It's Friday again. And the squirrels are back!
This is my second go of making a set of coordinated squirrel blocks. The first set of squirrel blocks I made were reddish brown. They were used to make a runner for my daughter's hope chest. You can see that finished runner here.
Oh, those pesky rodents... This time they are frolicking in the park.
This is Squirrels in the Park, a baby quilt sized 40" x 51", and it's made from Kona Cottons. For the background, I used Snow. The squirrels are Black and Coal. And the bird is Breakers with a Sunny yellow beak.
Seeing as those squirrels are frolicking in the park, for the backing, I have chosen to use this cherished piece of Windy Day in Aqua from the Backyard Baby Collection by Patty Sloniger for Michael Miller Fabrics. The binding will be cut from the one on the right below - Birch Forest in Aqua.
Can you believe I am cutting into that precious birch bark print?
It will be worth it, but it won't be easy.
The Squirrels in the Park baby quilt,
is now offered in conjunction with the Erin's Squirrels pattern,
and is available from my pattern store here.
