Frog Prince Quilt

Here is a quilt that I made a while ago for my friends the Hoppers.  They planned on a frog theme for their son Nate's nursery, so I decided to make him a frog prince quilt!  I used a couple of applique techniques, including the freezer paper kind for the hearts and circles, and then using iron on steam a seam for the frogs and stitching around it on my machine.  I just sketched a very simple frog, gave him a crown, and added golden balls to complete the story. =)  The pattern is simple, I just used various sizes of squares and rectangles to give it a fun, flowing look. 

It's a great design for someone new to quilting or applique, because the piecing is all straight lines, and there's just a little bit of the applique.  I usually use coloring books or just sketch very simple things to applique, I don't get enough practice to consider myself good at it, I feel like I relearn it every time!
