Custom Longarm Machine Quilting

Saturday, March 28, 2009


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.
I love the border fabric! It is pink and purple flannel with ducks and bubbles. I wasn't sure I'd be able to find anything pink with ducks and bubbles, but I sure lucked out with some cute fabric!
In the center of the quilt I stitched around the duck appliques and did a meander across the rest.

This is my favorite duckie block. I had some leftover fabric from the original duck quilt, and was able to use it for the white contrast blocks in both quilts.

I bought this cute fabric at Gracie's. I love the minkee fabric, but I especially love it with the paisley design.
