Sue of Mother Patchwork correctly noted that kangaroo tails do not bend back upon themselves and I admitted to taking some artistic license. In truth, the kangaroo tail would be extended out behind it laying on the ground...an arrangement that doesn't work well for a quilt block.
In addition, squirrels would argue that having a tail that lays on the ground is a huge PR mistake that only a rat would make. The squirrel would, however, applaud the kangaroo's choice to hop instead of slither. But I digress...
So here is another alternative for the tail that is much less decorative but might be slightly more realistic...that is, the tail is broken in one place instead of two.
Meanwhile, these three pigs showed up wanting to join the piglet party.
