|Tic Tac Quack|
You might remember my first rubber duck block attempt yielded a rather chubby duck. I'm glad I went back to the drawing board. This one fits the space just as I hoped.
I tried to quilt random wavy lines for the waves. I've seen lovely quilting like that, but whatever I was doing didn't do the trick. It looked like one big mess. I ended up ripping out the quilting (I quit after finishing about a quarter of the quilt, so it didn't take to long to rip out) and starting over after marking lines. I used a flexible curve, the kind used in drafting I think, to copy the curve. This, like most of my quilts, was quilted with a walking foot.
I don't know if you can make out the detail in the binding. I used the same bubble print as in the square right below the duck. It reminds me of bubble bath. When my kids were little, rubber ducks and bubble bath were a great bath time team.
Have a great weekend! I hope you'll drop in to see Tic Tac Hoot! in more detail tomorrow.
This is an adorable quilt. I love your selection of the bubble fabric and the wavy lines for quilting. ~JeanneReplyDelete

Every time I go to my local fabric shop I see a bolt of rubber duck fabric, it would be the perfect backing for this quilt! If I only I knew a baby.ReplyDelete

A cute quilt. The wavy lines look great and the baby duck.ReplyDelete
Darling! I love your simple quilting as well. It should give a new quilter a can do attitude.ReplyDelete
