Making the frogs…
Print the frog templates, and transfer onto the paper side of the Vlieseline Bondaweb, you will need two of each design.
Roughly cut out and fuse to the wrong side of the Lime fabric.
Transfer eyes, pupils, and tummy onto the Bondaweb using the same method, and fuse to the corresponding fabrics. (you will require 4 of each)
Fuse to the main frogs
Lets get sewing…
Cut four 10 ½” squares from the cream/white fabric.
Cut five 10 ½” squares from the frog print fabric.
Join the squares alternately, beginning with the frog print fabric, make 3 rows of 3 squares.
From the Candy pink fabric cut; two 30 ½” x 2” strips and two 34” x 2” strips
(If you are using a FQ, join the strips together using the method shown below – Press joining seams open)
Join the candy strips to the top and bottom of the main quilt, trim away any excess.
Add the remaining candy strips to either side, trim excess.
From the pale green fabric, cut; two 34” x 4” strips and two 40” x 4” strips.
Add to the main the quilt using the same method as the candy pink strips.
Fuse the two ‘whole’ frogs to the centre of the left and right-hand white squares.
Position the remaining frog peeking in from the left and right-hand side of the top and bottom white fabric
Create the backing by cutting the following.
42” x 22” Pale green fabric
42” x 11” frog print fabric pieces
42” x 11” lime green fabric
See photo below to see placement
Using Odif 505 spray, sandwich the Vlieseline wadding between the top and back quilt
Quilt using your preferred method. Trim excess wadding and fabric, by cutting the pale green strips on the top quilt to measure 3 ½”.
Cut 1 ½” strips from the lime green fabric to create binding.
Join to your quilt using your preferred method.
Using Gutermann top stitch thread in grey, add details to your frogs, using a backstitch.
(neck, mouth, eye divide and nose)
To complete your quilt, use FMQ to secure your frog appliques, using a pale cream or green thread.
