Hey, sailor

With all the other things I’ve been involved in lately and the fact that it’s summer and much too nice to stay indoors, I haven’t been doing much sewing. But I did finish a new pillow last week.

Sailor Duck

This one features a quilt block that I finished embroidering last winter—a little duck in a sailor hat strutting his stuff. I added some vintage feedsack cottons—a blue and white stripe and a red-yellow-blue floral—then accented it with two matching vintage buttons.

I have so many cute baby things (and lots of these quilt blocks), so look for more pillows like this in the future. Great for baby gifts!
