Some More Zoo Animals

More Zoo Animals

I have been busy paper piecing up some more Zoo Animals, for the fun and adorable 
Zoo Animals BoM,  by Kristy at Quiet Play blog.

Patterns at Quiet Play

 Some of my followers may have seen  these finished blocks on my IG and Flickr group previously...

I 'd like to introduce :

Mr. Penguin:      February's Block of the Month

He's a sharp little dresser in his dotty tuxedo!   I love his little tonal gray dots  (from my stash.)

And meet Mr. Giraffe:

 Mr. Giraffe:   May's Block of the Month

He seems to have a calm and serene personality, doesn't he?  ( Or maybe he is  just preoccupied with looking for some leaves to munch on?!  )

Next,  meet Mr. Blue Macaw:       June's Block of the Month

It took a long time for me to decide upon which fabrics to use for this bright little guy.  I wanted to use this aqua/turquoise geometric batik fabric,  but it had " a problem " with my blue background fabric.  I was delighted when  I discovered this leafy, ferny tonal batik in my stash.  I hope it gives the feel of this Blue Macaw being in the jungle and trees....

And lastly,  let's meet cutie pie , Mr. Koala Bear:    July's FREE Block of the Month

He's a bashful little fellow, but came out to specially to say hi to you!  I think he has such kind eyes.... don't you?   I love his little white fur patch  on his chest.

Want to see all of my  Zoo Animals blocks so far?  
Hold still, everyone!    

7 Blocks completed so far !!    You can get the  pattern for the whole bunch

Sew.... just two more blocks until this BoM will be rounding up!   

If you want to keep up with my "latest" work,  you can follow me on my

I'm off to my sewing room!
