    I had a lot of fun making this quilt for our bed. Will probably repeat some of the blocks later for the great grandkids. I especially enjoyed making the scrappy turtles with the hats. Think that will be a good one for our great grandson's first big boy quilt when he graduates to a youth bed.

    This is queen size. I hand quilted it.

    The frogs at the bottom are paper pieced as are the turtles and dragon flies on the side borders and top

    The center is a blown up picture of a frog and dragon fly that I googled and the cross stitch blocks was what really started the idea of making a frog quilt.

    I am afraid me and my cat will stand our grounds. The cat loves to lay with the big frog in the middle and usually sniffs each of the scrappy turtles before she curls up.

    The cross stitch frogs were on printed material I bought in a Ben Franklin sttore in a package kit. Don't remember the company name if any on it.
    Had to buy the floss separately.
