Two quilt tops
I recently found bits and pieces of different duck prints so decided add them to a few chunk scraps to make a couple of child sized donation quilts.
I had some pink scraps out for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge so decided to add some blue and yellow for this quilt. What to do...what to do...then Duck Duck Goose popped into my head. So I made some Flying Geese and sewed them together randomly into columns. I was going to alternate columns of Flying Geese pointing upwards with columns pointing downward; however, when I went to sew the columns together they looked sort of weird - probably because the corners on the Flying Geese aren't all the same color?
Anyway...I didn't want to add sashing between each column so just went with one sashing. I cut a couple of two inch strips so I could use the leftover for making those 2048 - 2 inch HSTs I have in the works for another project.
You know I usually sew blocks or units together randomly and I'm kind of amazed at how often the same fabrics show up next to each other like all the Flying Geese with the light pink corners all in a row.
And here I evidently have all my ducks in a row.
I had a lot of duck prints in various sizes of squares from past swaps. I combined with the leftovers from the Flying Geese quilt so I had 24 squares to use in 10 inch blocks. For this quilt I used blue, yellow and orange.
These were quick and easy tops to put together in between gardening - my other love.
It will probably be awhile before they get quilted. I haven't looked for backings yet.
