One of my latest nap-time projects!!

This frog was SO much fun to make! It was a quick project that I literally finished during one of Kyle's nap-times.

Teresa - thanks for sharing your pattern with me. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be the sewer/quilter that I am today without all of your inspiration. Thanks for turning me over to the 'dark side!'

Mom - does the material look familiar? I LOVE that you pass me down your scraps and left-overs. Thanks for keeping me going with lots of fun scraps.

What was fun about this project was that it mixed piecing, quilting, and sewing all into one project. I think this is going to be the new baby's (due in early June!) first stuffed animal.

Side note...My sister-in-law Teresa fill hers with the little hard plastic beady things that you would fill bean bags with. I SEARCHED around here for that stuff and couldn't find it. I ended up filling my frog with the little micro-bead poly-fill foam balls. It made a horrendous mess, but after cleaning up a few times with my vacuum all is well and I am super pleased with the outcome. Because of the light weight of the filler I used, it'll be way more suitable for a small child's toy.
