I’m working away quietly on my Animal ABC blocks – yet another UFO which I had started a while ago and then put away. Out of sight means out of mind and it has only recently surfaced, and made it to my UFO list. The next block to do was the letter P and I had some cute panda fabric in my bag ready to use. But what animal starts with the letter Q?
P for Panda and Q for Quokka
An earlier check with Mr Google told me all about quokkas. This Australian marsupial is rather like a wallaby and is found on Rottnest Island, near Perth. Not that I’ve ever seen one. My Australian quilting buddy Janet kindly scanned a picture of a quokka onto fabric and sent it over to me to use some time ago.
I’ve also remade my J for Jaguar block as I was not happy with the previous one. This jaguar is relaxing, ready to pounce on a passing animal at meal time. And I’ve prepped several more blocks ready to sew, and trimmed some others down to size. So I’m getting there, one step at a time.
J is for Jaguar
There are snippets of fabric and thread all over the floor – didn’t I just do the vacuuming yesterday, or maybe the day before? But never mind, I’m being creative.
