Micah's Frog Quilt

A nearly-30-hour-ER-weekend-shift-schedule equals a little nervous energy for me, so I decided to put it to good use yesterday and besides transplanting lilacs and oak trees, cleaning and reorganizing my room and sorting my clothes pile, I made this cute little quilt top for Micah. A neighbor lady had cleaned out her quilting stash a couple of months ago and this frog material was from some curtains she had in there. I have not made Micah a quilt just for him since he has been home. Grandma Lee made him one to bring with to India, and with the thoughts of limiting his attachment items I decided not to make one too quick. Now 2 1/2 years later I was feeling a bit guilty and finally had the gumption to start this one. It was the perfect theme as we had just been catching frogs together in the pond today.

It looks tricky, but it is actually a beginners pattern from the April 2010 Quilters World magazine that I received a free sample copy of. I just may be ordering myself a subscription as there are others in this one issue that I have marked to start to add to my stash of other half done projects. The little frogs peeking out are so cute!

And I love the prairie points!

There's one little boy who is excited for his mommy to get some blue flannel for the back, and there is another big boy who wants a frog quilt now too, as well as a certain little girl who has dug out her special India quilt again, and not to mention a dad who says he would really, really like a new quilt for his bed. Maybe this mom needs to go to another quilting retreat.

Too cute! I look forward to learning to quilt, but have decided it just wouldn't be smart at this stage in life. Far too many other fun things taking priority!
