After having been operating slower than normal in the past two months thanks to the end of the school year and vacation and business travel, I managed to finish my project from Bonnie Hunter’s Blue Ridge Beauty workshop within a week. It’s worth noting that her pattern is written for a queen size quilt, and my mine is lap-sized, with only 56 blocks.
I’ve named my version “Inside Out Penguin” because my color choices reminded me of the grade school joke “What’s black and white and re(a)d all over?” While “a newspaper” is a milder answer, I could only think of the inside-out black and white animal answer. Welcome to my 9 year old brain!
In picking out my scraps, I ended up including about 5 different Star Wars prints, on top of all of the other random fabrics included from the scrap bins. As a result, there are a couple Death Stars lurking about in the quilt.
