A tribute to frogs everywhere!

I had the most fun today with the, "It's Not Easy Being Green", quilt for my grandson. It is featured in the August 2009 Quilters World magazine. It's 49"x73".

It calls for Batik fabrics so I used those thru out. It also calls for machine applique which I CANNOT DO AT ALL!, so I hand appliqued with blanket stitch and my favorite Valdani threads. I got impatient so put the top together before I finished the frogs, lol! When I got to the outer border I remembered I had a couple bolts of different water lilies. I used the plain one and am very happy with my choice. I love it and hope Liam does to.

Tomorrow I am going to machine quilt it, thanks be to Amanda Jean from crazymomquilts. She is the most awesome inspiring quilter in the world! I only hope she realizes how much she inspires others to bite the bullet and plow ahead!

Enjoy, now go quilt something...Elaine

  4. Hi Elaine, I have popped over from Jenny of Elephantz's blog and enjoyed reading your day to day activities. Love the pic of the puppies and the felting. I am yet to try the felting..have had plans to but as always am too darn busy.
