It’s only fitting that I am lucky enough to make the Duck Row. After we arrived home from Spring Break, a mama duck had made a perfect little nest in the bush next to our stairs. I checked on them everyday to see if they were safe or had hatched. The Duck Row is a little reminder of the guest we had this year!
The row has 5 baby ducks and a Mama, so there were a lot of pieces. The Alphabitties I had came into good use keeping track of them. Otherwise, I know I would have wasted tons of time trying to figure out the dimensions and placement.
The blocks went together easily and I was finished in an afternoon. And I must say that I’m super pleased with all it’s quacky cuteness!
We’re almost finished! Next week are the Borders & Finishing with Kristin. And don’t forget to visit all of the other blogs for your inspiration to quilt along.

Thank you Fat Quarter Shop for asking me to participate in the quilt along. I enjoyed it!❤️
Happy Christmas is July! A great way to beat the heat is sewing of course and that’s just what I’ve been doing. Sherri Falls from This & That has a new book out which features lots of fun project ideas and to help you get excited and creative, Fat Quarter Shop is having a blog tour which I’m super excited to be a part of.
I made the sweet mini quilt from the Holiday Wishes book called ‘Comfort And Joy’. Measuring only 16″x20″, it’s the perfect quick fix to those summertime blues:)
Knowing full well that the smaller your project is the more precise your work needs to be, I took my time. I cut it out one day, and the next I pieced it toghether. My suggestion is get yourself some Alphabitties. These cuties keep track of all the pieces for you. You don’t want to waste time remeasuring while you work.
It went together in a couple of hours and the instructions were easy to follow.I used Tasha Noel’s newest fabric line Pixie Noel. I cannot resist those adorable kissing bunnies💞
After Paige quilted it, I added the sweet crochet trim my mom made for me around the binding to add a little more cuteness to the quilt. It’s all in the details, right?
I’m going to enjoy my mini for the week, then it’s off to someone special who I think deserves some Christmas cheer…
The Holiday Wishes book, Alphabitties & fabric can be found at Fat Quarter Shop and don’t forget to hop on over to the other bloggers today, which can be found HERE, to see what they’ve created from the book. Happy sewing everyone!
