    This is a baby quilt made from Chenille and Minkee with appliques ducks I believe the pattern is call Just Ducky.... I saw this about a year ago and bought it and put it away in my grandma "hope" chest... And now with much anticipation I will be a Grandma in Sept this year...
    Please note this is only the second quilt that I have FMQ ( the first one I tried on a long arm ) this one is on my own sewing machine.. so it leaves alot to be desired..I'm ok at piecing and appliqueing , just have to practise with the quilting ..... The edging is a satin border with machine embroidered hearts and flowers..... Anyhow, this blanket is so soft and cuddly and warm I'm hoping it will become a favorite "blankie"
