I finished this one up just in time for it to hang in the SCVQA Quilt Show in early 2013. It was pieced many years before that using paper piecing. The back has my maiden name, so I must have had the quilt sandwich done in early 2009 at the latest. I didn't free motion quilt yet, so then it just sat around waiting for me to learn that skill. ;-)
I think this was the first quilt that I entirely free motion quilted. I stippled on a medium-large scale over the majority of the quilt and decided to do something a little fancier for the border, using Leah Day's Modern Art free motion filler for the border pattern. It was a little tricky, but I love it!
I'm linking up with Leah Day's May 9 FMQ Link Up.
Love the colors. It's a really nice way to integrate in a super-cute frog fabric. It's like a lily pond with flowers and flowing water from the free-motion quilting.
PS I clicked on the Leah Day link, and just now finished looking at her gallery and reading her biography. Wow. Her gallery is inspirational, and separately and independently, her biography is inspirational!
She is SO awesome! I spend long lengths of time on her site and she's the only reason I know how to free motion quilt.
Thanks! Purples/blues/greens are definitely my favorites. I can take no credit for the specific fabric selections, other than the frogs. My friend at the time, Nancy, made all my coordinating fabric choices for me. :-)
