Now you don't have to live at the beach to enjoy surfing. This quilt is fun for kids of all ages 2 mo. to 80. Pick out your favorite fabrics and get stitchin' on this easy pattern. If the surf's not up and there's a skater in your life, switch out the prints for more manly tones and make a skateboard quilt.
This ladybug quilt was inspired by a cute bit I remember hearing on Sesame Street as a kid. There was a little song about 12 ladybugs going "...to the ladybug picnic." The bright summer colors and the lazy ladybugs invite you to take this quilt on a picnic of your own.
This has been one of our most popular patterns to date. We think it's because of the more masculine colors and pattern. It's a great pattern for that guy in your life and has more character than just a rag quilt or plain square would. Even though this sample is done in earth tones, the pattern would look absolutely beautiful in pretty florals or funky retro prints too.
