Cute Quilts for Kids - Ladybug Landing Quilt

I just finished the most complicated Wedding Dress Quilt I've done yet, and needed a fun project.  And I found one!

Cute Quilts for Kids by Kristin Roylance (published by Martingale) has 9 different children's quilts, that put a little spin on traditional quilts.  The book also teaches basic applique and embellishing techniques, even how to put on binding.  The instructions were clear, and the pictures great.

This picture is the Ladybug Landing quilt in the book (Photographer Brent Kane).  I thought it was just too cute to pass up, so gave it a try.  I'd had some ladybug fabric in my stash for a while, and this was the perfect pattern for it. 


The pattern was very straightforward, and I was able to finish the quilt in a couple of days, which was a refreshing change of pace for me.  Since I'm becoming more of a contemporary quilter, and like applique too, these quilts really appealed to me.
