Have you ever had something in your fabric stash that was so old you can not even remember purchasing it? That is the way it was with a fabric panel of preprinted duck blocks. I first used some of the panels in 1991. And just to show you, I dug out my scrapbook and scanned the page. Just look at those points on the flying geese blocks! The photo should be clickable so you can
Okay. Fast forward to last week. On Monday, I dropped two quilt tops off at my long arm quilter and said that they did not need to be ready by Christmas. On Thursday I got a call saying that both quilts were ready to pick up. Already? Wow!
The remaining preprinted duck blocks and two alternating blocks created this nice sized quilt of 54x72”. Using two colorways of the same fabric worked quite well for the alternating blocks and a solid blue Kona cotton made up the backing. My long arm quilter recommended the cattail panto that can been seen in the close up.
I am really, really pleased with this quilt and it will be very hard to give it away. O, and the title of this post? A play on words; the first quilt was 'Limited Ducks' so the second quilt is 'Ducks Unlimited'. *grin*
