I made this quilt for my newest grandson, Deegan. My son-in-law loves frogs so he wanted me to incorporate frogs in the theme. I chose bright, funky fabrics because I wanted the baby to be surrounded by vibrant colours.
The design was all my own, and as I love using Perle threads to quilt I chose bright colours to match the fabrics. I embroidered "D" in the centre, as well as frogs around it and more frogs in one of the top borders.
The quilt is about 48 x 36 in (they live 4,000 klms from me so I can't measure it, but I think that is pretty close to the right size}. All the quilting and embroidery is done by hand, but the piecing was done by machine, and all the fabrics are 100% cotton. I LOVED making this quilt!
