Frogs Warm Wishes - Finished

This is the Frogs Warm Wishes quilt again--shown in a previous post (scroll down). The binding is finally finished. I had hoped to have this quilt finished sooner, but other commitments were competing for my attention lately.

I have mentioned before that this is one of my favorite quilt patterns. I just love the "recipe"--a focus fabric or novelty print and 3 contrasting fabrics drawn from the colours in the print. A dash of a fourth fabric drawn from the colours in the novelty print can be added as an inner border to add punch if desired.

Simple piecing.........just straight lines...........no stretchy bias to deal with..............just let the fabrics do all the work
!


This is a picture of the quilt back. I was determined to bust stash with this one so I used all of the leftover fabrics from the front of the quilt and added two pieces of green from my stash to make the piece large enough to use as backing for this quilt.

While surfing the Internet, I discovered a site with interesting facts about frogs. This site mentioned that frogs are a protection symbol for children and promote pleasant dreams. I didn't know this about frogs when I made the quilt, but in hindsight, this information confirms that this will be a great quilt for a young child some day!

  1. Hurray for the finish, Norma. Another one to tick off the list so that's even better!

    Way to bust that stash on the backing I know I had to get creative with a couple of mine lately though with a few less pieces. I will keep this arrangement in mind though.

    Oh and thanks for the "Nice matters" award in your last post--can you tell how far behind I am? Very sweet of you to say. "We aims to please." Do I have to nominate someone else though?

  5. Your frogs quilt is wonderful! The "recipe" would work great with some funky, fun cat material that I have been waiting to use.
