I had to seek help from the local Office Depot store to increase my appliqué pattern to a size that would fit nicely on a 16 inch square mini quilt.
I got these little guys all fused on and ready to appliqué them down.
Now to quilt the background. I searched several ideas and finally just decided to go with this simple snowflake idea.
A few different sizes to fit and I am ready to quilt it.
I added the button in three different sizes and it is ready to go.
This whole idea came of realizing I needed a Christmas runner for our neighbors. She brings over some really wonderful gifts every year for the last two and I have been left feeling a bit surprised so do not want to have a repeat this year. I need two more of these blocks and then will quilt them with a spiral quilting on each.
Last week I posted my oldest grandson relaxing in the pool with his dog and mentioned that their ducks often join in the fun too. One of my blog watchers wanted to see the ducks. Thus, here is Ben our youngest grandson in the pool with the lady duck.
And her handsome mate that often joins in as well.
