Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Some quilting and a mystery...

The main focus of the past week in my sewing room was to get the layers of my son's Yellow Brick Road quilt basted together, and the quilting started, and I accomplished that!


I'm quilting it in a straight line diagonal grid, which is the easiest for me on a lap size  quilt, so it's actually going pretty fast.  I hope to have it done by the end of this coming week!

But being the type of quilter I am, I needed a few breaks from that kind of sewing here and there during the week, so I got started on cutting out and then sewing for the first clue in Libby, the Hillside Quilter's Magical Mystery Block Quilt-along.

I had bought a fat quarter bundle called Penguins Love Colors from Connecting Threads back in early December, and this project seemed perfect for it.


Libby has a great cutting guide HERE, (Clue #1) for pairs of fat quarters, and each pair will make four 8 inch blocks.  After pairing up my lights and darks, I started the cutting.


I'm going to have fun playing with these bright and happy colors!

Find Clue #2 HERE - and here are my first few sewn up!


Only a little bit of progress made, but I hope to spend some time getting more cutting and Clue #2 sewing done this week, before Clue #3 comes out on Friday.

  5. It's always nice when we get our quilts to the quilting stage. I put it off and put it off because it's my least favorite part. Usually it goes quicker than we think and then wonder why we didn't do it sooner!

  8. I sure love those Grunge fabrics in your son's quilt. It's going to be so great when it's completely finished!

    The penguins are super cute! At first I thought the pink PostIt notes were pieces of fabric, and I thought, hm, that's a bold color choice :)

  12. What fun! And such perfect fabrics for you, my little penguin friend!
    I had grabbed some of those prints from Connecting Threads, too, after you showed off your bundle. The penguins and the dots are just gotta-haves!
