A Little Yellow Duck

A Little White Duck sittin' in the water..... does anyone remember that song? It was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I kept hearing that in my head when I made this card. Having seen some of the fabric cards I thought I would try to make one. I really like them . My youngest daughter just had another baby and I thought it would be a good time to make one and also to try some Free Motion quilting. You can see that I don't have much imagination for card making but I learned a lot and had fun, besides I got to practice some free motion quilting and that couldn't be bad, right? I did use a decorative stitch on the outside of the card but I am not a pro at using decorative stitches. Why do I have them all if I don't use them? I didn't think I did a very good job on it but I am sending it to her reguardless of what it really looks like. She is used to my"experiments" and I think she will enjoy it. I have to make a quilt for this baby but I am already in the hole on this twice. This is her 4th and I am ashamed to say that I have not made #2 or #3's quilts yet.

I did make a quilt for baby #1, it was a machine embroidered quilt with a sail boat theme. I did post about it in July of 08 (click on Machine Embroidered Quilt just below to see the quilt)
