I am fairly new to doing quilts. I got hooked on them a couple of years ago. I decided that I should put my 'talent' to good use (plus my family didn't need any more quilts and I wanted to make another one). So, I made this quilt for my parents relay for like team. The theme is 'sports' and they named their team the ducks.....so my brain started working. I got the grid paper out and started drawing.
With my husbands help we came up a football style quilt. Simple design. I machine appliqued the helmets and 'Oregon' and 'Ducks' (that is with my embroidery machine). I 'regularly' appliqued the duck feet and hash marks.
The center of the quilt says 'waddling for a cure.' I wanted to add a bit of whimsy to the quilt. It was also embroidered on there.
A closer look at the end zone.
A look at the bottom, yes that is one of my little ones hands holding it down, it was windy that day.
I quilted the 'field' in straight lines to replicate the white lines on a football field. The end zones were stippled as well as the sidelines.
The back is a vintage sheet I picked up a long time ago. The colors were just perfect.
Thanks for stopping by. I do hope that this quilt brings a bit on money to help the cause for cancer.
Here is the link to the other quilts in the festival. I can't wait to see them all.
