My penguin quilt was finished on the 22nd of December and delivered the same day. I put it on the long arm on the 18th and sat watching a tv show on the 21st sewing down the binding. I am really happy with this quilt and want to thank Sindy at Fat Cat for the wonderful pattern. The pattern is still available for purchase. Just click on Store and scroll down.
I used a Glide thread on the top and Sew Fine by Superior on the back. I love a fine thread in the bobbin because it goes on and on and on! Actually I brought nearly a full bobbin home and filled three bobbins for my Sapphire. I'm ready to sew for awhile!

Isn't the snowflake wonderful and big?

I ordered the backing fabric on line and when it came I was really disappointed.
It was advertised as flannelette and it was cotton. When you order from a company in Georgia, you think twice about returning it.
This was the second time this company messed up, so I won't be giving them a third chance.
