Log Cabin Baby quilt

I made an applique duck for the center of this baby quilt. You see, I've been tying one quilt in the living room and sewing another at the machine. I made a lot of four inch strips for this little creation. The quilt top measures about 39 by 49 inches, and the center rectangle is 11 by 14 1/2 inches (without the seam allowances added). A very interesting thing occurred yesterday, I received a phone call from a second cousin that I had lost track of for many years. They asked their 11 year old granddaughter to get on the computer and locate me! I was able to send them an email and several family photos. Oh these kids! My 5 year old great-niece can already look up the translation of words on her Mom's I Pad.

This is a lovely baby quilt.

Oh yes, if you need anything fixed with your computer or phone, ask a child. Chances are, it will be fixed in an instant.

Kids these days are unbelievable. I don't think we were that smart? I love the baby quilt. I have not tackled applique yet. My mother and my grandmother appliqued almost all their quilts.
