Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Saturday, May 25, 2019

On my design wall this week...

While continuing to work on the blocks for the Beothuk Star QAL, hosted by Sandra at mmmquilts, I couldn't resist making more International Sisters blocks!


Some of them are even made from the leftovers of Beothuk Star!


These are a great block for scraps because you can make the headdress, sleeves, and skirt out of a pretty small piece - about 7 x 14 inches at the most - for a 10.5 inch block.  Then you just need a little chunk for the face and hands and some background fabric.  I'm using a piece of Kona White that was left from making my Squared Away blocks, last year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge sampler.

I've had fun working on my sisters in between sewing HSTs for Beothuk Star.  (All the while, listening to the Friendship Album podcasts!)


What will I do with these colorful ladies?  Stay tuned!

You have a very happy design wall going on there! It has been very quiet in my sewing room this weekend, so I'm enjoying other posts and seeing the beautiful sewing going on.

The Quilty Sisters are making the International Sisters famous. Leave no scrap behind :-D
Thank you, Diann, for the shout-out. Looks like your Beothuk Star Quilt is almost there. Have you chosen the backing?
