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....
