I have had a lot of fun with the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks series. I’ve had blocks in all but 2 issues, and I’m excited to be included in this one, too. Here’s Volume 13:
I have also published 2 books, and I have been designing quilts for many years.
Volume 13’s block is a good block for spring! It features a little ladybug just hanging out. It includes piecing and appliqué. It is called Ladylike, and I hope you like it!
I also designed a quilt using this cute ladybug called Lucky Ladybug, and you can find that pattern in my quilt store. I had fun with ladybugs all over the quilt for this one! It is super colorful and easy to make. I use needle-turn appliqué, but you could easily use fusible for the quilt, if you prefer.
