Chinese folk quilt for baby

My daughter found this quilt in a thrift shop recently.  I checked it out online and found others nearly identical.  The front side has symbols of good fortune, the frog, butterfly and pandas, and very traditional pineapple blocks. The back has little stuffed insects, meant to protect the baby from poisons or other ills, each centered on a complex quilt block. See below.
If anyone has seen this type of quilt, I would love to know.
