Birthday Quilt


A couple weeks ago my nephew came to me and was discussing his upcoming birthday. He was dropping hints like a pro and told me he really wanted a penguin "blanket" but he didn't know who could make him one. He then finished the conversation by saying "you know... like the one you made me only with penguins instead of robots". Well I just knew I had to make him a quilt for his birthday. I searched and searched online for some pick a penguin by Michael Miller and it arrived giving me less than a week to complete his quilt.

I used the pattern found here at Confessions Of A Fabric Addict. The Pattern is called Noodle Quilt and Designed by Deb at Simple Life Quilts.

 It was super fast. It was a great pattern and I will definitely be using it again.


Quilted by: Me with straight lines 1/4 inch apart
