If you have been following along with my Whimsy Garden sew-along, you have probably noticed the snails in the garden! While I do not appreciate snails in my actual garden, I love them in my sewn garden.
I decided that snail needed a friend so I designed the frog! The frog block will complement all the blocks in Petal + Stem. It’s the same 6″ size so it can pop into all the layouts in my book. I am releasing it now, while the sew-along is in progress, because I think it will work particularly well in the Garden Whimsy quilt.
I sewed up a mirror image Fairy Cap (flower pattern found in Petal + Stem) so that you can see how well he works! I think that snail and frog are going to be great companions! They face in different directions so they can even be placed nose to nose.
For your convenience this pattern also includes a 10″ size. Therefore, you can sew the frog and pair it with the many other gardening themed block patterns that I sell as stand alone PDFs in my pattern shop. I have recently had requests for more of those so I am hoping that this pattern suits!
