Froggy Pond Gift for My BFF's Mom

I could't share this until now. 
 I have been working on a quilt for my friend's mom for some time now. 
When  I first saw the Frog pattern I knew I had to make it for my friend's mom. 
 She is an avid frog collector. 
 She is also a BIG fan of Zumba, she has been ill recently and is taking care of a spouse that is ill also,
 oh and she shares my mom's name too! 
 Interestingly enough my friend share's my sister's name.  
Coincidence? 
 I think not. 
 I'm pretty sure God brought us together. 
 She is and always has been the yin to my yang. 
OK enough sappyness.

I was talking to my quilter about the pattern and her mom is always looking for embroidery to do 
so I handed off the pattern and cut the fabric, and she did all the embroidery for me! 
 I made the blocks and assembled the quilt and my friend, Liz did the quilting! 
 I finished the binding last weekend and my friend mailed it off to her mom, who received it today.


Made a frog pond for the back too.


Here are some close ups too












Enjoy your new quilt!

I had fun making it for you.

I hope it brightened your day.

I have that pattern but don't have any idea as to when I will be able to start with it. I think that I have all the fabrics I need as well, all bundled up together in a plastic bag, in the large shopping bag that contains my to do projects.....love your work on this.
