“Duck” Baby Quilt

At my last quilt retreat I pieced, quilted and bound another 36″ square baby quilt from a variety of scraps. It was fun and fast, but I just knew it wasn’t finished. There were so many different prints, I wanted to add something to “calm” it down. At first I thought I’d do a kitty applique, but then I came across a cute duck in one of my bins. I think it gives the quilt a focus and a cuteness.

I continue to back all of my donation quilts with soft and cuddly fleece.

There are now four (4) baby quilts all headed to the local Community Pregnancy Center. Just couldn’t resist lining them all up for a colorful outdoor shot!

“Snuggle”

Finished the baby rag quilt I started here. It was a quick sew, but the clipping took a while. I’d clip, rest, clip some more, do something else, then clip, clip, clip! The quilt has been washed and dried twice to get it fluffed up. Each washing & dry will make it more snuggly.

I secured the outside of the quilt with an extra strip doubled over instead of binding. It too is clipped. The stripe brightens the quilt and pulls it all together.

For the backing I used a bright directional print, but altered direction of the design. SNUGGLE is labeled and ready to gift!

And…my newest addition to my garden. Couldn’t resist this sign.

Yes, sometimes it does happen!
