Starting the Scrap Quilt

I got the center done of the Lady Bug Scrap Quilt. I just did by blocks in random order, not like the pattern. I hop I can find my black dot fabric. I have some left over from the butterfly quilt and need it for the lady bugs and the boarder. I moved a bunch of stuff around when I put stuff in my parent's storage unit so we could get ready to show the house (which is going very slowly.) Anyway, I'll search more later.

I should have enough of this fabric for a bigger boarder. I loved it when it was in
the stores so I bought a lot. It looks like over a yard is here. Now onto the lady bug boarder. I'm debating about doing the applique before or after I attach the boarder to the quilt. If I do it before I will be working with a much smaller piece of fabric and then I can do the corner ones after it's all on.

I really like it so far. Its darling. I didn't think about the applique when you first showed the pattern - doing it before or after. Good question. You are probably right.

That is going to be such a cute quilt when you are done - can't wait to see it with the ladybugs!
