Default Log Cabin made entirely of peepers

Hi all
I am trying to find a pattern to make a log cabin block. A spry young man with a walker told me his wife had bought it for his walker as the seat was hard
It is very unusual and noone around here in Queensland that I know has a clue.
Peepers were new to me as it was but to have a block made with them was sweet.

Anyone know of it?

Thanks
Heather

I'm not sure if you are looking to make the cover from log cabin blocks or not. Peepers to me, are chicks, so I don't think I would want something made out of baby chicks. hmmm......

Do you mean "peeps"?

Peeps are traditional Easter candy here. It's the one food product that is better stale ;-)
The candy used to come only in yellow, but now are available in a variety of colors.

Here's the fabric line info:

Here in NY peepers are teeny tiny 2.5 cm frogs that are peeping their hearts out looking for mates! Definitely Not for sitting on.

Well, here's a nice, easy-to-follow tutorial on making a log cabin block.
You can make it out of whatever you choose; even turn it into a pillow top.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that was wondering how you would make a quilt out of little frogs or marshmallow chicks.

I wonder if he could have meant that "eggcrate" foam stuff. It kinda looks like peeps . . . .

So the peeper is the cushion for the walker? And its cover is a log cabin block?

Inquiring minds want to know - what are peepers in Australia?

Peepers are baby carriers...the kind, usually jersey (?), that's a sling-like wrap to carry your baby in front so you have your hands free.
