Friday finishes !

Yeah ....I am making progress !!

I finished my very own "Kiss the Frog"...

for anybody who doesn't know the reason for this name, it is because I when went to buy the backing for the original Kiss the Frog quilt, which was for a wedding gift for a dear friend,  I found this fabric that was the perfect color of yellow. There were printed words "Princess", "Castle and Carriages" , "Crown" , "Once upon a Time" scattered across the fabric. It was perfect.....until I got it home and was working with it and noticed it also had printed.....in very faint, subtle print..."Kiss the Frog" !!!  I had a few second thoughts about using it for a wedding gift...but that passed quickly LOL! Just hope they don't look too closely at the back!

And then because I loved the colors and how this one turned out, so I made one almost exactly the same ...just for me : )
 And I guess the name will stick!

I have also finished the top of the Magic 4 patch..

I love these colors too! Oh no....I might have to make one of these just for me too !! This one is going to a very special girl, who I don't see anymore, and I miss.

So I am off to find some backing for this one....and you never know what else I might find at the local quilt store!
