twin size bed quilt
Cotton fabric, batting
it was a little difficult to match the prints of two different color versions along the seams of light and dark blue.
Using a home machine to do the over all quilting takes quite a bit of maneuvering skill! I am not used to handling the bulk of material, so echo quilting around all the frogs and leaves required some getting used to. I wanted to hide family names in the quilting, so I needed to be cautious about spacing my stitches to make everything seem evenly distributed.
I wanted to make a usable quilt for my daughter. When I saw this material in a fabric store, it seemed a perfect starting place, as she really liked frogs at that time. I had completed a traditional bed quilt, but wanted to make one that was more unconventional in it’s construction.
