Hooray!!! I've completed my 1st project of the Spring 2012 UFO Club session. I'm SO excited (because the baby's not even here, yet!)
This quilt began as a group of Roman Stripe/Rail Fence blocks rejected by another quilter. I couldn't believe my luck when I looked in a scrap bag (given to me by a friend) and found more than a dozen completed quilt blocks.
What's a quilter to do?!
Well, I'll tell you what I did... I immediately thought "Quilt Starter."
What a wonderful gift!!!
Down went the blocks onto my "design floor" and out came all of the various green fabrics in my stash. These gave the quilt a jungle vibe that worked well with the colorful frogs in the blocks.
The name came from the fabric for the inner border. It looked like fish eggs to me. I thought that the bright colors worked well with the froggy fabric and the green "eggs" worked to tie it in with the rest of the quilt.
I quilted an assortment of leaves and vines, further expanding on the jungle theme. Hopefully, Mom and baby will like the quilt.
If not, they can always return it! I would gladly make them another custom made quilt because I absolutely LOVE this one and will be sad to see it go.
Until next time...
