Frog Hugs And Quilting!



I've been quilting away for my friends Mary Pat and Karen.  They made this sweet frog quilt to cheer up a friend, and they asked me to do the quilting. 




The quilting design I chose was a swirling vine.  I didn't want to quilt over the frogs, and this design allowed me to go around them easily. It also went with the playful look of the quilt. 




Aren't those frogs ridiculously adorable?




I thought the bright green variegated thread would really add to the whimsy of this super fun quilt!






More swirl quilting!  I know there are plenty of pictures in this post, but there were tons of good ones so I just went with it!






I have no doubt this happy quilt will bring good wishes and cheer to the recipient!
