Penguin Cheer

I just love pattern testing for Fat Cat Patterns!



This year Sindy, over at Fat Cat Patterns, came up with
this new free BOM called Penguin Cheer, which you can find at

http://fatcatpatterns.com/boms.html


You will find the instructions and yardage  information online now, and the blocks will run from Feb 2014 thru Feb 2015.


Here is my version of Sindy's adorable pattern. I would have loved to go outside with it for photos, but with our typhoon winds, I was afraid it would blow clear to the Antarctic where these penguins belong!  LOL!    So my living room had to be the next best substitute.















13 months of these little cuties!



 You know, if you follow my blog, that I have talked about this incredible  "Glide" thread from Fil-Tec before.  Here is a close up of how it shimmers on the fabrics. Best yet, I never have a thread break in my long arm with it...ever! It's such a joy to quilt with. Since it's a poly thread, there is very little dust in the bobbin case, which my machine loves. Between that and how much I love the looks of it,  I may never quilt with anything else again. :-)

So  hop on over to Fat Cat and start collecting your free BOM  and keep an eye out for that marvelous Glide thread!  They both are a win - win for us quilters!

Thanks Sindy, for allowing me to pattern test for you. It was pure joy and delight!

  20. I've already gotten the starting information for the penguins - so cute! I love your moose postage stamp - it reminds me of a trip to Alaska where I saw a mom and baby moose up close.
