I made this a little while ago and finally am getting around to posting it.  My friend wanted something gender neutral and I had some fabric that was left over from other projects that I thought would be nice
The total size ended up being about 42" square.  I hand quilted along the orange  edges and then I quilted around a bug in every green square for a little extra detail.

I think that my friend likes it.  She lives in a different state so it's hard to tell

What a great quilt!  I love the way you quilted a single bug in each square.  That really makes it unique.

That's awesome!  The bugs are adorable, and I like how it's not typical baby colors.  Very fun & unique.
