Snuggling Penguins

A friend of the family had a premie at the end of 2017. Her sister reached out and asked if I could make a blanket for her to gift with the baby's name and birth information. She said they love penguins so I went on the hunt for Penguin fabric. Who knew that penguin fabric would be so hard to find.  But thankfully, Pennington Quilt Works had a Penguin holiday fabric and it was on sale too! WHOOOP!

I worked with a local quilting friend to embroider the baby's information onto white fabric. Redacted in the photo below for privacy. Once that was completed, I began to design the penguin. 

I machine appliquéd it onto the fabric; this is only the third time I have done machine appliqué.  Not too bad. :p

Then I decided to pull out the orange in the penguins and put minkie on the back. I quilted with large cross hatching using my walking foot. 

I LOVE how it turned out! 

Auntie, Momma and baby love it too!  

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you will continue to follow me on this journey.
