Sometimes I experiment when I make quilts, and then I don't know what to do with them when I am done. This is one such quilt:

After I finished with it, I really didn't know what to do with it.  Thankfully, my daughter's former babysitter saw a picture of it and really liked it. . .  and she just had a baby boy. . .  so I had the perfect place for it.  
Here is a close up of the froggies that inspired the quilt in the first place:
. . . And I always like to see the back of quilts, so here goes:
The new mommy is very happy with the new quilt, and I am happy it has a good home.

One is less than three.

Quite a successful experiment!  Your design is a great way to highlight fun fabrics using patterned fabric for all the squares and solids/batiks/mini-patterned for the rectangles.  Hmmm, I think I've got a charm pack and jelly roll that would be just right for this....
