Frog quilt top finished!!

After a lot of stretching and ironing and adding another row, I have finally finished the frog quilt top!
I'm not thrilled with it. It looks OK, but I know how much better it could have been. If nothing else it was a lesson in the importance of careful measuring and cutting.Luke insisted on having his photo taken with it as well. He likes it and that is the most important thing.

For the back I plan to alternating blocks of the frogs and the blue fabric. Most probably about 9 inch blocks. The frog squares on the front are 5 inches, with the whole block theoretically being 8 inches. Maybe the back blocks should be 8 inches? Hmmmmmmmm...

BTW, Leigh did the 1930's husband test. The result?

Beautiful quilt! But a word of caution; it's nigh on impossible to match the back and front perfectly, so if you're worried about that (especially with the quilting) go for strips or somethng which won't be so obvious and squares!
