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!
