"Woodsie" and "Don't Bug Me"

I'm getting the "Spring Time Bug"
Left     Don't Bug Me
Right   Woodsie (sold)

The world is stirring and the creatures are coming to life - slowly, but I can feel it.  I am so drawn to bugs. They are so little, but when they mass together I bet they could rule the world and surely will inherit it after we blow our selves up!  Plus - their beauty is amazing!  

The Woodsie quilt on your right was made for a friend for their 25th anniversary.  It is a large queen size - so approx 100"x100".  He had asked for "woodsie" colors. For the applique pieces I used my own "Arts and Craft" and "Art Nouveau" designs and the surround pattern was the good old kaleidoscope - one of my favorites. I had plenty of "woodsie" colored wedges left - so I came up with my "Don't Bug Me" quilt.  This was much smaller - poster size so it worked up quickly.  OK - the applique isn't quick, but I'm talking relatively here!  

Apparently I haven't had enough of the bugs - I'm working on a bigger block now - but nothing to show except 24 legs!
