    With some encouragement from my hand quilting friend, I frog stitched the whole quilt top, added another row, green sashing and now it's ready for borders. What do you think of it now?

    I love it. Where did you get the pattern?. It looks like it went together real well. However, I've never heard of the frog stitch.
    Is that by hand or machine? Its very nice. l like big blocks.
    Your fabric is very cute. :thumbup:

    I confess when I first looked at the picture, I thought the bedspread material was a boder on the quilt and I wondered 'what was she thinking?' LOL

    Than I figured out where the top ended and thought 'beautiful!'

    Frog stitching is when you “rippit” all out. Meaning she took it apart with the seam ripper …. :) :)

    I machine pieced it and will hand quilt it.

    Thanx for the chuckle! My borders will be blue, tan, light brown and medium brown. Still pondering on the sequence and whether I have enough of the sunflower fabric left over to do corner stones, or just maybe one set of corner stones. Ponder, ponder, ponder.

    I got my basic inspiration from the January Block of the Month. I modified it a bit, as you will see when you check out the BOM. It wasn't too bad and I'm pleased I did as well as I did.
