Quilt Group Challenge - Revealed

Yes, my quilting group, Quilty Pleasures, had the challenge quilt reveal this afternoon. It's always good to get together over tea/coffee and yummy food and show-and-tell.
Our challenge was:
the fabric for the top had to be from our stash,
the block was (6.5" x 3.5") x 4,
and the minimum size was to be a lap quilt size.
So here are the quilts in the order that were shown (we had to pick a numbered piece of paper out of a box):
Jenny's batiks
Sue's African fabric mix
Biddy's "Tomato Rose"
Pam's Brights - these she won In a Rose City Quilters raffle
My quilt - I had a request to make a quilt with polar bears and penguins
Majorie's quilt which she has made for one her daughters
I think that Marjorie had the biggest challenge as she hasn't been quilting for very long - doesn't have a stash, made a bigger size and then quilted it herself!
Anyway, I think we all had fun and certainly there is quite a variation between them all!

All beautiful quilts! Love your Polar Bears and Penguins!! What is the pattern name? It looks like lots of fun and a great way to use up small scraps - which I just might have a bundle of!!!
Cheers from Helen

Hi Helen, thanks for your comments. I don't know that block name but you can also place it like a zig-zag (having done that previously, I'm pleased to have done it this way).
