Mom's ROCK!

My mom has passed so I have to enjoy and celebrate my friend's moms.
 I was out when I saw an amazing pattern that had embroidered frogs on it made into a quilt.
 My BFF, the one that got kicked in the head by her horse, her mom collects all things frogs.
 Of course I thought she *needed* this quilt.
 I know that I don't have time to do all the embroidery and put the quilt together.
 What to do, what to do?

Froggy Embroidery Quilt

See what I mean?
 I was talking to another friend, my LAQ Liz,
 and asked her if her mom might like to stitch these for me if I gave her the fabric and the floss?
So she asked her mom and voila!

I think this one is my favorite
Thanks Jane!!

For the frog quilt

I'm hoping to get these pressed and trimmed up this weekend.
 If I'm lucky I may get the blocks cut out too.
 I really need to get on my dad's quilt first though so it may not happen this weekend.

As much as I am happy to be back at work, it does take up all my time,
 At least I have another month away from the gym.
 I didn't realize how much of my time was taken up with going to the gym too.

 Last night DH asked me where I was going.
 I looked at him, puzzled, b/c he knows I am not going anywhere.
 I answered, "I'm not going anywhere". 
He just smiled. 
OK...I get it.

I love the frogs. This will indeed be a very special quilt made by very special moms for a very special mom.

What a cute quilt! Every block is just adorable, and I love the way the blocks are set. And you were very clever to get it started so you could give it to your friend's mom! Very thoughtful!
