    Luv'n Ladybugs

    I've been wanting to do a black/white/red quilt and when a family friend told me they using a ladybug theme for their daughter's new "big girl" room, I jumped at the chance to make her a quilt. Win-Win

    I was having trouble get ALL the seams to match, so I used a decorative stitch around the diamonds formed by the white corners of each block to hide any not-quite-matching seams, and I fussy cut ladybugs from one of the fabrics and centered them in the diamonds for the same reason. The blocks were quilted with a simple triple-flower motif using my Viking 600E embroidery machine, and then I stitched-in-the-ditch around each square and the borders.

    My favorite part is the Ladybug Alphabet I found at Embroidery Library that I used to embroider the new big-sister's name on the outer border.

    The backing is a flannel I found that matched one of the fabrics I used.

    This is the first quilt that I've quilted myself. I liked using the embroidery machine for the quilt motifs...

    Hope you like it!

    Love this one! I am using my embroidery machine to quilt. Do you have a particular stabilisher you use?

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
