Penguin Inn

Posted on: March 4th, 2016 by Lorna McMahon

What a fast and fun finish! This Penguin Inn quilt was cut and pieced in one day. And quilted and bound the next. It may have been a couple of weeks since I sewed anything. But it must be just like riding a bike. This photo shoot makes me thankful for the fresh show fall. […]
