I’ve had it up to my eyeballs with the news, Minnesota state shutdown, and stupid people! If this doesn’t make you smile, I give up!
I may love this quilt more than any other I’ve ever made. I pieced it several years ago, maybe even more than four years ago, because I couldn’t find it on the blog. Why didn’t I quilt it sooner? I knew how I wanted to quilt it, but didn’t think I could make it look decent before now.
I decided not to do any quilting on the ladybugs, because they’re rounded in real life.
I put ladybug buttons on two of the posts and black buttons on the rest. Here’s my favorite part of the whole quilt.
I love the grass on the borders!
And now I’m off! We have a huge celebration in the little town where I lived growing up, and where our kids now attend school. The school was started in 1911, so it’s time to celebrate 100 years of God’s faithfulness! It’s your typical small town celebration, complete with a talent show, ice cream social, fireworks, reunions, a church service, and a parade. I’m on the Centennial committee, so it will be a busy few days. I can’t wait!
