About a week ago, I added paper-pieced ladybugs to an Add-a-Border round robin block. Several people have asked to know how I made the ladybugs. Here you go.
|Ladybug... Ladybird |
If you have ever pieced a Snowball quilt block, this pattern may seem familiar to you. The ladybug is small enough that you can make it with scraps. Polka dot fabrics look nice on the body.
The pattern is basically symmetrical so it works for all kinds of paper-piecing without reversing. You can enlarge the pattern to make the bug any size you want.
