    Everybody's Duck!

    I'm going to be a grandma in May! I have several crib quilts for grandbabies saved, but my d-i-l decided on a duck theme. So...in searching--this is the pattern I fell in love with. I used all fabrics from my stash. The outer border makes a bold statement, so I checked with Jenny first to make sure she liked it. She loved it! I needed to tie the border into the center, so I sort of fussy cut some squares from the border fabric for the blocks in the lattice. I kept the yellow/greens inside and the reds/purples to the outer edge. Jenny picked out a flannel back that is a bold stripe. It's in the mail. And the icing is feline fanatic is going to quilt this for me! Yay!!

    I had to relearn howappliquéique and drawing the accent marks on the ducks made me crazy--but it came out fine.

    The first picture shows the top before borders.

    Now to make three Talk-About Books for this first grandchild....

    awwww! This is adorable! I think the border print works wonderfully with the ducks. I love the little blue flower print too. In the one picture you posted it looks like the duck and the frog are carrying on a lovely conversation! I love your happy quilt and best wishes for the Grandbaby-to-be-here-in-May!!

    Pollytink--if you google Everybody's Duck--you should find the pattern. It is out of print in some places and I only found one place in the US that had it.

    The eyes and accent marks are done with a permanent marker--called foultra finene, but I ended up using fine on most. Not my strength at all! The eyes started bleeding a bit on the lightest fabric--but it stopped. Whew!

    Jenny is painting the baby's room yellow--so I tied that in as much as possible. I loved how the inner border tied the yellow and blue in.

    My son and his wife live just 10 minutes away from us--so this will be very exciting.
