    work in progress Lady bugs on tree

    Asked to quilt a child's drawing of lady bugs on a tree.. notice, the sky does not touch the grass.. age 4 knows sky high, grass low and tree inbetween.. this has been fun.
    .
    Blue painter tape rather than pins at this point.

    Tthree types of lady bugs.. two from fussy cut of fabric to one set pieced.. just starting the piecing of the two on the right side. fun project ! big day getting all organized.

    Ditto. Does the Mom know what you are doing? This quilt will be treasured for a long time. BrendaK
    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.
