Quilting Along

I am sure you are all well aware of the super cute patterns Ayumi has been making as part of the Super Pink Penguin quilt along. Please have a look at her Flickr group here you are in for a treat there are so many cute blocks to see! I for one can never resist her sweet creations. Did you know Ayumi has a book coming out next year?! Woop!! 

So while I'm busy working on a few fun projects behind the scenes, I found time to sew up this chef block.
Super Penguin QAL

I love how he has this sort of French pastry chef look, very serious about his cake but he's still polite enough to say please ;)

And just in case you are curious about the 'fun stuff' I was referring to ... how does a QAL sound? Rachel and I have been plotting an scheming along with a few other very talented quilters and I'm so excited about where things are headed. This is not just another quilt along where we all join in to make the same pretty quilt, no there will be different designs for you to choose from plus there are quite a few things to learn along the way - sounds good right? We still need a bit more time to get everything ready but I will keep you posted!!

  9. You totally nailed the chef block, Leila! I just can't get over how cute he is!! Yes what you said about him (serious French chef, but still quite polite) is what I wanted him to be like!
