    I am about to have a new Dtr in Law (A mothers Dream answer). I would like to make her a quilt with lady bugs on it. Could anyone help me? I love applique and would prefer this method, but will PP also. She is sweet and I just met her and wonder if she got switched at birth. Why didn't I get this one to take home. My son is so lucky.
    Hoping for help'

    Hi, I don't do applique so I drew up a little paper pieced plan for you. I don't know how to put it on this message so look for it in the picture section. It's not perfect but maybe it will be of some help to you. I drew the square at 2" - you can really make it any size you like. Good luck. I hope things go well in the marriage.
    Will be posted under Ladybug PP Plan. -Cathy

    Sorry - I can't seem to do it. I just uploaded pictures and it worked - but this isn't happening. Glad so many others have come to the rescue!

    Great news on the pending nuptuals. I would love to adopt DS girlfriend, just to make sure I can keep her if anything happens!

    Notice the ladybug ad! LOL
