Rrribbet by Barb Tourtillote

Remember me posting about this fabric over at Inchworm Fabrics

I told you how much I so loved it.....





So I got to thinking (we all know how dangerous that is)....and

kept thinking (ya smelling the smoke yet)?

and soooooooooooooo I


took pictures of this....



and this....



and this.....



and this......



and came up with this.....




I need to stitch around the fishing poles, fix the string. I wish I had put the brown in the center square and where I had two frogs fishing, I wish I had put them on the other side so the end frog's pole could go over to the other square. But oh well....I think it turned out pretty cute....even if I say so myself.


I was going to quilt this tomorrow but....it is THIMBLEBERRIES DAY!!!! I think I might make it to this one...anyone else joining us?

That's a brilliant idea! No more searching for applique designs..just look at the fabric! By the way, the fabric is too cute. I don't think I would have the heart to cut into it!

Very cute fabric. Makes me think of a Chinese proverb about a man fishing. Hmm. Going to have to check with my friends in China to see if they'll refresh my memory. Great story/proverb {more than teach a man to fish}.
Love your froggy quilt. Still amazed how much you can accomplish in a day. When are you going to start sharing your organizational tips ? Or admit there are multiple Barbs?

So cute, I didn't realize these were frogs until you did this. I need glasses, I thought they were ballerinas! Ha, I guess not, huh!? Too cute though, I love it...

Adorable! I'm not a big fan of real frogs but I do love stuffed froggies and froggie fabric. Sounds like your mind has been racing with quilting ideas.
