Penguin Backing Fabric

You might have noticed that I didn’t post a picture of my sample block this month. I don’t have a huge fabric stash, that’s not the way I work. I come up with a design first, and then I hunt down the fabrics, and sometimes it just takes a while to find the right ones. But my first block is finally done and ready to show.

And I also managed to find backing fabric for the quilt. I don’t usually buy a lot of novelty prints but I like my backings to match the theme of the quilt, and of course I had to order this cute penguin fabric when I saw it online. And they even wear hats and scarves!

      Thank you, Deloris. Yes, I am quite happy with the fabric too, sometimes it’s not easy to find something that works with my idea of matching the quilt’s theme.

    Great background fabric.

    • Beatrice says:

      Thank you, Marcia. I was looking for something that looks like ice or frost and didn’t want to go with just white background again.
