I'm on a roll this month - 3rd wall quilt and all from kits!  I love these penguins with their string of lights.

The pictures don't show it but I did lots of quilting on this quilt - I stitched in the ditch between the border and scene, I outline stitched all the penguins plus around their tummies.  I loop stitched in the snow and there are stars in the sky.  The 'lights' are hearts and I used puff paint on their pom-poms.

Great job, I have this pattern too. Did you sew the string of lights, then add the hearts or did they come together? I have been trouble deciding what to do there. At a local quilting store (my sewing room) they actually have a string of tiny lights but I thought maybe something like yours would look better.

I sewed the string and then hot glued the hearts on - if you can get a string of tiny lights that's what I would do.  Mine was a kit and so it came with the hearts but if I had to pick, it would definitely be the lights.

So cute, C!  Love all the detail you put into this!  The little heart string of lights is just so nicely done!  And I like the puff paint idea for making the pompoms on the hats!

Thanks!  Now that Christmas is over it really should get put away but it's only been hanging for 3 weeks and I just can't do it.  I think I'll hang it in my craft room year round and just put it in the main part of the house for December.
