Just Ducky Top Complete

The ducks have been embroidered and the top is ready for quilting:


I am smitten.
It's going to be hard to give this one away, but it's going to a special baby boy who has made a dear couple first time grandparents.

It was awfully scary adding black thread to those little yellow ducks, but as I worked, they just kept cheering me on. :) I like the way they have a childlike, feel to them, and this was a good way for me to take on applique and not stress over it being perfect. I think I'll be appliqueing like this a lot because I don't do perfect.

That is going to be well loved. It is just lovely and your applique is great. I too wondered about the black thread but it really works.
