 And another top is finished! I started sewing these Duck Paddle blocks just to use up the pieces I'd cut as a kit years ago, but once I'd decided on the setting fabric and borders there was no stopping me.


I love the way this turned out, quite different from the way I'd intended to finish it but I'm very happy with it now.
The border fabric was leftover from a quilt backing years ago, and was from Spotlight originally, but I listened to what the quilt wanted and I'm glad I used it. The whole thing is very soft and pretty looking, despite the brown in the blocks. I love brown, and I'm itching to make another set of blocks in this colour combination. I haven't got it out of my system yet...

I love the rose border print, definately changes the look of the quilt to soft and romantic...perfect for this week!

I too love the border. The quilt could have been heavy and manly but instead it looks so sweet and feminine. Beautiful!
