Inside Out Penguin Quilt - Finished!

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.

  1. This reminds me a little bit of my Stepping Stones quilts. It is a similar combination of 4 patches and HSTs. I love the off centeredness of your layout and that Sawtooth Border is EXCELLENT!

  2. i love the name…never hear that joke before, but it’s a knee-slapper! and i love that you used star wars fabric in it…it gives me some ideas for the 2 star wars quilts i’m making for christmas!

    1. Now that I’m thinking Death Star, the off set center totally reminds me of the Death Star, the red sawtooth border helps too! Makes me love it even more!

  3. I love, love, love that you have star wars fabric in this! I have star wars fabric waiting to be made into pillowcases for Christmas! Love that I’m not the only geeky quilter out there!
