    I do not have the pattern for these.

    I have been doing some quilting for "Project Warmth" which is Charity Quilts for many different things including Fire victims, Pediatric Unit at the Hospital, Cancer patients, WAVI, and many other units. I think I have quilted about 40 since I got my LA back in April. I thought I would post the pictures of some of them. These first 3 are just adorable.
    Other people have done the piecing on most of these so I do not have a pattern but think they are show worth showing.
    All the Fabric for these are donated, as well as the batting. Quite often the batting is pieced and sometimes can be interesting to work with because they use what they have and usually what is donated is different types.

    I love those quilts and I actually have the frog pattern. It is called Beautiful Swimmers and was in the July/August 1996 QNM. It is a variation of Drunkards Path.

    I love all of your quilts! Is the frog pattern available somewhere? I see it was in a quilting magazine, just wondering if it was somewhere on line...

    It was mentioned that it is in a magazine. I have just quilted these for charity quilts and do not know who pieced them. Sorry I don't know where they pattern may be. I have heard that it is a drunkards path design so maybe put that in and see what happens for a search.
