Ducklings update!

Looking for our awesome fat quarter bundle giveaway? Click here!

Here is a note for you Lilypadquilters, from the eight ducklings:

We know these are not very good pictures, but we wanted to show you how we are growing . . .

We are about triple the size we were in this post, and we are even starting to get some feathers! Whoohooo! It won't be long before we can try to fly! (Someone is singing, "I Believe I Can Fly" in the background...)

We have games that we love to play -- Who Can Paddle Longest With Butt in the Air and Head Underwater is fun, and our favorite one is seeing Who Can Make the Biggest Splash in our little pool . . . that one is crazy fun when all eight of us are in the water at once!

We also like to spend time on the ledge of our "pool" just chillin' and enjoying the scenery. Snoodles says she will get more pictures of us soon, with a better camera! We'll get some glamour shots! Peep, peep!

Hi, y'all, I'm back! This is Snoodles, and I just want to let you know that Padsworth is working on a project announcement that will be ready soon. We are going to put together a project that will go with our Pets on Quilts show --- it will be something that you can do during the year to help shelters and animal rescue efforts that are local to you --- and you'll get credit for it when the show rolls around!
We're ironing out the details and will let you know as soon as possible!

Tho' I don't usually do this, because I get so many requests, this one is near and dear to my heart; I want to help our veterans and service members when I can. So, I wanted to pass along an effort from one of my followers for the veterans in her town --- perhaps you have some red, white, and blue blocks, or blocks left over from a Quilt of Valor project, or just something fun and colorful (and fast!) . . . Here is Tammara's message:
Love the blog and I have been following for awhile, I have been asked to make 35 lap quilts for our local veterans in the Birchwood nursing home in Traverse City, Michigan and I am wondering if you would like to make one for us? Nothing really fancy; just something to let them know we appreciate what they did. We are planning to deliver to them in December for Christmas. Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much, Tammara
Since it is lap quilts they are looking for, it shouldn't take long to put one together -- let me know in a comment if you can help, and I will introduce you by email to Tammara. Please make certain that I have your email to respond to you . . . nothing is more frustrating than seeing "no-reply" pop up, when I want to reply to you!!
I'm linking up with Katherines' Corner and The Thursday Favorite Things blog hop! Her co-host is Carol, at Everything Home with Carol!


  1. I would love to make a rag quilt, my newest craze! But they make great lap quilts.

  2. I have to ask...what did you end up naming the ducklings?

    1. I decided to use the comment that suggested the names of sewing machines....Singer, Janome, Bernina, Brother, etc!!

  3. I can't believe how big they are getting. It won't be long before they fly the coop!!

  4. Please pass on to me her contact email, I have a few patriotic blocks made that I can pass on.

  5. Ohhhh the baby duckies!!!! They are just precious. Thank you for continuing to take care of the little sweeties =D

  6. Ohh the babies are getting so big! What are you going to do when they fly off? I am really sorry I cant help out on the lap quilts this time, I am working on lap quilts for a Christmas project for my local nursing home.

  7. Thank you for the awesome support with the lap quilts

  8. The ducks are getting so big! I can probably help but not until Nov b/c of the project I am working on for our service men and women right now. After that I'm in for a block or two.

  9. Wow! the Babys is cute! Thanks for the update!

  10. I love little ducklings and yours are so cute. I'm looking forward to hearing more about your project idea. Sounds like fun and for a great cause. I have made pet beds for animals living in shelters. The theory is if they get a good nights sleep in a comfy bed, they present themselves better and have a higher chance of adoption. Sounds silly, but I can tell the difference of a pet living in a shelter that sleeps on a comfy bed vs one that doesn't.


  11. wow they are growing fast. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things hop. Your participation helps make it a success.I'm sorry I am slow to visit I am fighting a nasty head cold and my time on the computer has been limited.Wishing you a beautiful day .xo
