Hoppy - A Work in Progress

It feels really good when quilt ideas finally come to reality - Seed Mix and Unlimited can be checked off my list. And I'm still fascinated with applique. Yep, you guessed it, a couple more quilts are in the works.










At  first, because I had the other two quilts to experiment with regarding interfacing applique, I thought I wouldn't make any of the quilts in the Flip & Fuse Quilts book. After taking another look, I decided on the challenge of appliqueing frogs. Crazy huh?

Modifying the Hoppy pattern to a smaller size, fabrics were pulled for both a boy version and a girl version. With a smaller sized quilt, I could also use just one frog per top, instead of three, cutting down on the time spent turning frog legs.


After a Sunday sewing (it was raining - hallelujah!), this is the stage the Hoppy quilts are at. Isn't that frog adorable?? Though his legs look narrow, he wasn't that hard to turn. Just a bit time consuming, but a great project to work on while watching TV.

Still a long way to go, though they should be finished this week. Hmm, what else can I applique?
