    Love that quilt! My DGS would love it too. I love your embroidery work too. Did you use a pattern? Would you share pattern info? Thank you for any info.

    Really like your quilt. Have looked at the bug jar quilts often but haven't made one yet. Love the embroidery you added. Makes neat little hidden treasures on the quilt. Great job and thanks for sharing.

    I used this pattern and tutorial:
    http://bugjarquilt.blogspot.com/

    However, instead of having them "floating" I didn't add the bottom piece and instead cut a 1.5" sashing to look like a bookcase shelf and then added a 2.5" border all the way around to look like the outside of the bookcase.

    Hope this helps.
