Woohoo! Merry Penguins is finished. It measures 31" x 27" This picture unfortunately makes it look a bit washed out.
I pieced this top in Cairo, Egypt on 18 August 2006. I quilted it in Maryland and Florida in the U.S. as well as here in Paris. You can read about the making of it here and see some quilting details here. It is quilted in plain old red quilting thread. I started out by going around the entire border with unmarked fans and then went back and quilted the interior in rows going up. Made for some interesting patterns in the yellow border.
A picture of the back. I just use up part of my stash, the one that fits the size best. Don't care about the pattern at all.
