Ducks in a row?

With the birth of a new grandson I knew he needed a grandma quilt. Fred decorated Baby Hank's room in hunter green and a taupe color. His bumper pads on the baby bed are camouflage. Never guess O Wise One and Hank's father are both hunters. She has duck decoys as decorations. So grandma got in the swing of the theme with this duck decoy quilt : )

I love the camouflage backing. Found the pattern in a 20 year old quilting magazine that I have saved. See there is a method to my madness and a reason for saving all this junk. I did the ducks in different shades of green, burgundy and gold scraps. It's all hand quilted!

Hank will love it!

  1. You did a fantastic job! Congratulations. Anyone would be happy to have one. :)

  2. I'm very impressed! It turned out beautiful. I'm sure he will treasure it for many many years. My kids ( now 29 and 31 ) still treasure the blankets and afgans that grandparents made for them when they were babies and toddlers.

  3. This is such a cute quilt and not using typical baby colors! A little baby hunter-boy.... Fantastic! I am already imagining the games you can play with this one.

    I really like the block pattern, not a hard one at all, but very effective! Quilts are such a wonderful gift for a baby. You did a great job.

  4. Great design, I miss my childhood days when my grandmother create similar designs for me.


  5. I would love a.copy of the pattern
