The Hoppy Quilts

Two more finishes this week, the very cute Hoppy quilts! One in green for a boy,

Hoppy quilt in green
























and one in pink for a girl.

It  looks like these frogs just jumped onto the quilts - they are so darned cute!

 Using the fusible applique method, their little bodies aren't stuck to the quilt top, giving them a bit of dimension. If I had had the forethought, I would have put a little extra batting inside them to really puff them up, though they look great the way they are.

I liked the quilting that was used on Hoppy in the Flip & Fuse Quilts book,


and figured out how to quilt a continuous line with minimal backtracking.

Just love the look it gives to these blocks!

And can't forget the backs. Many thanks to my neighbor who was selling off her stash - I've put the frogs to good use.

I have really been enjoying the interfacing applique technique, can't you tell? So far, four quilts. Seed Mix, Unlimited, and these two. And there's another project lined up, and a couple more in my head. I'll give some progress reports in a few days.

Have a great day quilting!
