Ducky Day Quilt

Ducky Day Front

Ducky Day Binding

I have been a huge fan of the Lizzy House Red Letter Day fabric since I first saw it.  The ducks!  The circles!  The stripes!  The ribbons!  I feel like it’s really hard to find cute boy fabric.  A year ago at this time that wouldn’t have bothered me.  But now I have a little boy so it suddenly matters.  🙂

I wanted to show off the fun prints so I decided on large strips of fabric with varying widths.  I quilted lines down the seams and also in the middle of each strip.  I’m happy to say my straight lines look great this time!

I bound the quilt in stripes (my first time using stripes as binding) and it’s just so fun!  The final quilt measures 39″ x 61″.

    What a stunning quilt! Perfect for a boy but I also think it would make a great quilt for a baby girl. So bright and vibrant!!

    Love this quilt! Lizzy is my daughter, and I’m just a little bit partial to Red Letter Day.

    Hi Faith!

    I just wanted you to know that I just love this quilt you made! I love it so much that I made one almost exactly like it for my son. I truly hope you don’t mind. I have blogged about it if you care to take a look. I promise I gave you all of the credit! I am new to blogging so you won’t get much new traffic from me yet, but please know I am a big fan of your work!

      I don’t mind at all! I get inspiration all over on different blogs. I love the name you chose for your blog – but I bet the more you get addicted to quilting, you will be needing more than 15 min a day! 🙂
