I made this quilt featuring 3 ducks swimming on a pond in the center. The ducks were given to me and I thought they really needed to be swimming so I appliquéd them on a pond of our Light Blue Marblecious fabric. The pond is surrounded by squares of a green print for vegetation, brown for the earth (& cattails), a blue water print with white and yellow blenders to tie it all together. It is backed and bound with our Softie Lime Green 108” Quilt Backing and I quilted it in Cattails & Lily Pads with green thread. It made the perfect housewarming gift for my nephew and his wife who bought a lakeside home! 🙂
Brenda Nelson’s mother-in-law made the center of this quilt. Brenda brought it in and asked us to finish and quilt it for her. My sister, Iris and I added the stripes, lighthouse plus more red and blue to it. I quilted it all in Diamonds with variegated red, white and blue thread and did the matching binding in red. An American treasure!
