So I have finished my Charley Harper inspired ladybug mini for my guild swap.
I am really quite taken with it. I used this tutorial to face the quilt and it is a little wonky, so I am kind of sad about that. But overall, a success!
And below is my favourite little guy, the middle one.
Thanks for checking it out!

My guild is having a mini quilt swap and I have my friend Julie as a partner. Luckily she is not a blog reader and so I can share pictures of her quilt in progress. Ladybugs mean a lot to her and she likes Charley Harper, so I decided to emulate some of his drawings. Some are direct copies and some are one I designed myself.
This is my sketch and placement guide for all of the spots.
I haven’t gotten too far along as this is my third try with how to complete this. I have settled on machine appliqué and am finally happy with the result. I will be adding legs and feelers as well.
I hope you will all come back and see the finish!

As I am forever coming up with new ideas and ways to make money, I thought I would show you my latest venture. I am hoping to sell some at my craft fair on the weekend, as well as online.
This one is mine and I love it!
Another great choice!
Ready to make more!
This has been a bit of a long journey with a learning curve, but I am really enjoying the end result. They use lobster clasps so they stay on your wrist easily and the leathers are soft so they move with you. Until next time!
