Blue squirrel

Here's a new addition to the nut house. This squirrel was pieced based on a .75 inch grid and has a finished size of 7.5 by 9 inches. This is slightly redesigned from a previous squirrel. That one had a fancy set-in circular eye, a broken arm and crazy, I mean, inefficient piecing. I drew out two new versions and, by accident, made the one that Molly favors. She wanted a squirrel with a supersized tummy to make it easy to catch and yummy.

Here is the earlier version. If you'd like to see what more sensible people are piecing for this last blue week in January, please visit the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.

  2. Squirrel! Yes, I can attest that they are crazy to piece, and if you’re going to do a whole quilt of them, you might just qualify for the nuthouse. Having said that, however, I probably do too as I made my squirrel from your pattern with a bushier tail and the flat stomach. Easier to catch, perhaps, but not as tasty.

  4. Love the surprised expression on your squirrel's face! He looks amazed to find a nut in his paw - perhaps someone else put it there when he wasn't looking !
