The frog and 5 pounds of thread

Maybe that is a slight exaggeration....I  did use 5 bobbins worth to quilt this wall hanging.  It is 44 inches by 37 inches, so that's pretty small for all that thread!  And the frog and dragonfly are thread painted.  So my exaggeration may not be too far off.  I do like how the light moves across  this one, giving a color wash effect. 
Evening Serenade

I decided to call it Evening Serenade because we usually hear the frogs by the falls outside our window each night. 
Insight:  I need a quilt stand to get better photos.  It is hard to crop out fingers and such without distorting the borders.

  1. Oh! he turned out marvelously, didn't he!? I love your name for the quilt. My mom used to say the frog singing was a sign of rain. Your quilt evokes that kind of tranquil feeling, doesn' it!? Well done!
