There are 12 frog appliques which you can arrange however you like. If your applique blocks don't fit together, just add a strip of fabric to the shorter block. That way two blocks become a unit. If units don't fit together, add another strip. I don't pre-plan my quilts. They just grow in this manner. Each frog has beaded eyes. The small frogs have only one bead for each eye. The larger frogs have groups of black iridescent beads surrounded by colored beads. I added the five small froggies to help fill in the empty blocks and add more color to the quilt.
The quilt in the photo measures 29" wide x 28" high.
We have made several quilts with this pattern and they all come out with different measurements because the arrangement of the blocks has been different. Should you leave out a block the whole configuration changes. If you make one block twice (reversing the design and using in a different fabric) the whole configuration changes. Also, if you used all the designs in this pattern twice, the quilt could be really big. Combining this pattern with other Critter Pattern Works patterns will vary the size of the finished quilt even more.
How do we combine blocks of different sizes? If you have a long block and a shorter one and you want them to go together, add a strip of fabric in a different value (darker or lighter than the ones around it) to the shorter one. Sew those two fabrics to the longer applique block and square them up on the outside edges. This is now a unit. Make more units. If the units don't fit exactly together, add more strips to make them work together. When all your units sewn together and are big enough to make it the quilt size you desire, add a border and quilt it.
