I have almost all of the little pieced blocks done and am really liking the look. The piecing, trimming is not so much fun but it's worth it. All of the little duckies will be different colors with orange beaks. They each have a little wing, also. I am making it about six inches wider - 11 triangle blocks instead of nine which adds six inches. In the top picture, I have just thrown some strips up along one side to see how I would like the border. That maybe the way I go. I really like that look and it adds to the scrapiness of the piece. The colors in the last picture are the truest. I was fooling around with the other picture and made it too bright.
This weather today is unbelievable!! What a summer! I have had nothing to crab about (that's not the word I usually use!) since we have not had any big heat spells or really hot, humid days! So nice!
