This past weekend while at our family reunion in Tennessee, we snuck out to explore downtown Nashville. (Anything to get away from that nasty hotel room). One of our favorite places to go in downtown Nashville is Hatch Show Print, a traditional printing shop known for their bold and creative posters and prints. They have tons of old Grand Ole Opry posters as well as posters advertising more contemporary concerts, and they also have really cool art prints.
A few years ago we bought a duck poster at Hatch Show and have always hung it in our current baby room. Now that our youngest is almost 4 – we might have to find a creative way to repurpose it or pass it along to another little one. Anyway – being at Hatch Show reminded me of how much I love this particular print. And my kids, trailing behind me on the streets of Nashville, reminded me of a mother duck with her little ones in a row.
So there you have the inspiration for this weeks free machine appliqué design: a duck. And I sized it to fit in a 4″ x 4″ hoop. I hope you find this one useful. I am thinking it might be cute on a baby towel or t-shirt combined with a name? Let me know if you use it and please send the pics!
