Frogtastic Quilt

A long, long time ago there was a sweet little toddler that asked her mummy for a "froggie" quilt.

In her eyes froggies were the fairest of them all.

Flash forward several years (the toddler is now in full time school - cough) her mummy ... finally ... finished that quilt.


You see, the mummy wanted to have a play with this one ... put this and that in it ... cut the fabric this way and that way ... and work out just how to incorporate ALL the colours and ALL the frog fabric that the toddler wished for.

Can you spot the froggies?

Then, how to quilt it?


Pond ripples were the answer ... echo quilting rippling out from each of the 3D pinwheel blocks ... aka ... lily pads.


Once the binding was complete ... they all lived happily ever after because (lucky for mum) she still thinks fogs are awesome.


The End.

Photos were taken in Kings Park Botanical Gardens, Perth, Western Australia.

  3. Love it! I especially like how you set the blocks. I am considering doing a pink quilt, but thought it might be overwhelming. The half pink-half white idea is a great alternative.

  15. What a great way to get in all those frog fabrics. You have inspired me to attack that bin full of ladybug fabrics I have been collecting. I love how you put together those different fabrics so that they all play nice together even though they are so different. And I love your quilting pattern - ripples in the pond emanating out from the centra lily pad. Very clever.
