    A baby quilt for Sophia

    I made this quilt with just a sheet between the two outer layers so it would be cooler during our hot summers. I named this "Lucky "Lady" Bugs for Sophia" who is a friends 8 month old daughter. I am apprently not using the correct backing when doing the embroidery because it puckered 3 of the four squares with the ladybugs.

    I still like it and am pleased. She gets it next week!

    That is one gorgeous quilt! I love your choice of color and pattern.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    So darn cute. Babies don't know about puckers, so don't tell. You did a great job on this. Sophia is sure lucky.

    Love the quilt -- I did a lady bug quilt for my youngest granddaughter, those make such 'happy' quilts, don't they? You did a wonderful job on the quilt...it will be loved for many years, I'm sure!

    Looks adorable!
    Try using a stablizer when you embroider!
