Thanks for the wonderful tutorial. You are one clever lady. So glad that Mdm.Samm asked you to be a guest. I am following your blog.

So enjoyed your tutorial at Sew We Quilt...adorable frog!! Your work is so clever and fun!! TFS

Diana said...

That frog is sew cute. I don't think even with your great tutorial that I could make it look like that.
Thanks for sharing.
gee, and three great giveaways, how to choose?
I think 1, the rulers, 2. the threads and scissors, and 3 the picture.
That way if I win one of the first two I could share with my Mom who recently began quilting with a 70 year break between. Hard to share a picture.
Thanks.

Sallie said...

I love frogs, too, and yours is adorable! Thanks for sharing!

Marcia W. said...

Your tut at sewwequilt today makes making portrait quilts look so much easier than would think. The follower box never showed on my screen, so used the follow tab in your blog header to hook into blogger. Hope it worked OK. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Patty said...

Just saw your frog tut. Love it!

AlthemeseB said...

Hats off to you today!!! Love your tut today at sewwequilt. Today's tut gave me the nudge I need to finish that portrait of my grand daughter.

Janet said...

Your work is amazing, and isn't it interesting how so many of us can feel that "I'm a Quilter" is a defining statement. THAT makes me happy!

LeslieG said...

Thanks for the picture tutorial. My son has a liking for frogs so he would love one of these. He and I have also played with the art of Zentangle. There are some great quilts that incorporate both art forms.

Thanks for sharing.
