I picked out this ladybug fabric since I’ve always liked ladybugs and thought it would make a cute picnic blanket.  I’m using an easy 3 yard quilt pattern (one yard each of three fabrics) and have the red fabric for the back.  The plan is to take it to have someone long arm quilt it for me with a winding bug-trail type pattern.

The first time we took this quilt out to use for a picnic, a real ladybug landed on it…no kidding!  🙂
