Peanuts BOM Schroeder

This month’s Peanut block is Schroeder!

The pattern is free on tweloquilting here

wikipedia has some info about him here

First appearance
May 30, 1951 (Comic Strip)

Schroeder is a fictional character in the long-running comic strip Peanuts, created by Charles M. Schulz. He is distinguished by his precocious skill at playing the toy piano, as well as by his love of classical music and the composer Ludwig van Beethoven in particular. Schroeder is also the catcher on Charlie Brown's baseball team, though he is always seen walking back to the mound with the baseball, never throwing it—admitting in one strip he didn't want the other team to discover his lack of ability. He is also the object of the unrequited infatuation of Lucy van Pelt, who constantly leans on Schroeder's piano, much to Schroeder's annoyance. Charlie Brown, Frieda and Snoopy are also occasionally depicted as leaning on Schroeder's piano.

Schroeder was voted an honorary member of the Epsilon Iota chapter at Florida State University of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music fraternity, the oldest and largest music fraternity in the world

 

Here’s my block done without markings, I decided on a fun light green background and some google pics showed a blue shirt and dark almost black pants and of course the red piano

Here I used the fabric marker again to paint his face and shirt and music note :)
