The Penguin Quilt


This little penguin quilt is another one for charity that I have been working on. One lady has
pieced it all together & layered all the appliqué pieces. I have stitched the appliqués in place.



Some of the pieces are so tiny, like the fish tails in the corners & the eyes of the penguins that were only a few mm across. So with the combination of my own machining skills & my trusty Bernina I am happy with the result. I love my Artista 17o, she does anything I ask of her without complaint.

The quilt will now go back to my sewing group for someone else to quilt & bind, ready for some very lucky small child.

That is one cute quilt Jenny. Any little child is going to be thrilled to receive it. You and your group are doing an amazing job. I've got a Bernina Artista 170 too, with the embroidery unit. I've been told it's done over 5 million stitches!! I also have a 1230, and goodness knows how many stitches have been put through it!! Thanks for sharing these quilts, I find them very interesting.

I've seen many quilts of different types but this one [penguin quilt] is unique and humoristic; I guess. Nice job.
