On Grandpa’s Pond

I was behind on this block of the month and since DH went hiking for the day, I thought it would be a great time to catch up on Grandpa’s Pond by Two Sister’s and a Quilt

This is block contains both June and July.   Here you can see that I have laid out the first pieces.  They were then sewn  down before any pieces were laid on top of them.

Next was added  the frog’s tummy.   It  had to be sewn down before the legs as the legs overlap.  At the same time the butterfly and mushroom stems were sewn down.


Then I added the frog legs, mushroom caps, and some of the flowers.   Again, only adding items that won’t have other pieces sewn under them later.


The rest of the flowers and the legs for the windmill are added using the pattern placement guide.


And the last pieces were the blades and center of the windmill.     Here you can see all the pieces up through July


(I’m sorry  this is late, the computer has a mind of it’s own and wouldn’t play nice at all last night.)
