    Well, I have been quilting like a fool this week (when current events would let me!). So here are the last two quilts I needed to finish before our neighborhood Garage Sale in June.

    The frog quilt was the worst experience. I got it all set up on the frame and ready to quilt with my Bailey, got three bobbins wound, and now can't find the darn bobbin holder to put the bobbin into the machine. Those darn Gremlins! Anyway, I took it off and FMQ on my Pfaff. And I think it turned out great! This was how it was meant to be quilted, I guess! Hopefully the bobbin case will show up sometime soon.

    The flowered quilt came out so ugly that I was determined to "fix" it. So I appliqued those big bright yellow flowers on it. Sure looks better now!

    Thanks for looking and for letting me vent! LastGrandma

    I call this Frog Frenzy -- the quilting makes the frogs look 3-D

    Alternated quilting direction on each block -- you can almost see the 3-D!

    Don't really have a name for this one. The piecing is called Freaking Easy Quilt. Probably looks better all in one color, did not like it plain!

    Those are both darling quilt. All those little frogs are so cute. I love the daisy quilt. Those flowers are the perfect touch. Great job on both and thanks for sharing.

    Gorgeous flower quilt and a cute frog quilt. Your pieced background makes the flowers pop. A solid background would have washed out the flowers, IMHO

    Your are right about the frogs almost looking 3-D. Wonderful job. Love what you did with the second quilt too.

    Awesome save with the big yellow flowers! Great job. I probably would have added something, too.

    Really like the addition of the flowers. I like the jumping froggy quilt, too.

    You can't find the bobbin case? Seems someone on this forum a day or so ago lost hers. Her DH and she hunted and went through garbage cans again and again. Finally she found it.

    IN THE MACHINE!!! She'd put it back absentmindedly and forgot about it.
