Kevin's cousin announced she is expecting her first a couple of months ago and then last week I found out it is going to be a boy. I went to the LQS last week and found some cute duck fabric and was able to get this rail fence quilt pieced, pinned and quilted over the last few days.
I really like making rail fence for baby quilts. It is quick, easy, and you can show off your fabric choices in a simple way.
It is quilted using a loopy meander and a variegated YLI thread called California Poppy. I decided to use the Red/Orange/Yellow thread to quilt it to bring out the color of the ducks. It is about 48x54.... I like making big baby quilts so that it can be grown into.
