Quilt top sewn, pillowcase finish in progress

Frog quilt top sewn together

Lily pad fabric has been in my stash for years

Tonight I sewed the quilt top together. It looks very much like I envisioned. The frog in the corner is really cute, and I love all the different scrappy greens. The lily pad fabric pops.

Shamrock fabric for back of  quilt

For the back of the quilt, I was shopping for green fabric when I saw a shamrock print. I remembered that Sara had a few Care Bears with shamrocks on their tummies. So the shamrock fabric will be the back of the quilt.

I layered the quilt sandwich for a pillowcase finish and sewed around the perimeter. Tomorrow night I’ll turn the quilt right side out, top stitch around the edges, then tie a whole bunch of knots.

I’ll get the quilt done on time for Thursday, Sara’s last day of work before she becomes a stay-at-home mom.
