Paper pieced dancing frogs in a round about quilt contemplation:
Paper piece frog pattern available at:http://www.paperpanache.com/free/guestpats/amobirdfrog.htm will be blowing up to 8.5 X 11 paper sized…so frogs will probably be about 8.5 inches square…frogs and their water backgrounds will be scrappy so no 2 are alike…no sashing…frog next to frog so the blue background can look like dappled blue water, I may use all different blues for the background to give the water more movement…I’m thinking embroidered or button eyes…depending on who will be receiving this quilt.
Inner border will be some water color…no idea if I can locate fabric that really looks like water, waves or droplets (wow that would be cool) inner border will be 3.5 inches in width
Inner green border will be something fun with frogs on it! Frog border will be 6.5 inches in width
Next blue border will be more of the water fabric…this border will also be 3.5 inches in width.
Outer green border I’m hoping to find water lily fabric…I had a scrap of it a couple years ago…only a scrap, got it in a swap…so I think water lily or perhaps some swamp, marsh fabric would be fun! This border will be 6.5 inches in width.
Finish this all off with water and frog prairie points…lovely unisexed green and blue! Probably a baby or lap quilt…as usual this is still in the contemplation stage…each paper pieced frog has 40 pieces total…this one may take me a while once I finally get it off the contemplation rack and into DO IT baggies of paper and fabric!
