Penguin quilt, What does the fox say shirt

OK, breaking my silence after considerable time lurking. Thanks to gentle nudging to post by Sue after requesting her "twist' design. (haven't twisted yet and you can see why)
ITH quilt using Anitagoodesign Quilting Essentials with their Penguins and Puffins designs in the squares. Border is Embroidery Library Penguin Tracks. Backing is from JoAnn's.
Shirt is another Anita design (Shrinky Animals) and the wording is based on the You Tube video What does the fox say? The GDs go around singing it all the time.

Thank you. I wanted each penguin block on it's own not touching any other so that arrangement is what I came up with.

What a beautiful quilt 'kingmar" - I particularly love the border design with the little penguins walking. It's a lovely soothing colour too and your backing fabric matches so well. Love the fox, but don't know the story about that one. I just had a look at it on YouTube. Catchy! but have never heard of them. Love Chris

Love those Anita good designs. I bought Quilting Essentials and have done zip with it so far, so you'reway ahead of me! Like your backing material, too.

Caution - when using the Quilting Essentials there are a couple border options that I feel are not crystal clear in the tutorial. The tutorial shows 2 pages of each design. The left page are the main block options. Most of the right page are the border options. If you look very closely you will see that the border blocks are slightly different than the main body blocks. Long story made short ... I wanted the mitered corner border blocks so ended up with mitered corners that had quilting slightly different than the rest of the border. I called AGD and was told that was because they wanted the borders to be different than the rest to stand out. They told me my option was to use the rectangle from the main designs (which I had done) then complete the corner with a small square from the main designs. As I had already done the mitered corners that is what I used.

beautiful quilt

by jrob Moderator 28 Feb 2014

What a wonderful quilt. You did a beautiful job. Your quilting is to die for!
Have young grands so I DO know what the fox says. ;)
I must admit that I am happy visiting them in the local zoo and not living in their environment. Just coming out of winter here and I'm particularly done with it.

by 1961nancy 28 Feb 2014

You did a fantastic job. Is this your first quilt?

I have done small lap size ones but this is only my second full bed size one. The first full was quite a learning experience and the penguin one went a lot better.
