    pink and purple frog fabric

    Do you remember that pink and purple frog fabric a few years back, it was at Walmart and JoAnns for awhile, a complete collection of coordinating fabrics?

    I was organizing my sewing room when I discovered a bag of this fabric-Walmart $1 a yard stuff. I probably have ~10 yards of various fabrics. So, my question is did anyone make quilts with it? Could you post your photos? I know it was pretty popular at least in my area because just about everyone remembers it. I'll see if I can get a photo of my pile later.

    Usually I have a pattern and then go search for the fabric. I'm not good with figuring out a pattern for a specific fabric.

    I'm thinking about the QFK basic 4 patch idea- http://www.quiltsforkids.org/pattern...quilt-pattern/. but that's kind of boring. Maybe Warm Wishes...that may work...I'll have to see if that would work.

    I made several kids quilts with it ( may still have some), but I gave them all away. Don't think I have any pictures. Also made a backpack for a girl who loves frogs
    added-I found one in Warm Wishes pattern

    I love that fabric. Where did you find it? I need about half a yard or more if possible.

    I have the fabric, but never made anything with it either. I collect frog fabric and have a hard time cutting it up.

    I worked in Walmart fabric and yep...I have some of that. Used some in my great grandson's baby quilt about a year ago. LOL

    There was so much of it at the time it was released. Everytime I went fabric shopping there were entire sections dedicated to this fabric line. I even have the green/pink/yellow camo fabric that goes with it. I'll post a photo of the fabrics tomorrow.

    I only bought it because it was $1-2 a yard and I make a lot of comfort quilts for kids. I bought mostly the frogs so I need to find some more coordinating fabrics. I like the yellow and blue on the warm wishes. I have those pink frogs too.

    If you do a google image search for pink and purple frogs there are still people selling it.

    I have a few pieces of the green. I think everyone in my guild has a quilt with some of the frog fabric in it somewhere. LOL
    Got fabric?

    My problem is I get quilters paralyzis when it comes to cutting out a new project. As long as the fabric is whole, it has the possibility of so much but once I cut it...maybe another pattern will show up tomorrow that would have been perfect for it. So I collect and fondle my fabric and dream quilty things. Arrange it into piles that might go together, then change my mind.
