Some cute critters for Marilyn
Well I finally finished them. Phew!
Ooh man these are some of the cutest patterns I’ve worked with. I mean look at this racoon!
I totally giggled my way through this one. She’s the fanciest racoon in town! We were allowed to add coordinating solids from our stash, so I pulled a variety of pinks and brown to help with this block. The background is a super soft prewashed baby flannel which I thought was perfect for this baby quilt.
And how could I resist this puppy pattern?
If I had more time I would embroider some eyes on all of these little critters.
The sparrow is definitely one of my all time favorite patterns. The movement in this block is just perfect.
I found all of these great 6 inch blocks at the Piece by Number Etsy store . You have to click over and check out her patterns. There’s a great variety of patterns in all ranges of difficulty.
These patterns ranged from easy – puppy, to moderate – sparrow, to difficult – racoon. The racoon pattern has several small pieces which are a little tricky to piece together at the end. But with a little patience and careful alignment it all works out.
I can’t wait to see Marilyn’s quilt all done. It’s going to be just beautiful, I’m already coveting it!
