Penguin Family 2 Fabric Applique Quilt Pattern

Penguin Family 2 Fabric Applique Quilt PatternEveryone loves penguins. They are so amazing and so cute! Can you believe that Janice designed this quilt without having watched the movie "March of the Penguins"? She did watch the movie while she was appliqueing it, though. So here is her first hint:

HINT 1: When you are ready to applique this quilt, rent "March of the Penguins", or "Happy Feet" (or both!), make some hot chocolate, put a fire in the fireplace, relax and enjoy. The stitching will be done before you know it.

HINT 2: Our favorite way to quilt this one is with snowflakes, of different sizes and shapes, placed randomly over the quilt. Use Google Images to find pictures of snowflakes to print and use as templates. Use metallic thread for a shimmery effect.
HINT 3: Consider making this quilt using fusible web and machine applique, for a really fast gift for a child, any time of year!
Be sure to look in the 2 Fabric Applique Quilt Album to see a few more examples of this quilt made by our customers.

Check out our Pairings Section for this wonderful option for this pattern.
