It's a Finish! All My Ducks Are in a Row

 All My Ducks in a Row
40 x 60

It's a finish ready for giving or gifting. 

No clothesline photo again today.  Today's low -27 and right now it is -1. Tomorrow the high is predicted to be -16 and the low -32.  I'm glad I'm retired and don't have to go outside. 
 This quilt used up the bits and pieces of duck themed fabrics left over after I made the quilt I finished yesterday.  Plus I had various sized pieces of other duck fabrics from I Spy swaps I have participated in over the years.   I didn't have quite enough centers so made a few HSTs from the duck fabric scraps to use.  I made some ten inch Happy Blocks and some off center ten inch Framed Squares and combined them to make the quilt top back in May 2018.  

Last year was my first full year of retirement and I tried to use miscellaneous bits and pieces to make quilt tops and this year I hope to concentrate on getting them all quilted and donated or gifted. I've been trying to finish 2 of these smaller ones per week. 

 I quilted in some waves and bubbles. 
I used flannel on the back and bound it in orange.

Way to use up your bits and bobs! I used rubber ducks as a theme for my secret sister one year. I was amazed at the gifty things I found, even a night light.

All those ducks, in a row (or six) are just darned cute. I'm glad you've been finishing all these quilts, so you can pile them up around your house to keep warm. The temperatures have been unbelievably cold in your neck of the woods!

Just lovely. Great how you used every scrap of those duck fabrics. A really jolly quilt. You said you used flannel on the back, did you omit using batting?

Again, you've finished a cute, colorful quilt that will be much loved by another little one someday soon. ---"Love"

Just gorgeous - and what a find for that backing fabric! I love using up the bits'n'pieces of leftovers.
