A cushion made for a penguin loving six-year-old:
The pattern for the block is by Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts and is available here for free. I used the 12 inch block and added a 1.5 inch (finished) border of the blue background colour followed by a nice bright red to match his bowtie :)
The pattern was very well written and I had so much fun seeing him come together. He is named after a song I had running through my head as I was stitching away, I think it suits him very well.
The cushion back I did not bother to photograph as it is totally unglamourous... plain mid grey bella cotton with a hidden zip made following Adrianne's excellent tutorial. The binding is Moda dottie in black.
I hope my young friend will love him!
