Yes, my daughter worked hard on this quilt, she actually made about 10(?) more blocks for it before she quit, but earlier this year there was a quiltingboard member whose son died and he loved frogs so she was asking for help to make a frog quilt, So I went digging and cleaning to find these old relics and I sent her the other (10?) blocks.....That is when daughter saw them and got all sentimental. I said,you're never going to finish this, we lost the pattern, you disliked the contrast, you have 3 small kids, no time to quilt.....and this lady could really use a happy boost in her life. She agreed, off they went (but I kept the 4 behind for a small remembrance and out of respect for her)

I have a frog UFO in my sewing room, I think it's time to get at it. Thanks for the inspiration.

Love the story and the quilt. The story needs to be on your label.
