This cute foundation paper pieced ladybird (or ladybug) quilt pattern creates a 5 inch finished block. It was designed to accompany my 5 inch butterfly pattern in the border of a quilt.
I encourage you to have fun with it! Find some funky polkadots for the body of the ladybird. Embroider some antennae and/ or some legs. You could even give it a cute smiley face!
The pattern consists of 4 sections which need to be sewn together. A diagram detailing the layout of the pieces is included as are instructions as to the order in which these are sewn. All the sections include seam allowances. The pattern assumes that you are already able to foundation paper piece, but a few helpful hints are included to help you on your way.
To ensure that the pattern prints out at the right scale, ensure that your printer is set to print "actual size".
I'd love it if you shared images of your butterfly on my flickr group. http://www.flickr.com/groups/tartankiwi
