Conway, Arkansas has had a festival called Toad Suck Daze since 1983. For years I collected T-shirts as I loved the toad (don’t call them frogs) graphics. I finally quit collecting and wearing them, but couldn’t bring myself to just throw them away. So I asked my sisters and friends for shirts to “fill in” gaps when I decided to make a quilt of the shirts.
The quilt is machine pieced and quilted. I did the piecing, but due to the size and weight of the quilt paid a quilting friend with a heavy long-arm machine to do the quilting. It is 63 in X 80 in. I finished the quilt and gave it to my then neighbor Ben for his birthday in 2005.
