    I've posted about this frog quilt I'm making before. I've been working on free motion quilting it for the past week. I've only done a little bit of free motion quilting in the past. I've done a table runner, a few very small wall-hangings, and one baby quilt. This quilt is 55 x 55. I'm so happy with the way it's going. I stitched in the ditch of the pieced blocks, and then tried pebbling around the frogs. Today, I worked on putting a leaf design I saw on Leah Day's website in the inner border. It's not perfect, but it's not bad.

    I still need to finish the blue border, and then decide what to do with the outer border. Then I'll be ready to bind it!

    I love what you have done...your doing great, I have been doing some FM and I found it to be fun on small things, a larger quilt is quite the challenge...keep up the good work
