Cut two of the strips into 1 1/2″ x 36 1/2″ strips, save the leftovers.

All we have left are the ladybugs applique. Please note that there won’t be a post on the instructions next Friday. The ladybug applique instructions will be posted two Fridays from now.
Jill of Apple Avenue Quilts posted a picture of her progress – love her choice of fabrics.
Christine of Crafty Girlz Creations showed her black and white rendition of the quilt. Very cool!
Eileen of Ladybug Lovelies is doing a mini version in that the block size is reduced by half . But look at the Betty Boop corner blocks – they are a hoot! :)
Do send me your progress pictures if you have them. I would love to see them. Meanwhile, I hope you have a lovely weekend! Till next time!
