Frogs for Greg

I know I said I was not going to start any new quilts until I got some WIPs finished. But.......this fabric kept calling my name.

I originally purchased the fabric for a quilt as you go reversible quilt and it was purchased in June 2008. That method is not for me. Since you can't waste perfectly good fabric what was I to do and it was cut. Sew I sewed the strips together and then added the triangles. The following picture is not good but I think you get the idea.
Then I have to assume this is the layout that Greg liked since he kept pointing to this one.

I'm thinking a contrasting sashing between the diamonds. Maybe more frogs on each side for width?
First diamond, it hasn't been squared and I haven't added the sashing.
And this is the final layout. I still need to square it up.
It's not a large quilt (39" x 55") but just the right size for a small person to cover up with or drag around. I think the yellow backing will be perfect. I can't wait to show you the quilting.

Happy quilting!
