Duckling Paddles

I'm not sure about you but I like to follow Mereth's blog for the wonderful scrap quilts that she makes - and she is quite prolific! Recently she made a quilt (the finished quilt was posted today) with blocks she called Duck Paddles.

I was enamored with the block after reading several posts and finally decided to draft it up in EQ last week. BTW - EQ calls the block Crosses and Crowns which just doesn't have the same appeal as duck paddles. I wasn't in the mood for a full sized quilt so I drafted the blocks at just 5" each with the whole quilt about 18"x24" finished. I originally planned to use pink as Meredith had but, having no pink yardage in the stash, opted for this great turquoise color.

And since these are small blocks...I call them Duckling Paddles!

Yes, some blocks have multiple names - I call this Ducks Foot and I also know it as Crosses & Crowns. I think it is just darling and love the color.

Oh that is gorgeous! I love the corners in the border, that's a neat idea. Hmmm, could I do one with blue sashing too....

Darling, darling!! And I agree -- I like your name for it much better!!! I like the 'water' look border ... and the duck foot cornerstones! :)

Great little quilt. The size I'm sure qualifies it as a miniature, good for you!
