I made one of my friends a duckie blanket when she had her baby. She contacted me about a month ago, asking me to make her 2 more, only in girl colors (hers was blue, yellow and white for her little boy).
I bought some really cute fabrics at Gracie Lou's, and several other large, chain fabric stores.
In the outer border I quilted loops, kind of like bubbles. In the inner border I quilted flowers.
