My happy little quilt

I sat, in my dirty house, yesterday and just stitched away at this binding.

After getting the quilting done, and the binding attached, I was just too excited to see the finished product to do anything else. (I have since cleaned the house, and consider my priorities to be in good order despite my husband's grumblings to the contrary.)

I just LOVE this quilt!

The bright, cheerful colors. The fun pattern:

And those adorable frogs!

I'm not a frog person, but how could these not make you smile? The backing is another huge plus. It's a super nice flannel with even more frogs.

It's a twin size - 66" x 76", and for sale in my shop.  Nevermind, I decided to keep it:)

The frog fabrics came from Joann's and the Kona solds used are Pear and Petal. The flannel came from Hobby Lobby. The batting is Warm & White.

I have no idea what I'm going to work on next. I have some double hourglass blocks made & that would be the quickest project to finish, but I also have a some adorable Happy Flowers fabrics I'm wanting to make into a quilt for my daughter. Either way, I suspect I'm hours away from cutting into more fabric. At any given time, I'm usually only hours away from this:)

(Edited to add) I'm linking this up to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday. I'm so glad she's continuing that in the new year. And a link to Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
