Pattern Description:

Penny Penguin is an irresistibly cute paper pieced quilt pattern. Choose a snowflake or Christmas background fabric for a holiday quilt, or any fabric you like (maybe even a Hawaiian floral?) for a fun kids quilt or animal-theme project.

The 12-inch finished size quilt block comes with both penguin versions (left foot up and its mirror image), plus a chart that makes it simple to resize the quilt block pattern from 6 - 24 inches.

Add the eyes with applique or embroidery (machine or by hand), beads, buttons or fabric paints. See my blog for a mini-tutorial where I show how easy it is to machine applique Penny's eyes:

Penny Penguin is intended for quilters with at least basic paper piecing experience.
