WE Frogs

Posted by geezerfolks (My Page) on

I came across a pattern called Wickedly Easy so tried it with some (mostly) $2 yd fabric from Walmart. It takes 6 fat quarters so there's not a lot of $$ tied up in this one. It does go fast, and I like the concept, however, the next one I do will be more controlled rather than as scrappy as this one is. I think the long narrow strip in each block one color throughout and the short narrow strips, 2 colors. I want to get away from the same fabric touching each other, too. I have a bunch of tractor fabric I want to try with this pattern.......

RE: WE Frogs

Very cute! I have some of the same fabric, but have not used it. Some child will love this.

RE: WE Frogs

Thanks, Carolyn. Maybe I'll give this one to my nephew to have on hand in his police car. I have the tractor fabric cut and will post a pic of that when I get it done so you can see the difference.

RE: WE Frogs

Your quilt is adorable.
What a great idea for a police officer to have something like this in his car. It is just the reason for having it that grabs my heart.
I'll be looking for the tractors.

RE: WE Frogs

Thank you, Sally. (My oldest daughter is named Sally) I was able to get the tractor blocks sewed together yesterday and I hope to get borders on it today.

RE: WE Frogs

That's cool!

My guild donates our charity quilts to the Sherriff's department for their vehicles. Quilts are there to be given out to children/women pulled from situtations like battering/abuse, etc. They get to keep the quilt, too. We also keep them supplied with extras, too.

RE: WE Frogs

What a wonderful idea, to have a pretty quilt on hand for people in trouble, and someone's going to be comforted by that quilt.

RE: WE Frogs

I like the tractors too, but this one is my favorite.
