Penguin Promenade BOM – Block #7

Another month has come and gone, it’s October, and there are only two penguin blocks left after this one. On some levels, this year seems to drag on forever but then you wake up, and Christmas is coming. Well, I am exaggerating, of course, but the Christmas quilting rush is just around the corner, and the year will be over in no time. In gardening news, I have had decent success, considering that I had no clue when I started out in March. I had a huge tomato harvest and still have three trays of green ones ripening inside. I planted a second round of beans in August, and they grew like crazy and were ready to harvest within six weeks. I also planted more peas and spinach but these don’t mind cool and rainy weather so much, so they should be fine.  I am definitely going to do this again next year and have already started planning.

Coming up with winter activities for our penguin pals wasn’t as easy as it sounds. After going through the obvious ones like skiing and skating, I played around with lots of possibilities to fill the remaining blocks and came up with this ice fishing guy. Isn’t he reeling in a nice catch? The more blocks I made, the more I kept looking for interesting fabrics in my scraps to use for their accessories. Stripes and plaids work really well for scarves and mittens, polka dots and flowers are also good choices. The block will be available for free download until the end of the month and move over to the pattern store in November to make room for the next free pattern.

EDIT: If you missed the free download in October, block #7 is now available for purchase in the pattern store.

EDIT: Individual blocks and pattern bundles are no longer available but the full pattern can still be found in the pattern store, both in English/Imperial and German/Metric.

    Thanks for another cute pattern.

    If you need suggestions, how about a shoveling snow, a snowball fight, sleigh ride, driving a car/truck in the snow or a riding a snowmobile

    I love this set…they are so dang cute…thank you for sharing your creativity! I am so in love with these little guys… Congratulations on the garden success…I am upholding the long tradition of black thumb when it comes to plants, unfortunately. I plant it, it dies, seems to be the norm.
