Leap Frog!

When she was just twelve years old, Danielle made her first quilt which won the “Best In Class” award at the Pigeon Forge Quilt Show and she’s been quilting ever since! 

Her frog quilt (shown here front and back) won “Best In Class” at the Pigeon Forge Show and “Best In Show” at the Volusia County Fair (Florida) and the Suwanee Valley Quilt Show. She’s seventeen now and currently working on a “Twister” quilt and it looks like it will be a show-stopper, too! She was taught by her grandmother, but does all her own piecing and quilting. Mary Ellen was so impressed with her first quilt when she saw it at the Pigeon Forge show that she gave Danielle some fabric to start her next quilt and Danielle just wanted to stop by to show her what she had done with that fabric. We were all impressed!
