Frog/Toad #3

I decided my first two quiltlets were a bit tame so this is my last frog/toad/whatever and he's WiLd! I hand stitched his outline in red chainstitch and filled in the interior portions using yellow, turquoise and orange rice stitches, each going in a different direction. The quilting is quick and simple and was designed to further enhance his "wow" factor.

After making these 3 quiltlets, all from the same original sketch, I find that I like the first one best. I think that I am not a person who necessarily improves with further thought and development. I think things out fairly thoroughly before I begin. I wonder if this is why I don't really work in series.
