    Arrow Dogs and Frogs #1, a "For Kids Only' Scrappy

    This whole quilt came together in 3 days! Everything was already cut and done including the piano keys for this quilt. The only thing I had to do was cut the corner triangles! I'm showing it before I even have the piano keys on, but you get the idea. I decided to do one block with a different color in each corner in special recognition to children as they love to mix the colors up! The children will love the sparkly snowflakes in one of the snowmen fabrics although the camera doesn't show them sparkling.

    Special recognition and thanks to Wolph33, MaggiesMom and Gollytwo for the fabrics they've given me that are in this quilt! I loved every minute of putting it together! I have enough leftover blocks for Dogs and Frogs #2. It just so happened that the pics of the first two blocks in the quilt are dogs and frogs so that's how it got its name. It's so much fun! Here are some close-ups for you. Thanks for looking!!

    They are nice colorful quilts, the kind kids like. Its nice to do something you enjoy so much.
    Each day is a blessing, so do something you love each day.

    I especially like the block that has a kitty that has been cut in half with turtles in the middle - looks like the kitty is looking at the turtles....

    Thank you! That is my favorite quilt block! I always think of the Amish as it's one of their main patterns too!
