After I agreed to make the quilt for my brother's high school best friend, I found myself taking a list of do's and don't's from the man's fiancee...grrr! Half the fun of making a quilt, especially as one for a baby shower gift, is picking out designs and colors. She only wanted pinks and browns but also wanted ladybugs. I couldn't find a lot of ladybug patterns so I decided to make an Attic's Window, looking like you're seeing a lawn full of ladybugs out your window. Afterward a friend found the pattern that you see in the borders so I added that in last.
So, this took a lot longer than I wanted it to, because I simply had no ambition to finish it. The shower is in 9 days and it's just now done. Amen!
