Green Squirrel

I was so busy congratulating myself on piecing a flawless squirrel that I missed seeing that this squirrel is suffering from square jaw.

He is already getting taunted by his peers. So while green squirrel goes back under the knife, I mean, seam ripper, I suggest you visit the green piece supporters over at the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.

Meanwhile, I have changed my mind about what to use for the backing of the owl quilt. I think the backing on the right captures more of the craziness of the quilt top.

  4. Every Sunday, my son and his wife come for lunch and then we play cards in front of a huge window overlooking a family of squirrels. Your blocks are so sweet and happy.

  6. I’m glad that Mr Green Squirrel (AKA Dudley DoRight) is getting his jaw fixed. Don’t want to inhibit his ability to chomp on nuts! And speaking of nuts, the new backing for the owls is perfect.

  11. Square jaw...better than lock jaw, I guess. I love your new owl backing. I agree...a better choice, although I liked the first one too.

  12. The Dudley Do-Right squirrel!
    And the Owls on the right definitely seems to be the right choice. It's nice to have choices.
