Happy Harmless Bugs!

A special couple recently welcomed their baby boy into the world…time to make my first baby quilt!

My inspiration fabric: a colorful large print full of happy little bug faces!

Button Holes by Kari Nichols is the perfect pattern to showcase large prints like these happy bugs.  Soon more joyful creepy crawly fabrics joined the party.

I love how the black sashing helps the bright colors pop even more.  Why not add a bit to the back and add some interest to it?

What quilting design fits better on a happy bug quilt than cute quilted ladybugs, dragonflies, bumblebees and butterflies?  Purchased designs were combined with original to create a fun pattern full of cuteness!

Like the  “Where’s Waldo?” books by Martin Handford, a good search reveals the quilted bugs…unless the light hits the quilt just right.

Such a happy quilt!  Now, off to finish the binding and send it to a special little boy and his family!

Happy Quilting!
