My latest project has been a quilt for one of my granddaughters for Christmas. This pattern was so much fun to make. All blocks were made from my stash that I had already. Since the pattern had lady bugs and a flower I decided to go with a summer theme. In the center of each block represents something about summer. There are flip flops, butterflies, bugs, birdhouses and worms. I thought she'd get a kick out of all the insects.
I just love this flower and I'm sure I'll incorporate it into other quilts some day.
Lady bugs have small beads for eyes and there antennas are embroidered with black thread. I will add eyes and antennas when I get it back from the quilter.
I framed my quilt with a small black border and another larger border of red. My big border I used just left over pieces from the quilt to make it look scrappy. I hope she likes it.
Off to the quilter now.
keep on stitchin,
