Ahh, finally, I can show you a whole bit of the secret quilt, because this is a bit I entirely made up as part of an oopsie fix! I love this frog, I really do (even if he creeps Cherie out), and his colours happened to fit perfectly into my fix plan, which was a double bonus. My original fix wasn’t quite wide enough, so I thought I’d add in a porthole block with this wee guy in it.
I haven’t made a porthole since FQR, but it was one of those techniques I knew I’d find a multitude of uses for, especially for odd shapes where an inset circle type approach either wouldn’t work or wouldn’t be easy. Although there are no other hearts in the quilt, I’m going to go with a loopy heart FMQ approach for the quilting, which should tie it all nicely together (I hope!)
He looks great in that porthole!
he is doing a marvellous job of peeping! Love it!
An oopsie?! Surely not… He looks wonderful so he was clearly meant to be there! lol Really looking forward to seeing this quilt!
I heart your froggy heart!! What a sneaky tease of your secret quilt…
very cute! awe cherie hahaha
He is kind of creepy in a good sort of way. Lovely block.
Ok so how come your oopsies look inspired works of brilliance like this and mine just look sh**t?
I totally just made grabby hands at the screen. That is awesome!
I have cuter frogs on fabric…those ones are just something else….
A fun idea all the same. =D
Very cute! And an inspired way to fix a problem. You rock.
He's just waiting on that all important kiss! Jxo
That's an oopsie? Really, really want to see this secret business. I may even have a tantrum…
That frog is perfect in the heart. Seems the oopsie might have been meant to be.
I love Mr. frog. Sometimes it's good to make a mistake. I'm sure it will be where the eye gets drawn to in the quilt.
Well if this is a mistake, there's no hope for me! It's lovely, although I have to admit I find the frog a litlee creepy!
You would never know any mistake was made! Looks great!
Wow this is jaw dropping.
I love everything about that little froggy chap, especially as he reminds me of playing Frogger as a kid.
Love your porthole. How did you get it so perfect?
The little prince is looking great in his porthole!
What a cute way to do the frog and the fly!! I like it.
