Judy T-Bellingham:Never heard the term frogging before. I like that, much more interesting than seam ripping!
Judy, I was told the "frogging" term comes from rippit-rippit. Get it? :-)

I have not worked on a quilt so far today. It has been just too gorgeous outside my door today. Temp is up to an unbelievable 86 . Practically unheard of at this time in Michigan . Of course, I just had to go outdoors and clean up some of my flower beds. Now I am bushed! Headed for a shower and then a bite to eat. I have to put the binding on a quilt tonight and take it with me in the morning. I'm going to try the method talked about here of sewing it on the back and finishing it from the front with a blanket stitch - wish me luck. Ginny
You asked for a photo of the quilt that was in the picture of my Bargello quilt. Just for you, I posted a photo in my gallery. It's also below. This was one of my first attempts at applique. It's a pattern from Strip-Samplers by Suzanne McNeill
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Thank you Angele...
I did work on a quilt today and finished piecing it. Seneca Falls from PWSC, only one more to go, I still need to layer, baste and quilt the last three, but then that is what Lizzie is for... Today would have been perfect day to get into the sewing room with the door open, it was almost 80 here wahoo... Spring has spung (fingers crossed) on the southern shores of Lake Erie.
Here Seneca Falls:
OMG, I cannot believe it... the very last row... error, error, error... after re-doing the first 3 rows, I did it again. darn!!!!!
Finally after sever days of not quilting I worked on piecing the Carpenter"s Wheel block for my "Underground Railroad Quilt" that I am hand piecing. After taht was dinner and a little time out in the hot tub and swimming pool. Now time to read some of my book before bed.
MMM, pretty quilt
Judy~Your quilt is beautiful. Love everything about it and your applique is great! You should be very proud of this one.

Ms MoomMist, it's a signature, not an error! That's what you tell non-quilters! ;->
(I know how you feel - I've made my share of mistakes.)
Judy, your quilt is lovely! I think you should hop on over to the applique group you did so well on this one :-)
MMM~I'm sorry but you made me laugh. Don't you hate that????????? Be thankful that you hadn't sandwiched it yet. Get out that old seam ripper and start frogging. I think we are all familiar with that part of quilting.
