Thumbies,Pins, and Frog Skin

Well I was told to make a 18" by 22" pieced and quilted rectangle for a frog door stop. We are going to make them Monday night at the Orchard Quilters Meeting . Luanne is the hostess this month so she thought we should make frogs. I am not sure if it will make a good frog. I like all the greens together. We will have to see how he comes out with his new skin.
I have made about 50 of these, for quilt friends gifts. They were very handy for the Christmas quilt groups party favors. It's a lot of fun to use you 4" scraps of fun fabrics. I find mine very handy when sewing at the sewing machine. I don't miss place it.

All they are is a 4" sq. folded in 1/2 corner to corner and sew around the edge with a 1/4" seam leaving a opening at one corner to turn .Stuff firm and stitch closed Put the 2 points together and stitch. Your Quilt friends will love them.
We have been watching the geese flying and landing across the highway from us. There have been hundreds every day. They spend the night and go in the morning. We saw eagles following them today. They get the stragglers. The Robbins are all back for all most 2 weeks now. We have some that nest in and apple tree in the front yard.
It's nice to think Spring is just about here.
