Froggy quilt exericse

Photos: An exercise in machine piecing, about 14" wide inside the border. This is from the photo below (taken from Rainforest by Thomas Marent – love the photos in that book).

I see that I over simplified the froggie’s tummy in addition to making it look too skinny, and I could have made a few other adjustments. The mouth, for instance, is not obvious enough. I’m tempted to take out my paintbrush and add a bit of shading (will do). This was a lot of fun, though. I loved the challenge, though sewing the little toes just about wore me out.


We are currently driving down the Price Canyon in Utah (if all goes according to plan), nearing our destination, Grand Junction, Colorado.
