A Work In Progress

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 appliquĂ© 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!
