Years ago a friend asked me to make a quilt for his wife for their anniversary. He wanted a queen size. She like frogs and tropical stuff. I took on the ambitious project of a Hawaiian appliqué quilt using fabric with frogs, parrots, lizards, etc for the center. The entire appliqué was done by hand and took me almost 6 months. I then had my friend Scottie Brooks to do the hand quilting. I regret that I didn’t get a photo of the finished quilt. This photo is of the finished top. The quit was finished in November 2001 (quilted and bound). It measures 104 in square.
I cropped the above photo to try to show more of the detail, but these photos do not do it justice. And while I am still friends with the husband, he and she are no longer together, so I can’t get new and better photos.
