Paper Foundation Pieced Wee Loon

This Wee Loon pattern is from Silver Lining's newsletter.  Be sure to check it out and sign up for the newsletter.  This years patterns are treasures of the rainforest.  I collect all Linda's free patterns, because you never know when you might need them.

Previously I had posted a picture of a Wee Bear.  I used both of these blocks for a row robin that I was participating in.

I added a couple of trees to fill in the space, and my row was done with a couple of days to spare!

This is Rosemarie's rows.  Her theme was the great outdoors.

My theme was my garden.  I pieced the row on the bottom with a little bit of a Nancy Halverson panel included, to set the tone.  I am very happy with the finished results.  A quick note for the non computer geeks.  Double click on the pictures and they should open in a new window so you can see them better.

These two sets of rows belong to Carol and Lorraine.  They both used stars as their theme.  They look very different because of the choices made for the backgrounds.

Row robins are always a lot of fun, as well as a bit of a challenge.  We all agreed we had a lot of fun participating.  Thanks to all for my wonderful rows!


  1. Oh My, I love the star quilt!! I have a special reason for loving stars. Just beautiful. Hugs

  2. I have only had the chance to participate in a row quilt swap once and thoroughly enjoyed it.
    I like the blocks you have used for the animals. They look great.
    And your Garden rows are looking very good, too.
    Great to see the different themes that were chosen.

  3. Love the loon - have yet to try paper piecing, will have to get on that! Love your row swap, never heard of that before, what a fun idea!

  4. That loon is amazing, and I LOVE the top you've got it arranged into, so rich and vibrant. And what a great theme! Everything you have made is so beautiful!

  5. I love the loon and would like to be able to include it in a Minnesota/fishing themed quilt I am trying to design. Do you have a pattern for the loon that you would be willing to share? Thanks for considering.
