green for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge sampler.


This was a fun one to put together, and I only needed my seam ripper a couple times, lol!  I kept turning those corner pieces wrong and didn't notice until a seam had been sewn.  But all's well that ends well!  I plan to make one more of these in light greens before month's end.
