Frogs and Toads and Turtles, Oh My!
Name of Maker: Michele Groth
Frogs and Toads and Turtles, Oh My! - This quilt was one of those projects that suffered from creeping functionality! It started out to be a simple little wall hanging. Along the way I decided to make it a bed quilt for my son. I added some paper pieced squares I had made years ago. I made the quilt in four sections so that I could quilt in details. Putting the four sections together was difficult, but worked. Each square has the name of the frog, toad or turtle stitched on it. I free motioned the details on the critters as well as free motion quilting the borders. I taught myself to free motion dragonflies, frogs, and realistic turtle shells. I quilted a circle of four frogs in each corner by drawing them on water-soluble stabilizer, quilting, and then wetting down the corners.
