Shelter Box Quilt

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Ladybug, Ladybug Link to website or photo http://www.ericas.com/fabric/ladybug.pdf What are you most proud of? This quilt looks nothing like the ladybug quilt, except in the basic design. It was much more difficult than I anticipated. I'm proud that I completed it by myself, and managed to machine quilt it on my home sewing machine. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pay attention! Because the rows are assembled diagonally, it's really easy to get off course. I wound up doing some frog sewing (rip-it, rip-it) to get back on track when the quilt top turned out wider than it was tall. But I loved it, and hated to raffle it off.
