FMQ, Finished quilts, Designs,

Another finish in between unpicking.  

I was asked to make a baby quilt for an expected baby Boy.

This is The Ladybug Party.. Ladybugs being my trademark - usually hidden in the quilt.

 I completed it and gave it yesterday... with 3 weeks to go!

It is sewn with yli 100 silk and double batted.. wool and cotton
My own design and FMQ

Nothing too dense , although it was tempting.. and the design sewn larger than I normally do.

 I used my Drunkards Path Go Cutter die for this and it went together very easily.

Ladybugs everywhere :)

 I designed the feathers to fit the spaces and used a little contrast with the straight lines...where I used my ruler.

So one more finish..

and now back to my unpicking!

I'm drooling. I love the Drunkard's Path quilt block, but your free-motion quilting just makes it inspirational. Great job.

this is beautiful Joan! I love the quilting - the view from the back is fabulous - a wonderful wholecloth. The double batt will make it so comfortable and cozy!
