It’s my week to post! I had the privilege of using Good Day from Me & My Sister…Now I know you are all like… what??? Lisa can’t work with brights!!! Well…I just want you all to know…I can ROCK brights…I made a simple, cute, adorable quilt using their Charm pack…now we also could use a little yardage as well with the quilt so I asked the girls to send me some FQS as well…
I cut the M&MS charms into 2 1/2″ squares…I needed a few more to complete the design so I cut up some 2 1/2″ squares from those 3 FQs to get the required amount…You need 196 print 2 1/2″ squares and 29 solid white 2 1/2″ squares to form the X through the quilt…Now if you know me well you know I love to appliqué and my company Primitive Gatherings has the best hand dyed wools…so I added a little Duck and her ducklings to add a little more interest to the quilt, but the quilt would look fine without them as well…Click this link Duck Quilt to download the pattern…The Duckling quilt is 47″x 47″ with the border. If you need a Good Day Charm pack click HERE This is a link for Fat Quarter Shop…we do not have these charm packs. But … If you need a wool kit and or threads for your Ducks…Click HERE we have wools and threads.I just read the pattern and it says 1/2 yd for the green inner border…but like I said before…I know I only had a FQ of it but if you don’t want your inner border to be in lots of pieces use a 1/2 yd. I also used the remaining fabrics from those FQs for the binding…that is why it is scrappy…again if you want one color binding use one, your choice.
We live on a lake in Wisconsin and we see Ducks & Geese raising their families every year…I tried to take a pic of them today on their daily swim…but they are all getting older now and a little more mobile then when they were younger…
I am sure they will be on their own soon!
Now that you know the reason for the Ducks…I guess I should also say…I am sooooo impatiently waiting for my flannel line to arrive which is any day…now the only thing I had left of my designer precuts was a layercake…so…I made this…but because we had a bunch of storms with tornadoes and no power at the warehouse for three days…and this is where my long arm is… it didn’t get quilted…but I know you all will understand…so I decided to baste it for a big stitch demo coming soon…
and… because I had a layer cake…I made the squares 3 1/2″ and the quilt finished 64″ square…so this pattern its easily adaptable…and it could also be make from a Farmhouse flannel charm pack using the duck pattern with the 2 1/2″squares…I don’t want to be mean sharing this and then not sharing this pattern as well.

I just had enough batting to make this work…
