    Default Penguin! She LOVES it!



    I took quite a few pictures but found out Al has used my camera and had it set for macro so none of my pictures were worthy of posting. This is the best one and Em loves her quilt.

    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    That turned out so cute! It looks like it is pretty big as well.

    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    Final size - 70x94 inches. And, it's 'thicker' now.

    Sandy, that penguin is as cute as can be. You put a lot of time in stitching it too. I see why your granddaughter loves it so.

    Mary, the eyes are the same fabric used in some of the outlines. I just cut circles and appliqued them on with machine quilting stitches.

    The binding was sewn on the backside and then I used a quilting stitch (similar to a blanket stitch) that is built into my embroidery machine. I was going to hand-stitch it, but my lower back was killing me and I was so eager to get it finished.
