We have a simple block this week, so you should be able to finish quickly. The embroidery is easy and only requires a back stitch and satin stitch. The penguin’s eyes are small and can easily satin stitched without outlining first. The mouth is larger so outlining with a tiny back stitch will give it a little “padding” and hide the outside of your satin stitch. Don’t skip this outlining step if you want your stitches to look nice and even.
Here’s how the quilt looks with block three added. Remember, there are still nine blocks to go. You just never know what Santa will leave in a stocking.
Here’s block three in fabric!
