Baby quilt for Lucia! – progress
I have been working this week on another baby quilt. This special quilt is for a special little girl who is now six weeks old. Her name is Lucia. Lucia’s grandma, Margie, seen the Lucky Ducky wall hanging I have listed in my Etsy shop. And she wanted a quilt made.
Here is the progress sew far…..
The wall hanging version is 12″ x 12″ and was done using raw edge applique. The crib quilt has been difficult to construct in that it is made using a turned edge. Obviously, I am also having trouble with proportion! I thought the duck was huge…. But now I see that the frog is WAY bigger than he should be, too. And those duck feet…. Er…. Not looking sew hot, I think. I will have to reduce their size. And the contrast in the colours of the orange fabrics used – I am not happy with that either.
So, what do you think? Would you change the size of the duck feet? Would you choose a lighter fabric for the webbing on the feet? Or would you just leave it as is? Love to hear your opinion!
