Finished Froggy baby Quilt!

I finished this quilt all in a weekend.  I love this type of quilt.  It is meant to be loved, dragged around, thrown up on, and just plain abused.  I don't put huge amounts of time into these quilts, just love and inspiration.  It has fleece on the back and no batting and is a quilt-as-you-go technique.

Here is my froggy up close.  I appliqued him on with needle turn technique.  My husband, Gary did the details on him while I embroidered him.  The frog pattern I got out of a coloring book.  This picture shows up the colors better.  The fabric with the circles that look like olives or eyeballs was my inspiration.  I fell in love with it at first sight.  The eyeballs on the frog were taken from that fabric, fussy cut and then made into very small yo-yos and then turned over and appliqued onto the frog.  I hope the new baby will love it as much as I do.  He is to be born in February and is the first grandson of a dear friend.


  1. LOVE how it turned out! It's so soft and snuggly too...sure to be a fave!

  2. The quilt is adorable! Sometimes simple is the best.


  3. I've been looking around trying to get ideas for a quilt for my first grand baby and think I just may have found something here. Thanks for the inspiration!
