Announcing LADYBUG IN POLKA DOTVILLE – a summer QUILT-ALONG! Please scroll down for latest posts!

Quilt Along with me and experience the exciting adventures of “Ladybug in Polka Dotville” as she and her friends fly over squares and triangles and cross borders, while we play with squares, triangles, and enjoy the fun of accurate piecing, fusible applique and more.

We will be working with fabrics from RJR‘s Crazy for Dots and Stripes in this quilt-along. Come back on 8/25/2010 for the project supplies list. The first installment for the instructions will be posted on 9/3/2010. Hopefully, your quilt fabrics would have arrived for you to get started with the project! Subsequent installments (which will include some embellishing ideas toward the end) will be posted on every Friday after 9/3/2010.

You will also learn cool and fun facts about ladybugs as you quilt along the way. Why do Ladybugs have black spots? What do the spots on the ladybug mean? How did the Ladybug get its name?

Here is the first fun fact for you — Ladybugs actually come in many colors like pink, yellow, white, orange and black. Thus, an alternate colorway is offered below. Choose from either colorway to show your true Ladybug colors!

Share your progress with RJR and post images on RJR’s Facebook page as you quilt along.


Meanwhile, here is a button you can grab if you want to spread the word about “Ladybug in Polka Dotville”. I would love to hear from you if you intend to participate in the Quilt-Along. Email me at wendy2@wendysheppard.net your name, and blog (if you have one). Be sure to title the subject line “Quilt Along”. I shall compile a list of participants in a future post.
