Default 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.

This is going to be awesome! Is this going to be a quilt or wall hanging? Love this idea!
