Paying it forward

I made another of my pay it forward gifts. Just one more to do!


Yes, this is some funky and unusual fabric. I chose the frogs for my friend because she just recently won her first law case and her clients were well, frogs.

To add to this gift of a reversible cooking apron, and to have a bit of fun with Hannah, we made pot holders last night.


I like helping her make things. It's hard not to step in and do it myself though. She won't get good at things if I do it for her...

I got one of my quilts back last week ahead of another one that I am waiting on. I hate waiting.


I threw the binding on it. This quilt just makes me happy. I can't explain why I like, I just do. Is it the colors? Mellow and ocean like. Probably.

Where did you get the cool fabrics for the frog apron?? Your projects came out beautiful. You are so much more daring than I when it comes to fabric combos, I don't know that I would have been creative enough to mix those 2 fabrics which would be to my bad as they look awesome together!

That's awesome that you had some Hannah time and I love the colors of the quilt, too!

That apron is so cool! And the pot holders are a great idea to use up any of the extra fabric!!

I saw you comment on my blog, and I went ahead and enabled the e-mail link so you would be able to e-mail me. Thank you so much for participating in the Pay it Forward exchange and letting me play along :cD

I got the batik fabric at a quilt store I worked at a few years ago. Never quite sure what I wanted to do with it but I always liked it.
